    Didn't see a thread on this. Well considering this might be his last single from the 7X Platinum "Confessions". I don't like it at all. It's a good song no doubt, but the video :-?. And aiming for a fast song he had much better choices "Red Light", "Throwback" (ect). I understand he wanted to do something a lil uptempo this time around, but I dont think this was the choice. This might be his 1st single to miss the top spot on the billboards (Hopefully cuz it should have never been released). I understand that it was a part of his 30 minute movie music video, but not single potential. Of course it will go top 10 because it's Usher, but enough is enough. I think he's ane eeeediot for not releasing either "Do It To Me", "That's What It's Made For" (which might not be too radio frendly IMO) Or "Can U Handle It" Which are hands down the best tracks on the album.

    I think that this is the strongest single he's brought out from Confessions!I know he gets a lot of criticism on UKMIX for his ego and things like that,but I really have to give him his props on this one.It's great actually

    Just finish watching the video. It kinda reminds me of "you dont have to call" and "Criminal".. Usher looks like a R&B Michael Jackson. :-? I love Usher he can dance, make some dam hit music and sing. And also fine...sometimes, lol. I dont know what to say about Usher..he imitates Michael Jackson too much but then again he still looks dam good doing it so....But anyway the song is a great song..love it!!!

    It's an okay song... better than any other Confessions single (except Burn), but I prefer his older stuff to this.

    I personally don't like it. In fact, I think it's the worst single he released over the past few years. (well, except U-turn )

    I think it's just bog standard boring mundane R&B, there's nothing new or exciting about it at all.

    I don't like this song, either, not seen the video yet though.

    Wasn't "Red Light" the b-side to "Yeah!"?

    I do like Throwback mainly because of the great beat by Just Blaze.

    'Throwback' is the standout track on the album. He's mad if he doesn't release that!
    This is an alright song, but nothing special!

    song is good, however 'Throwback', 'Simple Things' and also 'Superstar', 'Bad Girl' are the highlights of the album. Those are the best songs left from the album.

    It should give a Top 15 hit in the UK if it is released

    I like this song, but no doubt it will be overplayed and his arrogance will shine through and make me dislike him all over again...

    My fave from the album. I'd love to see 'Whatever I Want' to be a single though, but that wont happen!

    Throwback should be the next single too!

    from the first time i listened to the album, this was the song i skipped over the most, it's just not appealing.

    Though..there is a remix out there over the beat of nina sky's "turnin' me on" which makes it a lil' better.

    Nonetheless, i'm still a diehard usher fan!

    ^^ Maybe because his last two singles from the album were ballads? I think throwback will be a single. even if its like Us only or whatever

    ^^^
    I think he allready working on his next album. so the 20 min video is the last. and it's too late for throwback they done playing that @ the us radio so it's a bit too late he should've brought it out with burn showing 2 sides of the break up story

    Dammit I like this!
    My guess is that it wil do well on radio, and the video, although slightly boring, is getting more than its fair share of play. This will be another top 10, maybe 5.


    Although I swear I've heard it before somewhere...is that just me? no... Any dust? No?

    I hated this song when I got the album. I used to always skip this song. Thanks to radio, now I actually love the song, they played the hell out of this song. It's kind of late for him to put this out in the States because the song is already played out.

    This is also now one of my favorites.
    I hated on him I can't lie I did, but then I said to myself. If my 4th album sold 13 million copies in a world like today. W/all the bootlegging going on. My ass would be cocky as hell too.

    I think Throwback is the next single. Somone was talking about it on the Janet Jackson messageboard.

    Damn skippy!

    I like "Caught Up" fine, but he shoulda released 'Throwback (Remix)' w/ Jadakiss like he was goin to.
