On Usher’s most recent venture into unfamiliar waters, the R&B vet is not only doing some deep soul searching within his cooing melodies, but he’s also looking to increase his barrage of hits by conquering a new realm of music. Evolution is what the “Climax” singer is extremely keen on, and on June 12th, he’ll do a lot of reflecting, as he makes an effort to emotionally find himself on the aptly titled project Looking 4 Myself.
As Usher dabbles and experiments with a wider spectrum of sounds, such as the James Brown [throwback] inspired “Twisted” with Pharrell, he flips the script and turns it up a notch by recruiting the flamboyant Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky for “Hot Thing” – an modern day ode to fine-as-wine ladies with, umm, big ole’ derrières. You can’t be mad at that. Stream the song down below.
