Edgier song by R&B star offers great vocals, generic sound.

This song is terrible! It is a puke-in-your-mouth kind of song that has terrible, sexual lyrics and is just one of those songs to just stay right away from. Heard the first half of it once, never think I'll listen to it again.

Gross...

I know this isn't the most disgusting song ever written, but I still think it is gross. I don't like the song itself, either. I especially hate the "naked" part, or should I say PARTS. Usher seems like an okay role model, though. PS: When he says ”Usher" in the song, it sounds like "oh s**t", lol. Also, there are some other steamy lyrics: "I tried to fight it, to fight it... But you're so magnetic, magnetic..." And, CSM, do you edit your reviews often? I could've sworn this was rated "on" for 13 and up once, but now it's rated "iffy"?

Revolves around $ex...

This song basically revolves around sex and having it. I wouldn't say it's a good song for under 12. I'd say it's ON for 13 and up and Iffy for 7-10. Eh, I guess it's fine for 11-12 though, but there are some kids who just like the instrumental of the song like the song itself, not the lyrics, like my 7year old brother. He doesn't even know the lyrics soo... yeah.

scream cd single

Families can talk about why Usher may have deviated from his standard not-too-mature approach to produce this sexier-than-normal track. Do artists need to resort to graphic sexual descriptions in order to interest people in their music? Why or why not? Does R&B tend to have sexier lyrics than other genres, such as country or pop? Why are there so many songs about sex?
