<P>With nine #1s, <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/usher/artist.jhtml">Usher</a> is easily one of the most reliable hitmakers in the game, and he may have just found his next smash hit. The R&B superstar released his latest single, "<a href="http://buzzworthy.mtv.com/2012/04/26/usher-scream/">Scream</a>," on Thursday (April 26), and it has chart-topper written all over it.
</P><P>
</P><P>The Max Martin-produced banger finds Usher in familiar territory, singing the virtues of living for the moment — just as he did on 2010's "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," which was also helmed by Martin. With a pounding beat and a massive, swelling hook, the song returns Usher to the club after his recent foray into slow-jam territory with <a href="/news/articles/1682000/climax-usher-diplo.jhtml">"Climax,"</a> the Diplo-produced first single from his forthcoming <i>Looking for Myself.</i>
</P><P>
</P><P>"I see you over there, so hypnotic Thinking 'bout what I do to that body/ I get you like ooh baby baby," Ush sings. "Got no drink in my hand/ But I'm wasted/ Getting drunk off the thought of you naked/ I get you like ooh baby baby."

</P><P>In addition to his own new album, Usher also recently hit the studio with <a href="/news/articles/1683865/david-guetta-usher.jhtml">David Guetta to record a follow-up</a> to their hugely successful collaboration "Without You." Usher made a surprise appearance during Guetta's set at Coachella on April 14.
</P><P>
</P><P>"These are really big records that we're working on right now," Guetta told <i>The Hollywood Reporter</i> of his new track with Ush. "It's really crazy."

</P><P><a href="/news/articles/1682140/usher-looking-for-myself.jhtml"><i> Looking for Myself </i> is set for release on June 12</a> and is expected to be released in both standard and deluxe editions. The album is Usher's follow-up to his 2010 smash <i>Raymond v. Raymond,</i> which produced the massive singles "OMG" and "There Goes My Baby."
</P><P>
</P><P>For his new record, Usher returned to work with many of his <i>Raymond</i> collaborators, including Rico Love and Jim Jonsin, as well as Diplo, Martin and Salaam Remi, who is best known for his work with Nas and the late Amy Winehouse.
