Usher’s got love on his new single, “I Don’t Mind.”
The Atlanta singer jumps on a hand clap-laced uptempo beat with reassuring words for a special lady who works the pole.
“Shawty, I don’t mind if you dance on a pole that don’t make you a hoe,” he sings before jumping into the all-about-the-money chorus.
His collaborator, Juicy J, is the perfect assist man for the track, as he draws on his penchant for stripper anthems with the line, “Lap dance for the first date, Bet I throw a few bands that’s third base/Is ok if you work late we can still party hard like it’s your birthday.”
The pair will be performing at the 2014 BET Awards Sunday, June 29. Usher is currently working on his eighth album, which will find him linking up with the likes of Pharrell, Jermaine Dupri and Diplo. “I Don’t Mind” follows his release of “Good Kisser” earlier this month.
