He's one of the most accomplished and hard-working artists of all time. Even the legends before him like MJ, Prince, Bobby Brown, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin have all praised him and are (or were) fans. James Brown himself named Usher the Godson of Soul! Outside of that his accomplishments are pretty much unmatched by all his peers. He has 9 #1 hits across 3 consecutive decades (the 5th artist to ever do this). He was also the 5th artist to have #1 hit singles 5 albums in a row. And on top of that, He has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide. More than Alicia Keys, Brandy, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Mary J Blige. . The only one of his peers who sold more albums are Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, And Eminem. The only one who has more #1 hits is Mariah Carey. And his album Confessions is freaking DIAMOND. People still talk about that album today even though it came out 16 years ago. He also influenced all the pop and R&B acts who came after him like Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Justin Bieber, Summer Walker, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Drake and hundreds more. Did anyone mention he's also the only singer with an NBA championship ring? He honestly deserves a lot more recognition for the impact he's had on the industry. Who else who debuted in 1993 is still relevant today and still getting hits and going platinum? Barely anyone. So no, He's not overrated. More like underappreciated honestly.
