Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris — who previously teamed up for the 2004 hit song “Yeah!” – have reunited for a new slow jam “SexBeat.”
The track opens with Lil Jon setting the mood and Ludacris rapping about his exploits in the bedroom. Then Usher croons: “Sex beat/When I get in that room and the bass go boom/Something about the way it make me move.”
“When Usher, Jon and Luda come together it’s always amazing,” Usher tells Beats 1’s Zane Lowe.
“No matter what Jon is doing, no matter where Ludacris is, no matter who I am, or where I’m going, or what type of music I’m introducing, when we come together, we go back to the center, like the orbit of who we all are as artists at our best. Usher, Jon and Luda had to do it again. You know? It’s time.”
Usher added: “We, by the way, have been sitting on this song for about two years. So as great as that one song is, please know that two years ago this record was done.”
