MMG boss Rick Ross and R&B veteran Usher recently teamed up for Usher's latest single "Lemme See" off Usher's upcoming LP Looking 4 Myself. The two music giants linked up once again, this time with Usher providing vocal support for the lead single off of Ross' long-awaited forthcoming album God Forgives, I Don’t. The product of their latest collaborative effort "Touch' N You" is a refined prototypical rap slow jam that combines slick verses with hook work courtesy of an established R&B singer.

While the track is not necessarily awe-inspiring, it does however scream marketability and success and will easily find its way on the radio and subsequently the music charts. The pairing of Usher, whose career appears to be back on the upswing, and Rick Ross, who along with his MMG comrades is arguably dominating and reshaping the landscape of rap music, makes for quite a formidable duo on this particular track. You can add versatile to one of Ross' many attributes as he dials back his signature gritty lyricism to create a solid slow jam.
