Usher and Diplo's last collaboration was the sonically nuanced, sex-tacularly sensitive "Climax." Their new one isn't so subtle, with Usher trying to persuade a woman to ditch the schmo she came to the club with and high-tail it back to his pleasure cave for some first-class Ushin'. "A chance like this only happens once in a lifetime," he informs her, like the Mr. Roarke of hitting it on the down-low. Diplo's glowering synth stabs give the track a nervous, predatory throb.

    LMFAO | 2011

"I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
