Usher released hypnotic new single “Crash,” from his imminent eighth LP Flawed, set to drop this summer.
“Crash” was produced by f a l l e n and Carlos St. John and features Usher’s go-to heartbroken falsetto and rhetorical questions on the dance floor. “Would you mind if I still loved you?” he sings in the chorus, “Would you mind if things don’t last?” The track brews R&B storm clouds like Usher’s knock-out 2012 ballad “Climax.”
Earlier this week, Usher released “No Limit feat. Young Thug” on TIDAL, which will be available on all streaming platforms Monday, June 13th. “Make you say uh, no limit/ Got that Master P, no limit baby,” Usher sings, referencing Master P’s 1997 track “Make ‘Em Say Uhh.”
Usher’s other endeavor this summer is portraying boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the biopic of boxer Roberto Duran. “Hands of Stone” is in theaters August 26th and co-stars Robert De Niro.
