Usher's 'Climax,' Produced By Diplo, Gets A Video

Usher released his latest music video for "Climax" today. In true Usher style, there's a lot of direct in-camera eye contact and almost inappropriate sex scenes. Unlike true Usher style, though, there is minimal dancing and an odd amount of violence.

What could only be considered a song purely about some pretty sensual sex and the emotionally messy aftermath, "Climax," produced by Diplo, receives a morbid interpretation in the video. A brooding Usher sits in a throwback Pontiac GTO starring into a Lloyd Wright-style house in the woods. Flashes of sex scenes, gunshots and a game of chicken on a dirt road are interspersed with a scruffy-faced Usher singing into the camera.

Though the video's story is a little muddled, it is difficult to look away from Usher when he sings so passionately. Just pretend his vocals are for you.
