“I’ve known USHER since we met as teenagers in 1997. I’ve counted him as a friend since then. I’ve also watched him work indefatigably hard over the past thirty years to turn into the global superstar that he is today. Now, I could not be more excited to welcome him and the legendary L.A. Reid to gamma. with mega! USHER left the conventional system, bet on himself, and signed himself to himself. Wow. I hope that it’s an example for other major artists to come. USHER and L.A. are true music pioneers and their attention to detail for creative excellence is exceptional. We’ve been having so much fun already and I am truly excited for what’s to come. It’s amazing to see the new music explode onto urban and pop radio in the U.S., and globally as well.”Larry Jackson
