Today Usher released the third single from Looking For Myself, “Lemme See" (there's some nice album title synergy for you). Produced by Jim Jonsin, this latest track features booming bass, cracking snare buildups, an epic chorus and the mandatory high-profile, punchline-ridden guest verse from Rick Ross. It stands in contrast to the first two releases as the first pure hip-pop radio track from the upcoming LP. The Diplo-produced “Climax," released in February, touched on both R&B and EDM, with Usher's soothing vocals and open-aired synths that begged to be remixed (and have been, over and over, successfully). His second single, “Scream," fell right into the 2012 pop zeitgeist -- it's a four-on-the-floor, fist-pump friendly dance track with a curt piano melody. The trilogy of singles complement each other well, collectively touching on elements of hip-hop, dance music and R&B.  It seems that the title Looking For Myself speaks to musical rather than personal growth, as Usher finds his identity in a pop-world undergoing a Euro-house makeover. His new experiments across the spectrum of pop music have so far been successful; he's solidified his spot in the pop pantheon for the foreseeable, post-Guetta future. [Via 2DopeBoyz]
