New Music: Usher f/ Ciara – ‘Hot Tottie (Remix)’

Polow Da Don reaches into the vault and releases a previously unheard version of Usher’s “Hot Tottie” featuring Ciara. The album edit, which is included on Ursh’s Versus album, features Jay-Z and vocals from songwriter Ester Dean. You may recall that when the original tracklisting surfaced, Ciara’s name was also attached to the song, but she was absent from the finished product. A year later, Polow lets us hear CiCi’s “remix,” which features her backing vocals and a new verse. Which version do you prefer?

    …I’ll prefer any version over Ester Dean’s whining ass vocals! plus a major side-eye towards Polow’s fat grizzly behind for not releasing this originally…

    I was never really a fan of the song but this is not bad at all. All this version needed was Jay-Z’s verse which was really the highlight of the song

    That is not the remix, It is the orginal version that was supposed to be on his album with the jayz verse!

    @Trey, i honestly feel they cut this version cuz erything that was goin on wit cici during the time with her music. but i highly doubt cici wada made the song any bigger. it was a smash witout a video.

    Dave Reply:

    @meme, Yes, she would’ve. Because Ciara & Usher are 2 big names when it comes to entertainment, & both of their fan-bases we’re loving for them 2 to work together. Blue, Ciara was doing great with “Ride” & the songs off her mixtape she was releasing, if was giving her a nice buzz. Plus, she would’ve smashed a video & some performances. Let’s not be shady. Ciara is big with the right team. That’s all it is. The talent & everything else is there.

    @meme, i agree it is messed up but i believe Ciara will be out for heads this time around and make her comeback. She is at new label (rumored to be with Epic by L. A. Reid) so hopefully she can deliever her best this time around.

    This should have been the original version. Usher & Ciara make the perfect combo…they should’ve used this for the single and promoted it, and a month later put out the “Hot Toddy (feat. Jay-Z)” appropriately titled “Hot Toddy (Remix) feat. Jay-Z”…a more logically, and fan appreciated suggestion :) Either way, I’ll be downloading this because this is something new!

    just saying there is absolutly NO ESTER DEAN vocals on hot toddy, they’re from V a singer that made a song with Timothy Bloom recently… Ester “just” wrote the song…

  35. An0thrDream

    Ciara shouldve been on the album cut, this shouldve been finalized with ciara AND jay z on it and the song/video woulda been epic!!!

    [Reply]

  36. JNash

    ciara makes this track so much hotter, the blending of both their voices brings some sexyness to it…..they defo should of kept ci on the orginal, hmmm industry politics??

    [Reply]

  37. thecool

    This is the BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I still think Polow (or greasy neck as yall r calling him) only released this so he could get back in the good terms with my Wife. He still shady.
