Usher has released a couple new tracks over the past month or two and the feedback of fans has been mainly positive with the last released track “Climax”. I think we can anticipate a wholesome album of pop, r&b, and hip-hop features. Check the latest one full of sex and bass! We’ll see if we can get a Confessions follow up out of his upcoming album set for late summer 2012 “Looking For Myself” OR flop… personally I can’t wait!
The origination for Cinco de Mayo, “The Fifth of May”, commemorates the conquering of the French army by the Mexicans at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is mainly a regional holiday rejoiced and respected in the state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, but not as much in other parts of Mexico. Being that California is the melting pot it is, we all need a reason to celebrate, here’s one.
