ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Usher’s Lemme See, his new single off Looking for Myself, is drawing fans and critics praise today. In Lemme See aka Let Me See, Usher with the help of Rick Ross heats up powerful soaring vocals and strong lyrics. A recent performance of the song on Off-Broadway, as well, drew strong praise from New York theatre news critics.
In Lemme See, Usher teams up with Jim Jonsin for production. The song paired Usher’s writing skills with Eric Bellinger, and Lundon “Da Bridge” Knighten. This week, Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club debuted the single. Following his recent success with Climax, Usher teams up with Rick Ross.
But in one notable lyric, Ross references the Trayvon Martin controversy. “Chanel hoodie on, looking like Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman don’t want it” Ross states.
Usher also sings on the track “You’ve been saying all night long that you couldn’t wait to get me all alone. What you gon’ do .. Don’t talk about it, be about it. Let me see.”
Rolling Stone reports that a recent performance of Off-Broadway’s “Fuerza Bruta” featured Lemme See. During that single’s performance, Usher boasted “acrobats raced along a silver curtain 30 feet above the ground”, Rolling Stone tells news.
Usher has previously told news that this album is about taking risks. Of Climax, Usher said to news that “If you take no risk, you stand to gain nothing in life. Dare to be different. I don’t look like you, I don’t walk like you, I don’t dance like you, I don’t move like you or talk like you.” He added “That doesn’t make me odd, that makes me who I am. I want people to feel that essence of growth, this album is very consistent in the aspect of being eclectic.”
