Usher: ‘Climax’ Is Not About Sex

Usher

Usher may have the bedroom banging with his Diplo-produced single “Climax,” but he claims the song has nothing to do with sex.

“It’s odd that people view ‘Climax’ as a sexual song,” the R&B heartthrob told Ryan Cameron on Atlanta’s V-103. “It’s not. It’s not even about sex. It’s really about the ultimate experience or finale of an experience of love and life.”

He continued, “When you’re in a relationship and it’s kinda reached the climax of where it could go, you gotta let it go if you’re not gonna commit and that’s what the song’s about.”

Ursh does admit that the record has sexual undertones, but that was intentional. “That is the double entendre of how the music works,” he said. “It’s not about sex. It’s about an out-of-control experience, when a person has reached the peak of that experience.”

    @T, You beat me to it, lol.

    But yeah, any idiot can tell that this isn’t a sexual song. It would be really messed up if some stations refuse to play it based off of the name. Climax had a meaning way before people started associating it to mean “orgasm”. Ever read a book?

    Don’t judge a song by it’s title, unless it’s a Rihanna song! (see Birthday Cake, Cockiness (Love It), S&M, Skin)

    @coolio, why cant a black man just grow his natural hair without being told to cut it? but when a white man does it its considered okay? get out of that slave mentality.

    Clearly, those who thought the song was about sex, are dare I say F-ing stupid. Listen to the words of the song not just the beat because you’ll look like an ass everytime.

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover somebody that actually
    understands what they are discussing on the web.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you’re not more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
