Their natural camaraderie, not to mention the musical alchemy that occurs when these four friends PERFORM, is palpable throughout the band's new album Push And Shove — a supercharged blend of ska-rock, dancehall, and electronic pop that will remind people why No Doubt has maintained its position as one of the most beloved and commercially successful acts of the past 20 years.

With the success of LOOKING 4 MYSELF Usher extends his career reign for having the most number ones ever on the R&B/Hiphop Charts during the SoundScan era.
