Mike Coppola/Getty Images for Little Kids RockUsher teamed up with his Atlanta fam, Lil Jon and Ludacris, for his new single, “SexBeat.”
Lil Jon opens the sexy slow jam song, while Ludacris executed the first verse with his provocative wordplay, followed by Usher’s sweetness. Lil Jon first teased the song during his Instagram Live battler with T-Pain last weekend, revealing it was recorded almost two years ago.
Complex reported Usher talked about the record and his “undeniable” connection that led to their 2004 hits “Yeah!” and “Lovers and Friends” during an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe.
“It’s undeniable. That’s the one thing you can say about it. When Usher, Jon, and Luda come together it’s always amazing. It allows us to stay connected to our core like us three together,” Usher said of the track.
He went on: “No matter what Jon is doing, no matter where Ludacris is, no matter who I am, or where I’m going, or what type of music I’m introducing, when we come together, we go back to the center, like the orbit of who we all are as artists at our best.”
“Usher, Jon, and Luda had to do it again,” Usher added. “It’s time.”
