Usher & The Story of 'All About U'
 

 
Although intended for an October 31, 2000, release under the title All About U, the album was delayed numerous times, following the leak of several tracks onto the online music store Napster. Usher subsequently recorded new tracks and released the album under the new title, 8701, which is derived from Usher singing for the first time in his local church in 1987 and the album's release date of 2001.

"The road to 8701’s release itself was fraught. The original version of the album, then titled All About U, was leaked to Napster (yes, really, #tbt) prior to its first tentative release date in October 2000. To combat the disappointment of the album’s premature first iteration, Usher recorded seven new songs, including both the Classic(™) “U Don’t Have to Call” and the ultra-s*xy “Twork It Out.” The newly reworked (and titled) 8701 was released over nine months later, on 08/07/01. Its name was also a nod to the arc of Usher’s love affair with music: 1987 is the year Usher points to as the start of his career, and 2001 is the year he released this album. In other words, 8701 was at once his journey and his destination."

Facts. He gave us My Way, 8701 & Confessions. He just couldn't top Confessions(most people couldn't).

“You don’t have to call” and “what I came to do” were throw aways originally written and produced for MJ ala Neptunes but his camp turned them down so I guess the delay did him good then

I love Michael but I don't think he would've fit U Don't Have to Call, song landed in the right place IMO

Hence why his team turned it down..but pharrell said he ran into him and thinks MJ slightly had regret
