P Diddy feat Usher : I Need A Girl

...may be the best R&B chorus of the year so far, but, Christ, those verses...

Problem. You’re P.Diddy. You’re internationally known on the microphone, and you never spend the night alone (you’ve got a few girls that people want to bone), but you really need a wife at home. You had a girl you would’ve died for, didn’t appreciate her so made her cry. She was more than your girl - you were, apparently, like brothers. Now most girls be confusin’ you. Chicks don’t romance you, don’t tickle your fancy. You want a girl that can raise you a family. What do you do? Yes, almost unbelievably, you write all that down and make a song out of it. Usher’s contribution may be the best R&B chorus of the year so far, but, Christ, those verses…
