New Song: Ludacris – ‘Rest Of My Life (ft. Usher & David Guetta)’

Published: Thursday 1st Nov 2012 by Sam

Ludacris may be blazing up Urban radio with Winter sizzler ‘Representin'(ft. Kelly Rowland)’, yet that doesn’t mean the Disturbing The Peace hitmaker hasn’t got plans for the Pop arena.

The rapper /actor  has called on Usher and David Guetta for Urban-Dance number ‘Rest Of My Life’, which serves as the first mainstream offering from his new album ‘Ludaversal’ (due early next year).

Having already collaborated with Usher on 2004 mega-hits ‘Yeah’ and ‘Lovers & Friends’, it’s the involvement of Guetta which makes for the most intriguing read on paper.

Does the union deliver on song, though? The answer awaits after the jump…

While the “generic Dance thing” is oh so played out, Luda still scores points here. For, the flavoursome and character-filled delivery of his bars cannot be diluted nor denied.

The cut is unlikely to garner many spins here at TGJ HQ, but we can see how it will on Pop radio. Winning?

    This song makes that there is still hope. I think it delivered its message and the beat projected the intent

        Let’s be honest we all say that we want urban and R&B singers and rapper to stick to their roots, however the music climate has changed and R&B does not have the commercial power that it had in the 1990’s.But on the flip side when their stick to their roots and don’t perform well commercially we are the same ones that call them flops.

    I’m a big Luda fan so it is hard for him to do wrong. I don’t like these suburban club anthems but this is as good as any of the others out there.

    I luv sum Luda……he is one of the most underrated rappers. Luda keep them hits coming.

  10. tudde November 1, 2012

    Sounds extremly much like Afrojacks Can’t stop me..-

    No Luda. Not feeling this — at all. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised tho…in the past 5 years he’s worked with lame ass pop acts like Jesse McCartney, Justin Bieber and Taio Cruz. After all that homosexuality, this gay s*** comes as no big surprise, even if it’s still disappointing. Luda is turning into Flo Rida.

    I didn’t even listen to it. Soon as I saw the name “David Guetta,” I knew that it was something I didn’t need to hear. It’s fitting that Usher’s sell out ass would be on the track too. Two desperate negroes in early mid-life crisis throwing their core fans under the bus to ‘Tom’ it up for the suburban shopping malls. How sad.

    He can keep that record he did with Kelly Rowland too, since that s*** was just him being fake for a few minutes before he ultimately unveiled this s***.

    Hood pass revoked.

    These sad urban acts go so far out of their way to be make themselves accessible to the “Call Me Maybe” crowd, but in the end what does it get them? If they’re lucky they might score a song that top 40 radio halfheartedly embraces, but the album it’s on ends up flopping harder than all of the others before it because they lose their black/genre fans by going pop and in the meantime the white people that they’re trying so hard to impress don’t care enough to buy it either. Sometimes selling out isn’t worth it. If it means being limited to being a superstar in your own genre, then so be it. Because from what I’m seeing, none of these urban acts are gaining any album sales or superstar points by following the crowd and “going where the money is.”

    But whatever. The truth is that I’ve been done with Luda since after “Splash Waterfalls.” His better days are long behind him. No matter what he comes out with I’m not gonna buy it, and not because I’m too cheap, don’t support my favorites, would rather illegally download…or whatever the stupid stereotype about the black music buyer is these days…but instead because Luda is 10 years past his prime and I’ve moved on. So let him go ahead and make these silly ass pop-rap-dance songs that’ll lower his reputation, stain his catalog and come back to haunt him after the fact. Let him do a song with Guetta, Taylor Swift or some other corny pop act outside his genre, thinking that it’ll keep him trendy enough to stay afloat. I’m past caring what **he** himself does; my beef is more with the mentality of acts like him these days, thinking that by going pop it’s getting them something, when usually it doesn’t.

      I agree. No one buys an album of dance/pop tracks. Maybe a few singles, but didn’t Pittbull’s CD do horribly?

  14. RUDE NAVY November 1, 2012

    not here 4 it and i hate this new sound guetta a is rolling with ATM.

  15. Oh Yeah!!! November 2, 2012

    Love LUDA!

  16. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare November 2, 2012

    Oh well, I guess he can’t let Flo Rida make ALL of the money now can he? *sigh*

    I generally like his work but this is so…so…bad.
