Yuna Channels Sade & Aaliyah On Usher Collaboration “Crush”: Listen

Fresh off the release off her DJ Premier-produced single “Places To Go,” pop musician Yuna links up with Usher on the sexy “Crush.” The singer trades in her buoyant pop rhythms for a slice of quiet storm that further hints at her transition into the R&B realm. And after a long dip in the EDM pool, here Usher reaffirms his status as king of the sexy slow jam.

“Jet black Mercedes, built in the ’70s, classic like you and me,” the Malaysian singer’s languid vocals coo over a mellow, drum-laden beat that recalls both Aaliyah and Sade‘s ’90s offerings.

The single is the latest offering off Yuna’s upcoming LP, Chapters, which is out May 20. Hear it below.
