Usher is back, in a big way. The singer dropped the sensual, highly erotic single “SexBeat” on Friday morning (April 10), a NSFW banger on which he re-teams with his “Yeah!” compatriots Lil Jon and Ludacris. Did we mention that this song is very passionate?
After a classy piano interlude opening, Luda and Lil Jon jump on the 808 beat and very quickly make the speakers sweat with a verse that just might have your stereo blushing. “Sex deep, turn it up loud, ’til I blow my speakers/ Got lower than my subwoofers/ Or high as my tweeters/ My diva, eat you up, like you my gourmet chocolate Godiva/ Call FEMA, got her wetter than Hurricane Katrina,” Luda raps over ad libs from Jon and additional lyrics about double-digit orgasms and other bedroom gymnastics.
Usher then glides in for the silky chorus, crooning, “Sex beat, yeah/ Sex beat, ohhh/ Put this on and watch us take it as far as you let me/ Sex beat, yeah/ Sex beat, ohhh/ When we get in that room and the bass go boom/ Something about the way you make me move, move.” You get the picture. Lil Jon teased the two-year-old track last week during an Instagram Live battle with T-Pain.
Coincidentally, “SexBeat” drops exactly 16 years to the day after Usher’s blockbuster Confessions album hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated April 10, 2004. Confessions hosted the trio’s iconic team-up “Yeah!” which topped the Billboard Hot 100.
“SexBeat” follows on the heels of last month’s star-studded visual for Usher’s “Don’t Waste My Time” featuring Ella Mai. The lavish pool party features Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Christian Combs, actors Jamie Kennedy and Evan Ross and many more.
