Haven't assimilated all of Usher's Looking 4 Myself? (There's a lot to process.) Too bad; there's even more to listen to by Usher this week. And most of it's rather good.
COVER, "PUMPED UP KICKS"
In case Looking 4 Myself's musical tangents weren't enough proof, Radio 1's Live Lounge series has now given us tangible proof that Usher is indeed in that stage of his musical discovery where he's getting really, really excited about
that one Foster the People song. He also plays bass. Who knew?
NEW TRACK, "2ND ROUND"
It doesn't matter how many people Diplo gives his tracks to in 2012; any collaboration with Usher is still going to come with expectations. Their second collaboration, "2nd Round," alas, is no "Climax." But it's enough for today, Diplo doing the '00s-throwback thing while Usher offers up a second-night stand. Pair it with "I Care 4 U," maybe.
