This morning the video for Usher’s latest single, “Climax,” was released. Like the song itself, the video for “Climax” is sultry, dark, and soulful. It features Usher, unfettered and in a simple black shirt, singing directly to the camera while delivering an emotional performance of the song.
The video features flashbacks to more intimate times with a former partner and rueful shots of Usher sitting in a parked car outside her home while she moves on with a new man.
The single “Climax” is from Usher’s new, yet to be named album that is expected to drop this spring. The single marks his first collaboration with producer Diplo, who has previously worked with Beyonce, M.I.A., Chris Brown, and Snoop Dogg.
