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
