New Song: Usher – ‘Hot Toddy (Ft. Jay-Z)’

Published: Wednesday 28th Jul 2010 by Trent

With the release of his new EP, ‘Versus’, on the horizon (August 24th to be precise), a new track from Usher has surfaced. The Polow Da Don-produced song, entitled ‘Hot Toddy (Ft. Jay-Z)‘, comprises backing vocals from Ester Dean. This is reportedly an alternate version of the record which will feature Ciara on the EP.

Polow sure knows how to craft a beat! While not as infectious as ‘Lil Freak (Ft. Nicki Minaj)’, it’s clear that Usher has another hit on his hands. The bombastic bass and the swagger in Usher’s vocals will ensure that this will a monster in the clubs. With tracks like this nobody will even remember the disaster that was ‘Here I Stand’ by the end of the year!

    Really I love Usher but anything Jay-Z is apart of is a MISS

    Can’t wait to hear the version w Ciara on it

  3. ADE July 28, 2010

    Hit! I like everything about it (apart from Ester Dean’s voice). Jay Z’s verses are always the s***…

  4. annie July 28, 2010

    I like it. Lets see with Ciara version.

    Put Beyonce on this and it will shoot straight to #1

  7. Bullfighter808 July 28, 2010

    Agreed, song is tight. Can’t wait for Ciara’s version. I don’t know why they would bother having Ester Dean’s version come out. Did they just want to highlight Usher/Jay Z or something?

    The Polow-tha-Don/Usher combination works – not as good as the Jermaine Dupri/Usher combo; but at least Polow gives Usher some of his urban swag back, because he can occasionally loose it. All in all, really hot track (I just listened to it about 3 times without noticicing)! The title of the song is cool, and for anyone who knows what a “hot toddy” is, its kinda cool to hear someone’s take on it on a record. Ester Dean’s vocals were on point, and I hardly can understand why people are hating; because if you put Ciara or anyone else on the track, I cannot imagine it being that much better.

    Either way, this song might prove to be an urban hit to compliment his international hit “OMG”, way to go Ursh!

    Doesn’t sound finished 😛

    I like it. Can’t wait to see Polow do Monica’s next album. I have a hunch that he will executive produce it.

    What the heck is a hot toddy?

  11. Bahahaha July 28, 2010

    This song is not it at all sorry!

  12. Fred July 28, 2010

    Sounds ok but I agree with @rawr

  13. truth serum. July 28, 2010

    Ester Dean’s voice is on it bc this is the demo… before Ciara put her vocals. She also probably contributed to writing it. Her voice will be gone in the final and Ciara will be singing her parts. This is leaked and not the final.

    A hot toddy is a drink– tea or coffee mixed with whiskey.

  14. MrIncredible July 28, 2010

    Am i the only one who think Ciara won’t so half as good as Ester? lol

  15. MrIncredible July 28, 2010


  16. CIARA FAN 21 July 28, 2010

  18. Rawr July 28, 2010

    To be honest i think ciara’s been dropped from the song 🙁

  19. TAM July 28, 2010

    @PLAIN AND SIMPLE is clearly a hater. How is anything Jay-z is apart of a “miss” if all his ish is successful with NO flops? Lmao! Makes no sense.

  20. arfa July 28, 2010

    mean song

  21. alex July 28, 2010

    plain and simple be quiet. Jay Z is the only hope for hip hop…one of the greats that are still alive.

  23. Topman July 28, 2010

  24. UmYa July 28, 2010

    Wow this is good 😮
    Between this, DJ got us fallin in love & There Goes my baby I can finally say welcome back Usher.

  25. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) July 28, 2010

    He should have featured Brandy or Niki………………………………just my opinion!

  26. Drew July 29, 2010

    ALL yall need to get ready I’m putting it out there Ciara, and Chris Brown as the opening acts for Ushers Tour!!!!


  27. VA STAND UP!!! July 29, 2010

    @Drew: Hmmm…how do you know this?? Where are you getting your infor from? Don’t get my hopes up!! This better be true!

    Anywho…I do like this song a lot. He definitely is going for that club hit. ‘DJ Got Us Fallin in Love’ was definitely for the mainstream. I don’t doubt it will be a hit, but it was way too pop for me. Like something I would hear in the ‘gay’ clubs. I felt like he was abandoning his r&b audience and catering to the ‘white folks’. I am sure it will be a big hit though especially overseas.

    He connected with his urban audience again on this one! This is the Usher I know and love and prefer!
