In 2004, Usher, Lil Jon, and Ludacris joined forces for the smash singles “Yeah!” and “Lovers and Friends.”
Now, sixteen years later, the trio reunite for the sexy collaboration “SexBeat,” a bass-heavy bedroom banger, produced by Jermaine Dupri.
“SexBeat” launches raunchy verse from Ludacris, before transitioning to sultry and sex-drenched vocals from Usher. “SexBeat, put this on and watch us take it as far as you let me,” he sings, while Lil Jon adds his crunk ad-libs.
The new release is picking up on social media with the support of the #SexBeatChallenge, which spotlights social influencers showing off their sexy moves on Instagram and TikTok.
The trio is slated to perform together at the Lovers & Friends Festival, which has been rescheduled for Aug. 8 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif.
“SexBeat” follows Usher’s Ella Mai-assisted single “Don’t Waste My Time,” which debuted a video last month. He is now readying a new album, his first since 2016’s Hard II Love, which may feature the recently-teased “Confessions Part III.”
