Usher, 'Climax'

15/50

Usher has always had a Madonna-esque ear for the sound of the moment. Jumping on a Diplo beat for this smash single was one of his savviest moves ever: The understated electro brings out a stunning sensitivity in Usher's vocals. The lyrics are about a harsh breakup, but the delivery is so heavenly you barely noticed.
