Usher: ‘Climax’ Is Not About Sex

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.”
