What's the story?
"SCREAM" is the second single from the seventh studio album by Usher -- still one of the hottest R&B vocalists around. With an assist from pop-producing powerhouse Max Martin, Usher again sings about well-covered territory: romance. However, he takes the intensity up a step, getting decidedly more graphic without launching into full-fledged explicit territory.
Is it any good?
