Usher – Climax

Usher agonising over the inevitable end of a relationship with a stunning vocal backed by a superbly restrained Diplo production (full of squelches and beeps, stabs of bass, drums, piano and waves of synths that threaten to soar off but instead stop before starting again – somehow always failing to reach a climax).

It’s one of the greatest ever R&B ballads. And certainly one of the best songs of 2012.
