Video: Usher – “Good Kisser”

Everyone wants a slice of that funky, throwback pie right now, even Usher, who sounds as if he’s been listening to a lot of Prince lately.

The pop/R&B superstar is pretty hit or miss for me, and the song’s title nearly put me off listening altogether, but I’m happy I gave it a chance, because this is a good lesson in using the sounds of the past without sounding stale or tired. Plus, you get to see a topless Usher drumming in a huge empty space which is a strangely majestic sight.

Complex reports that Usher has been working on his upcoming album with Pharrell, Skrillex, Jermaine Dupri, and Diplo.

    Loving the new sounds he’s bringing to pop. I would LOVE to hear another Usher/Pharrell track hoping something like this is in the works with The Neptunes’ upcoming album.
