A year after 'Climax,' the collaborators unveil another Valentine's Day single
The Grammy-nominated producer offers a pinging, bass-heavy bed for Usher's seductive vocals, as he turns to falsetto to convince a stranded woman at a club to come home with him: "Go missin'/baby, ain't nobody gotta know." Less anthemic than "Climax," the song recalls the synth-fueled, slow-burning R&B of newcomers such as the Weeknd.
"You loved what I gave you last Valentine's #Climax So here is 'Special delivery from the cloud'Happy Valentine's Day!," Usher wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
"Climax" was a major hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at No. 1 and leading Usher's latest album, "Looking 4 Myself," to a chart-topping debut on the Billboard 200 last June.
