I love dragging Flusher as much as the next troll, but even I can’t deny that the First Lady of Rev-Pop has hit a home run with his new single “Climax”. The slinky urban groove is everything that contemporary R&B should be in 2012, and while I wish this was Justin Timberlake’s big comeback single instead, he probably wouldn’t sing it quite as well as Flush-Flush has.
I’m not so hot on the music video, though. It’s all kinds of extra, with Usher delivering contemporary sign language choreography and racing around the place with a gun.
This ain’t The Faculty, bitch!
But even Usher’s OTT emoting can’t bring down a song this good. It’s already a guaranteed No. 1 on the R&B charts, and I also expect it to hit the top five –or at least the top 10– on the Hot 100.
Check out Usher climaxing below.
