Renowned Website Pitchfork gives Usher a good review for his latest song Little Freak Feat Nicki Minaj.
I got to admit that the More I hear this song the more I love it… Reading a professional review is also refreshing .This is why I decided to post this one.
You can hear the song on Usher’s official Website www.UsherNow.com
Usher is single again, and from the sound of things, he’s very, very into being single. But “Little Freak” isn’t some R. Kellyesque devotional hymn to sexual addiction. Rather, it’s Usher introducing a new wrinkle to that old “More Than Words” if-you-love-me-you’ll-fuck-me routine: If you love Usher, you’ll fuck her. “If you fuckin’ with me, really fuckin’ with me, you’ll let her put her hands in your pants, be my little freak,” he wails, sounding suavely desperate, or desperately suave. And as far as revenge-breakup fuck-songs go, it pushes into “Cry Me a River” territory for the same reason that “Cry Me a River” transcended: the gigantic, operatic backing track.
As on “Love in This Club”, Ush’s chiffon moan makes an ideal ornament to producer Polow Da Don’s widescreen thump. Here, Polow turns a Stevie Wonder sample into a monstrous swirl of orchestral exoticism, on some real “Kashmir” shit. Guest freak Nicki Minaj adds extra cackling libido: “I’m plotting on how I can take Cassie away from Diddy.” The whole towering mess makes a drunken 3 a.m. threesome sound like the most epic endeavor anyone could hope for– which, unless your life is way more interesting than mine, it probably is.
