Like I said when the single hit the Internet earlier this month, Usher’s “OMG” has a Jock Jams feel (at least during the choruses) that was mostly excised from R&B in the mid-90s. The video, on the other hand, updates Usher to the 2000’s, as it has the best green screen technology 2003 has to offer, with Usher and Gumby, who guests on the track, dancing in rooms of lasers. Usher’s “Yeah” video just accused Usher’s “OMG” video of plagiarism and bad taste in collaborators. It’s a testament to Will.i.am’s black hole of talent that having Lil Jon on here would be a marked improvement.
Usher’s Raymond vs. Raymond is out today.
