Usher – No Limit ft. Young Thug Review
Coming back to releasing something credible after a good break of a few months, Usher has come back with the release of his upcoming new single titled No Limit, featuring the vocals and presence of fellow American rapper Young Thug.
Usher is a very dependable name in the R&B and Soul – Hip Hop scene. Delivering music that is not only radio material but also sticks in the head. Usher’s vibe force you to move around your groove all ways.
Until previously, Usher had released his last studio album Looking 4 Myself in 2012. Since then, the artist has released songs here n there from part of his UR Experience world tour. Amidst the absence of an album, the artist released songs like Chains in October 2015 as well as Crash in June of 2016.
The artist had long been teasing about his upcoming eight studio album but only recently announced about it officially by releasing the cover art for it. The album will be titled Flawed. No limit will be a part of the upcoming album.
Written by Usher himself, and a bunch of other people, while produced by Brandon “B.A.M.” Hodge and Christopher Perry the song gives reference to Master P’s legendary song, “Make ‘Em Say Uhh”, from his 1997 No Limit Records release Ghetto D singing, “Make you say uh, no limit / Got that Master P, no limit baby”
The duo’s collaboration brings in new life to the song, and delivers Usher’s ‘still can do ability’ to dish out songs which are smooth flowing and provide a decent R&B Soul vibe. Ideal for the radio listener, and somehow also club goers.
The vocal’s provide an expression of smooth flowing Drake rap that dive into Ty Dolla $ign-sound-alike vocal effects on the chorus
No limit- is a very well balanced track, having some strong and deep vocals of Usher, while transitioning into the energizing and entertaining high pitched verse of Thug’s.
A music video was released on August 8, 2016 on Usher’s vevo account on YouTube. The video features both usher and Young showing off some excellent Choreographed moves over a plain white backdrop. It also has an all-male dance group in the background, which is a change from the usual objectification of women.
