New Music: Usher f/ Pharrell – ‘Twisted’ [Snippet]

Pharrell and Usher

Usher brings the funk on “Twisted,” his new collaboration with Pharrell off his upcoming album Looking 4 Myself, due June 12.

“‘Twisted’ is more of a nostalgic record, so when you think about the classic R&B record, we managed a way to modernize it, even though that’s very relevant,” the R&B crooner told MTV News. “You hear records like Cee Lo, you hear Bruno Mars and also Andre 3000, and that sound is very relevant in this time. So this was kind of our way to tie it all together and give you something different that you probably wouldn’t normally get from me.”

Listen to a snippet of the song, which was taken from Usher’s album listening event.

    Sounds horrible, maybe it’s cus it sounds live, maybe the album version will be better. Dedication to my ex is much better than this, I love that song. If this is a single, it’ll prob achieve moderate success internationally.. Dedication to my ex is better, and it reached the top ten in uk and Australia, but flopped in the us
