Usher's Comeback Single 'Good Kisser' is Totally Old School and We Can't Get Enough

'70s instrumentals, amorous lyrics, and his silky falsetto range.

Usher's new track, a comeback of sorts, is everything we hoped for  — and then some. We can't deny the success of his EDM collaborations over the past few years, but think he's at his best when he returns to his R&B roots.

The first single off of his upcoming album, "Good Kisser," isn't nearly as silly as it sounds. Instead, it's an infectious collision of funky '70s instrumentals, amorous lyrics, and his silky falsetto range with a sexy video to match. It's distinctly Usher, while boasting the soul of a Marvin Gaye classic and grooves of The 20/20 Experience-era Justin Timberlake. Of course we're feeling it.

Urrsherr knows his way around the Top 40 charts, and we envision this track side gliding to number one as summer heats up. His eighth studio album is slated to drop later this year and includes work with Pharrell and Diplo.
