Usher ft. Young Jeezy: 'Love In This Club'

Usher ft. Young Jeezy: 'Love In This Club'
Released on Monday, Apr 28 2008

Despite taking a four-year break between albums, a period in which he got married, became a father and made his Broadway debut, Usher's popularity remains undimmed. 'Love In This Club', the R&B superstar's first solo single since 'Caught Up' back in March 2005, recently became his eighth US number one hit.

It's not hard to see why, because it's essentially the classic R&B slow jam given a gleaming 2008 makeover. The lover-man lyrics and bump 'n' grind rhythm are the same as ever, but writer/producer Polow Da Don cranks up the drama with some massive, space age synths and plenty of post-'Umbrella' "eys". A gruff rap from Young Jeezy boosts its credentials too, adding a nice bit of grit to proceedings. Hardly the most original of comeback singles, especially considering how long Usher's been away, but this does sound very, very now.
