Ludacris Teams Up With David Guetta + Usher on ‘Rest of My Life’
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard something big from Ludacris. Though the rapper released a couple of music videos this summer, his last significant hit was a surprise appearance on the remix of country singer Jason Aldean‘s ‘Dirt Road Anthem.’ Now, Luda is back with a new album called ‘Ludaversal’ and a dance track featuring David Guetta and Usher.
‘Rest of My Life’ opens with earnest vocals from Usher before Ludacris enters with a typically humorous verse, rapping, “They say what don’t kill me can make me stronger / So two drinks a night should help me live longer.” He adds, “I’m stuck in this moment, free the hands of time / Cause I feel inner peace when I’m out of my mind.”
The song features the same kind of mid-tempo groove and dreamy vibe heard in Usher’s last collaboration with Guetta, ‘Without You.’ During the instrumental sections, jolting electronic effects add an aggressive energy that should have people on dance floors everywhere going crazy.
‘Ludaversal’ is targeted for a Spring 2013 release. It’s the follow-up to Luda’s 2010 album ‘Battle of the Sexes,’ which debuted at No. 1 and spawned the hits ‘How Low’ and ‘My Chick Bad’ with Nicki Minaj. The ‘Rest of My Life’ single hits iTunes Nov. 2.
Listen to the song below and take a peek at some behind-the-scenes footage from the recording session.
