Us Rating: **1/2

Expect Usher's sixth CD to be a Confessions 2? Keep waiting. The dad of two — who bared romance regrets on his 2004 opus -- only alludes to his 2009 divorce from Tameka Foster on three tracks (like the No. 1 R&B single "Papers"). The rest are smooth but standard seduction jams, such as the throbbing opener, "Monstar." (Jive/ LaFace)
