Usher ignites the club on the Pharrell-produced “Hot Thing” off his seventh album Looking 4 Myself, due June 12. A$AP Rocky comes through with a cool verse, name checking Christian Louboutin, Murciélago, and Nicki Minaj.
“I really wanted to create something that I felt would work in both our worlds, a fun record that would be a little bit irresponsible,” the R&B superstar told MTV News. “You gotta just let it go. No apologies, fuck it.”
The song was originally recorded by Pharrell’s i am OTHER artist Maxine Ashley, with a feature from Lil Wayne.
In addition to A$AP, other guests on Myself include Rick Ross (“Lemme See”), Pharrell (“Twisted”), and Luke Steele on the title track.
