Usher Performs “Scream” & “Climax” On SNL; Makes Us Do Neither


Usher took to SNL this weekend and performed 2 new songs "Scream" & "Climax" and although the titles were suggestive and wanting you to do them, and I did like "Scream" it did not make me want to do it.

Usher is hitting that level of being a veteran act but still stuck with the "ooh baby, baby" mentality he had with other hits. We love the breakdown of "Scream" but wonder where is the man who gave us "Confessions" and "Nice & Slow" about 10 years ago?


"Climax" to me was just to show off he still works out hard and has the big guns. It was slightly long. Although "Climax" is straight forward in it's title, he did not go the way of Brian McKnight wanting to show you how your you know what works.

Perhaps these songs were not meant for the male listener but doesn't Usher want us choosing those songs while with our ladies? "Climax" may make it there in time but I am not so sure about "Scream" this time.

What did U think Of Usher's performances? At least he sang live.-DocFB

  1. Usher is not truly taking advantage of the talents that he does have. The dancing with a million dancers, with thousands of shiney lights to please an easy audience, is getting old. Concentrate on being a musician, and not just a pop star.

  2. I’m female and he didn’t make me scream or even want to climax! Sorry, but his songs do nothing for me! Nor his performances anymore!

  3. WTF kind of review is that? It is the name of the songs, nothing more.
    Did you expect him to do a Do Me, Baby circa 80’s type performance?
