A few hours ago, Diplo premiered his surprise collaboration with Usher called “Climax,” a single from Usher’s new album just in time for Valentine’s Day. We’ve seen plenty of pictures of the two working in the studio together, and it’s been known that Pharrell has also been part of the group’s productions. Diplo has shown us multiple times that he can accommodate for all types of music, and this is just another example. The song is smooth from start to finish, while Usher’s sentimental lyrics accompany the soft synths and basslines. Just when you think some kind of energetic break is about to come in, the mood goes right back to sexy. Pitchfork has already named it the “Best New Track.” This is something you will probably listen to in bed at some point, and there’s no real complaints there.
