Last night I had a nice conversation over a few glasses of water with some friends. We discussed the musical stylings of Usher, most specifically how he’s dominated the summers for almost every two years since the mid-2000s. Our very non-stats backed convo led us to the following timeline:

2004: Confessions Pt. II, Yeah!, Burn

2008: Love In This Club

2010: OMG, DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love

2012: Scream

Usher, Usher got me thinking about songs of the summer. So I did a little billboarding and fell down the rabbit hole of looking from hit songs of summers’ past.
