Elijah Blake & Usher: ‘Time’ Names ‘Climax’ Top Song Of 2012

Published: Wednesday 5th Dec 2012 by David

For many a Pop fiend, Usher‘s 18 year chart reign has made him an ever present/welcome force in the world of music- just as influential today as he was upon the launch of his self titled debut.

Now, in what is a testament to his ability to both spot and craft a hit, his smash hit single ‘Climax’ has been named the Top Song of 2012 by ‘Time’ Magazine.

Details below…

Co-written by ‘Bijoux 22’ singer Elijah Blake and the singer himself, the cut now sits atop a list of ‘Time‘s favorite numbers released this year, beating PSY‘s ‘Gangnam Style’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ to the top spot.

1. Usher, “Climax”
2. PSY, “Gangnam Style”
3. Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe”
4. Taylor Swift, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
5. Parquet Courts, “Master of My Craft”
6. Skrillex, “Bangarang”
7. Nicki Minaj, “Roman in Moscow”
8. Pussy Riot, “Putin Lights Up the Fires”
9. The Belle Brigade, “No Time to Think”
10. Can, “Graublau”

Lifted from the star’s seventh studio album ‘Looking For Myself’, the number peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs, and boasts production from ‘Paperplanes‘ mastermind Diplo.

Fans can look forward to Elijah Blake’s hotly anticipated ‘Bijoux 22‘ mix tape in the coming days and Usher‘s stint on NBC’s ‘The Voice’, spring 2013.

    Climax was an awesome song but it was a horrible representation of his album! It sucked! I was very disappointed!

  5. Mad-On-Her December 5, 2012

    Climax was a great song, if he’d done a whole album in a similar vein I bet he would have had more success than he did this year. Scream is so damn depressing.
    Why is Gangham style in this list?
    My song of the year is Kelly Clarkson – Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)
