If you’ve ever wondered what a Black Coffe and Usher collaboration would sound like, you no longer need to. The South African DJ-producer and R&B veteran have teamed up to deliver a new song to soundtrack dancefloor romance, “LaLaLa”, while also establishing how timeless party songs can be.
The EDM baseline Black Coffee produces for “LaLaLa” transport listeners to the early 2010s when Usher exclaimed, “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love”. With the beat already evoking a sweeping nostalgia, Usher adds his sultry vocals, singing “You give me reason to light up the place/ You keep me going, keep me rolling, go without the breaks/ Bring back your love again”. The pining lyrics reveal a romantic sentiment at the core of the dancefloor-ready beat but it also seems a throwback to a time when you heard an Usher song and instantly imaged the possible dance moves he’d perform to the beat should the music video get released.
