Two decades into a career of consistent hits, Usher explores and expands on his seventh studio album. Dabbling in various trends, from dubstep ("I Care for U") to trance pop (Swedish House Mafia-produced "Euphoria" and "Numb"), Usher is at his finest when he sticks to his signature R&B pop. His falsetto flies high on the sexy ballad "Dive" and lead single "Climax," possibly his best song to date. The Neptunes help boogie the blues away on retro soul jam "Twisted" featuring Pharrell. Backed by dreamy synths, "What Happened to U" captures the heartthrob's dilemma of having it all—"money, clothes, fancy cars/ big ol' cribs, platinum on the walls/ seven Grammys, sold out concerts, damn, I've been workin' hard"—yet longing for that special someone to share in his success.
