When it comes to pleasing fans, very few come better than Usher.
Securing chart success with dance numbers while leading the way for R&B’s freshest stars with ‘Climax’, he has come under heavy praise from ‘Beatles’ legend Paul McCartney thanks to that very song.
Co-written and produced by the singer himself, Elijah Blake and Diplo, this week saw Mark Ronson (the producer of McCartney’s new album) speak to Wenner’s ‘Rolling Stone’ about the time he played the love song for the legend. Upon hearing it, Paul shared:
“I love where all the sonics sit in this.”
His thoughts on the cut come two months after it picked up the Grammy award for Best R&B Performance and peaked at #1 on the US Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart. Pulled from the star’s latest album ‘Looking For Myself’, the song precedes the release of Dance smash ‘Scream’ and the aforementioned Blake’s debut mix tape ‘Bijoux 22‘.
