Usher ‘Scream’: ‘Fuerza Bruta’ Star Goes All Night on New Single
On the heels of his slow jam smash “Climax,” Usher has returned with the 4/4 dancefloor banger, “Scream,” which is sure to make his fans do just that.
Boasting a Jersey Shore-pleasing trance breakdown, Usher touts his sexual prowess over the Max Martin-produced beat. “If you want to scream, yeah/ Let me know and I’ll take you there” he croons. “If you want it done right/ Hope you’re ready to go all night.”
Usher’s seventh album, Looking For Myself, is in stores June 12, featuring production by Martin, who helmed Ursher’s similar-sounding 2010 single “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love.” The effort also stars several other Raymond v. Raymond collaborators, including Jim Jonsin and Rico Love, alongside Diplo, Salaam Remi, and most likely David Guetta, with whom Usher recently hit the studio.
“If you take no risk, you stand to gain nothing in life. Dare to be different. I don’t look like you, I don’t walk like you, I don’t dance like you, I don’t move like you or talk like you. That doesn’t make me odd, that makes me who I am. I want people to feel that essence of growth,” Usher said of the album. “This album is very consistent in the aspect of being eclectic.”
Meanwhile, Usher will be guest-starring in two performances of the off-Broadway show “Fuerza Bruta” beginning Friday (April 27) in NYC, tackling the leading role.
