USHER featuring A$AP ROCKY - 'Hot Thing'
Usher benefits from A$AP's attitude
Never liked Usher, ‘cos he’s mushy. Dig ASAP, ‘cos he’s weird. Admire The Neptunes (on production duties here), ‘cos who doesn’t? ALL THREE ON ONE SONG: Big. Pharrel’s rapid squelch and Rocky’s rap cameo about “[i]GQ[/i]” and “[i]Nicki Minaj[/i]” inject some pleasing naaaaaastiness into the ickyness of Usher’s vox.
