Ciara and Usher combined their R&B/dance/pop powers to record — what else? — a glossy dance track. Quelle surprise! We’re actually used to hearing heavier bass tracks from the hyper-diligent fashionista, but this possibly unfinished track indicates that she’ll provide some lighter moments on her oft-delayed Basic Instinct. (Now set to drop December 14… if we’re lucky.) Listen to “Turn It Up (Pucker Up)” below.
“I love it loud, can you turn it up?” asks Ciara as Usher provides an inoffensive, booty-adoring verse and some backing vocals on the chorus. We’re less than impressed by this fairly predictable club banger, especially compared to the other Basic Instinct tracks we’ve heard thus far.
