Usher No Longer So 'Clueless'

    Remember that single Usher fist-bumped a bee and then released his latest single exclusively through boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios? Probably not, since you could only find these premium boxes at Wal-Mart, they weren't in large supply, the code didn't even work and nobody believed Usher would be party to such a comically misguided bit of product placement (it's the kind of partnership you can imagine that an executive at General Mills hit upon only because he saw an Usher poster in his daughter's room). Well lucky for us all that the songs crept up on the internet, as all things inevitably do, and you're more than welcome to listen to it further on below.

    How's it sound? Not bad, actually. The lack of drums, low pulse of the bass and sparse arrangement make for a song that's heavy on atmosphere and attitude. Usher's not as desperate as he probably should sound, given the lyrical content, he's a man who seems like he takes so much joy in making his music that this rapture overpowers his attempts to convey how cast off he is at this point, and the song is a little bare in places, sounding almost unfinished, but it's got an appealing touch of delicacy that makes it worth a listen.
