Today Usher celebrates his 33rd birthday. However it’s the singer’s fans who have perhaps been gifted the most – for the video for ‘Without You’, the star’s collaboration with David Guetta, was unwrapped a few moments ago.
The whimsical cut is lifted from the French DJ’s guest-heavy ‘Nothing But The Beat’ LP.
Peep the video, which sees the party span the globe (quite literally) after the jump…
Solid video, however the song has yet to leave ‘meh’ territory for me.
The issue lies in the fact Guetta has consistently been serving up essentially the same sound on many of his releases, while Usher seems to have lost the understanding of what his own sound / brand even is. Tracks such ‘OMG’ successfully saw him adapt to the times without compromising his Urban core. Yet, it’s not hot when -this deep in the game-he’s singing on a track which sounds like it was cooked up for Flo Rida.
