The Best You Never Heard: Usher’s Unexpected Duets

6229c55fb7ed72fef88d35caacf46d2c The Best You Never Heard:  Ushers Unexpected Duets

R&B ringleader Usher has long stood a solo symbol of the R&B divo – outlasting many of his 90′s male (and female) contemporaries to usher in chart-topping albums and singles over several genres.  While able to claim the title of one of the most successful male solo acts of all time, the singer has still found time to lay his recognizable falsetto over many-a-rapper’s hooks and hits.

But, some may not know of his oft-under praised duets with singing co-stars.

On the heels of today’s ‘Lemme See’ video release (which features Rick Ross) and news the singer was set to duet with the late Amy Winehouse shortly before her death, That Grape Juice looks to salute Ush’s smoother musical couplings with some of R&B’s leading divas – Beyonce, Brandy, Alicia Keys, and Omarion.  Get into old favorites and new acquaintances below:

Usher & R. Kelly – ‘Same Girl’

Usher & Brandy – ‘Who Is She 2 U’ (Remix)

Usher & Alicia Keys – ‘My Boo’

Usher & Beyonce – ‘Love In This Club’ (Part 2)

Usher & Monica – ‘Slow Jam’

Usher & Omarion – ‘IceBox’ (remix)

Usher & Alicia Keys – ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ (Remix)

 

Usher’s latest album may have already hit stores this week, but here’s hoping the singer has many more duets like the aforementioned up his sleeve.

    I like his 2 songs with Lil Jon (Yeah and Lovers & Friends). I also like the You Don’t Have To Call remix song with Ludscris. Also the song Lets Straighten it Out with Monica is good.

    Slow jam always reminds me of that ep of sister sister when Tamera snuck out and had enough time to dance with her bf Jordan and they danced to that song.

    He should have done more features from singers n not as many rappers. I wasn’t a fan of how those songs were lyrically put together n his vocals on those songs.
    Slow jams remind me of sister sister bc tamera danced to it w/ her bf on an ep

    I’ve always been surprised at just how good him and Alicia sounded together. Artistically she is stronger as a writer and musician. But vocally they are a perfect match. They should record a joint album.

    Sidenote: Usher also recorded a version of “My Boo” with Beyonce singing instead of Alicia.
