Usher's fifth studio album, titled Here I Stand, has everything we've come to know and love about the R&B superstar: top-notch production (Polow Da Don, Jermaine Dupri); A-list guest spots (Jay-Z, will.i.am); and, of course, a healthy mix of party club bangers and smooth slow jams. When you pre-order the deluxe version of Here I Stand, "Love In This Club Part II" (featuring Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, and Young Jeezy) will download immediately and you'll receive an additional bonus track when it's released on May 27

Editor's Choice: Flight of the Knife
With elaborate musicianship, quirky lyrics, and mind-bending chord structures, "normal" is the last word one could use to describe Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears' Flight of the Knife. The Brooklyn-based quintet borrows heavily from classic rock influences like Queen and the Kinks, but fuses it with radiant contemporary pop melodies. For this reason, amongst many, Flight of the Knife is our latest Editor's Choice selection.

Akon serves as the executive producer for his upcoming album Not 4 Sale and, not suprisingly, he appears on the set's lead single "Dangerous."
