After turning Jennifer Hudson into a dancefloor diva and Nicki Minaj into a singer, David Guetta doesn’t have to do a darn thing to Usher on “Without You”. On the duo’s Nothing But The Beat track, the R&B crooner (and his beautiful falsetto) pours his heart out while Guetta takes care of the beats. Listen below.
David Guetta feat. Usher – “Without You”
“I won’t run, I won’t fly, I will never make it by without you,” sings Usher. “I can’t rest, I can’t fight, all I need is you and I, without you.”
Simple lyrics floating over serene-turned-playful synthesizers, and Usher sounding genuinely plighted by the idea of living without his love. It’s not the most extraordinary production, but it works.
