All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Five months after the release of Raymond V Raymond -- shortly after the album went platinum -- a deluxe edition containing a second disc was released. Containing eight songs and dubbed Versus, the second disc was also spun off as a separate release, sparing devout Usher fans from the irritation of buying Raymond V Raymond a second time.

With the addition of Raymond V Raymond's "There Goes My Baby," the number one R&B song at the time of release, the stand-alone Versus technically contains nine songs. It mostly resembles a batch of leftovers, though it also functioned as a momentum maintainer; two other songs, the Euro-pop club track "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love" and the sleazed-up "Hot Tottie" featuring a Jay-Z guest verse, were on the R&B chart before the disc was issued. For the most part, Versus falls in line with its parent release's mix of detached hedonism and pleading heartache.

    WOW!

    This CD is worth it. USher is a young, talented musician whos got it all- he can sing, dance, everthing! DJ Got US Falling In Love Again is probably the best along with Hot Tottie.
