Usher goes back to his roots on the new Diplo-produced, “Climax.” The sultry, sad track is all about the end of one sexy love affair, as Usher emotes over a song that sears and smolders. Yes, the song deserves that much alliteration; it’s just that hot. Usher’s voice dances between his higher range and a lower range, as the slow, pulsing grind of the song plays underneath. He sings about falling for a girl, after kicking off a casual relationship with her. The song’s crescendos, both emotionally and musically, are truly engaging and Usher, who has been favoring upbeat dance tracks as of late, proves that he still has the chops to make truly deep love songs.
