Music superstar Usher was in the studio recently working on material for his seventh album, which is due out this spring as the follow up to his 2010 release, Raymond Vs. Raymond. And while in the studio, he teamed up with Philadelphia-based super-producer Diplo, who's probably best known to R&B fans as the man who produced Chris Brown's 2011 smash hit "Look at Me Now." The result is a slow-burning jam called "Climax," where over a moody electronic beat, Usher sings about a bad break-up: "I gave my best, it wasn't enough/you get upset, we argue too much," he sings. No definitive word yet on if this is the official lead single, or the name and release date of Usher's new album, but Diplo has posted the song on his SoundCloud page for public listening.
