Usher’s “Scream”: Listen To The Full Song

Usher‘s full “Scream” single, from upcoming seventh album Looking For Myself, has surfaced. When the snippet popped up yesterday, we noted that the song follows a dance-pop formula you can hear when flipping to any pop station on the radio. And upon taking in Mr. Raymond’s latest in its entirety, our opinion hasn’t really changed. In fact, the opening synths are shamefully similar to those in Taio Cruz‘s 2010 summer jam “Dynamite”. Oh, well — if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, eh, Ush? Listen below.

Usher has consistently scored with upbeat dance jams over the past two years — think “OMG”, “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” and, most recently, his feature on David Guetta‘s “Without You”. And with previous offering “Climax” failing to, er, perform as well, we can probably expect more assembly-line dance floor fodder from the singer.

Still, switching up the beat and chords a bit wouldn’t hurt. The lyrics also sound like fairly standard fare for Usher’s club persona: “And I ain’t trying to fight it, to fight it / But you’re so magnetic, magnetic / Got one life, just live it, just live it / Now relax, sing it on your back.” Read the full “Scream” lyrics for more.

What do you think of Usher’s “Scream”? Does it have lots of bark, or is it more of a whisper?

    I don’t get why people insist on acting like Climax is a failure. It’s the #1 R&B song on Billboard and iTunes. How is that not good? No, it will not rush up the other charts like the generic pop tunes cause it’ s actually a great song that is slowly gaining more fans. What Usher needs to realize that Climax gets you Grammys, Scream won’t.

      Yeah, like Yaya Ktv said! Climax is doing great for a slow-burn R&B song, it’s already top 20 on the pop charts after only nine weeks. PLUS it’s been the number one R&B song in the country for a while now! This single (Scream), however, is too generic and will most likely flop… and to be honest I think it’s stupid to follow up his most unique single in years with this dance-pop crap…

        “Scream” will certainly NOT flop as the dance -pop numbers are eaten like cereal. It’s definitely a potential #1 hit, but it’s generic.

    Climax gets him Grammys, Scream gets him sales. Usher said hes being eclectic in this album, so hes going to his slow jams, going to his party mixes, trying something new and keeping the old. Artists today only center on one theme these days, Usher is talented enough that he can have a broad music base and still keep his music alive and fresh for all music lovers.
