Usher - "Climax" Video

Earlier this year, Usher linked with Diplo to make “Climax,” a pretty amazing heartbroken R&B track with masterful dance-music flourishes and an excellently subtle string arrangement from indie-classical wunderkind Nico Muhly. It’s an early contender for single of the year and a fine reminder that, no matter what you may think of Usher and/or Diplo, they are both extremely good at driving their respective lanes. The new “Climax” video is a bit of fairly typical R&B-video melodrama, all about Usher contemplating the different tragic paths he and his ladyfriend could take, but it’s a nice excuse to enjoy the song again. Watch it below.

Usher hasn’t announced a new album yet or anything, but the “Climax” single is at iTunes now.
