On his latest single, "Lemme See," Usher is doing what he does best: imagining all the ways he wants to get it on with his lady.

Usher's bravado is out in full with him singing, "She says she wanna take her skirt off/Be my guest/I decided to take my shirt off/And show my chest/And we been sipping on that merlot/So you know what's next." And, as if we didn't know what was next, he adds, "Working intermissions, switching positions/We so expensive, oh."

If fans think it couldn't get any hotter on the Jim Jonsin and Mr. Morris-produced track, Usher invited his pal and Hottest MC Rick Ross to heat things up even more.

"Well, me and Rick Ross had been talking about working together solo," he told MTV News about the song. "We had actually done something before with 'So Sick and Tired' with DJ Khaled, but this was one of those ones it needed a boss on it."

From there, Ursher hit the studio with the MC and came up with a sensual track about the art of seducing. He added, "Ricky Rozay came through and put that thing down. It was good."

Usher previewed Looking For Myself, which drops June 12, during a one-night performance as the lead in the off-Broadway show "Fuerza Bruta." The album's second single, "Scream," dropped last week.

"This album has many different views and many different perspectives," Usher said of how the songs he's released so far reflect the album. "Whereas the first song was a little bit more artistic and a little bit more soulful, and it has done everything, it probably exceeded my expectations, I mean, from the moment I was able to give it away. I was able to kind of be reintroduced in a way musically, and thank you to [producer] Diplo, but 'Scream' is really like the next step. It's just in time for summer and the type of experience that I want people to get out of the album."
