THE 12 DAYS OF DIPLO: Day 8

By  |  0 Comments

Arguably the sexiest, most sensual song in Diplo’s repertoire (even though the song lyrics find a happy medium between overt sexuality and the difficulty in sustaining a relationship), Usher’s “Climax”, 2012, was both produced and co-written by our Dance Floor King and, in turn, gave us the greatest Usher jam to date.

“Climax” took Usher out of the musical stereotype so many of us had pigeonholed him into and brought futuristic-urban-pop to the forefront. That urgent middle-8! That chorus! And that final showdown? PHWOAR. Usher had never sounded better than he did on “Climax”, an electro slow-jam that remains his greatest achievement.

Check out the original “Climax” below, and right underneath that you can also check out the killer Diplo & Flosstradamus remix of the tune.
