Usher Returns With “No Limit” Featuring Young Thug: Listen

Usher‘s new single features Young Thug, which would be a bigger deal if the ATLien wasn’t already given a major feature on Kanye’s TLOP. But still, one of R&B’s biggest crossover stars, the man who shepherded Justin Bieber through the system, has now put his weight behind one of the oddest, most exciting dudes in rap and that’s a good thing.

But how’s the song? Usher rides a cloudy and rubbery beat from producers Brandon “B.A.M.” Hodge and Christopher Perry, unloading all kinds of references to the No Limit glory days (“Make ya say uhh…I see murder that…yeah that ghetto D, girl”). Thug joins the jam with his own sensitive, helium-voiced verse.

This is Usher’s first new material since his Nas and Bibi Bourelly collab last fall. It premiered as a Tidal exclusive today — hear it below, or only preview it if the rip vanishes.
