"What's the problem with these rappers? They don't know how to play it cool," Usher says on the intro to Rick Ross' latest single. For Ross, playing it cool means having producer Rico Love slow the tempo, bringing in Usher for a sexy chorus, and laying on muy suave rhymes ("Rose petals on her bed, I walk in unannounced"). As always, high romance is inseparable from high finance: "She kissin' on me, biting on my bottom lip/In the Galleria all I get is 'Buy me this.'... 50 stacks in her bag so she know it's real."
