Music Review: Usher’s ‘Looking 4 Myself’

Release: June 12, 2012

Label: RCA

Purchase: Amazon | iTunes

Usher‘s latest sounds like a battle between r&b, pop, and dance. It’s a great mixture nonetheless, and I did enjoy every single track. I must admit I wasn’t expecting to being that David Guetta contributed to the album (sorry I’m not a fan of his generic sound). However, there were a couple tracks that won me over completely. 

Looking 4 Myself is a wonderful depiction of where the artist is at this point in his life. It signifies where he’s going next with his music, and whether he’s prepared to take it to the next step.

However, “Climax” is a sultry, seductive, groovy, passionate, and provocative new single that gets me anticipating his seventh studio album. The track embodies not only soul, but elements of modern pop, dubtep, as well as electronic effects all intertwined together creating a beautiful sound. I’m taken a back by this electrifying beat; every hair on my hands stood up the first time I heard it, and my reaction remains the same with every listen.  Usher’s voice gets my blood boiling by his steamy tone and sensual harmonies. Listen, if you haven’t already, and be mesmerized: Continue reading “[Music Review] Usher’s “Climax””
