Usher




“Crash” is a song by American singer Usher, recorded for his eighth studio album, Hard II Love. It was released by RCA on 10 June 2016, available for digital download and online streaming. The audio for the song was also released on his Vevo and YouTube accounts the same day. “Crash” is the follow-up single to “No Limit”, released the day before. Both singles are to appear on Usher’s eighth studio album, Hard II Love.

The song was written by Usher, Lee Stashenko, Carlos St. John, while production was handled by St. John and f a l l e n. The song was released as a second single to “No Limit”, from his upcoming album Flawed as the work succeeds his last set work from 2014, which consisted of “Good Kisser”, “She Came to Give It to You” and “I Don’t Mind” as singles from his then-titled album Flawed, rumored to be titled UR. Despite the world tour UR Experience culminating at the same time in support, the album was not released. Flawed arrives as his first release since 2012’s Looking 4 Myself, which dates four years back. In October 2015 however, Raymond released “Chains”, a song about social justice featuring the artist Nas and Bibi Bourelly.

“Crash” was available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon and online streaming services, Tidal, Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube. On 17 June 2016 Raymond uploaded the music video for “Crash” on his YouTube and Vevo account. The music video was directed by Christopher Sims. The video begins with Usher dressed all in black laying against a black background. In the video Usher performs an interpretive dance to the lyrics in both solo and in scenes occupanied by two male dancers. Through the video he is singing to a woman, portrayed by model Leslie Allen, in larger-than-life representation that is haunting his thoughts.
