Usher : U Remind Me

...he has no idea about the ladies...

Usher : U Remind Me

Relationship counselling for Mr Usher! The 22-year-old might

be a film star, Grammy nominee

and the proud owner of a chest that could cut diamonds, but Christ, he has no idea about the ladies. "Gotta let you go!" he whickers over the pleasing

calypso inflections of this R&B relationship panic, informing

some poor girl that they've

got no future together because

she resembles a woman he once knew. A woman who was - somewhat agriculturally - "sexin' everyone but me". Hardly romantic catnip, but then such woeful ineptitude is just the

thing to get impressionable

female fans thinking they could - yes - change him. Too late. He might be classy, but that just means his baggage comes in genuine calfskin. Victoria Segal
