Usher – Burn Review
Every ‘Burn’ by Usher review describes the song as the most compelling of all the slow burn love songs from him. The track is basically a breakup song, assumed to allude to the recording artist’s real life, personal romantic issues.
Not only was this song a commercial success; it also earned him Grammy Award nominations specifically for R&B Song of the Year and Best R&B Male Vocal. The track hit the No. 1 spot in music charts in the US, in the UK, and in many other countries around the world.
The song was originally intended to be the lead single for the 2004 album ‘Confessions.’ However, it was pushed back following more favorable responses for the track ‘Yeah!’ Instead, this song was released as the CD’s second single. But its potential for success remained undeterred.
As expected, the track was positively and warmly received by music critics from around the world. In 2009, the same track was ranked as No, 21 in the list of most successful tracks in the decade 2000 to 2009 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It also bagged the Favorite Song award from the Kids’ Choice Award in 2005.
