Usher and Don Corleone Team Up On New Single “Pressure”




Usher taps dancehall power producer Don Corleone for his new single “Pressure.”

The link-up between the R&B singer and the producer was put together by producer Rico Love, according to Don Corleone. The two met for the first time at the famous AfterMaster Recording & Mastering Studios in Hollywood, CA. “I got a call from Rico Love (an American producer) one night asking me if I could come to a studio in Hollywood, California and be prepared to work,” Corleone said.

“I went to the studio and to my surprise, Usher was in the studio. So, Rico said let me play something for you and he played me this demo that he did,” the producer added. “It has only a few keys on it, so he then asked if I could make it fire with that dancehall sound. I made it on spot and it took me like five minutes to complete it.”

Don added that Usher loved what he heard and Rico Love then suggested that they include a female dancehall artist on the track. Corleone said he made it happen but can’t disclose the name of the female artist who will be on the track, but there are already some rumors that it’s dancehall newcomer Shenseea. “We recorded her the next day at Hitmaker Studio in Kingston… When Usher and Rico heard it, they both loved it,” he revealed.

Don Corleone is the first Jamaican based producer to produce a song for Usher which makes it a big achievement. Dancehall music has been reshaping the sound of mainstream pop and hip hop over the past two years and more established artists are now looking to Jamaica to get the authenticity of that sound. Justin Bieber, who was discovered by Usher, dabbled in dancehall for his last album, and we’ve seen artists like Drake, Rihanna, Tory Lanez, and Chris Brown all release dancehall influenced singles.

[Intro: Big Sean]
Uh-huh
I got everything to lose
Whoa, whoa
We did it, Finally Famous, nigga

[Hook: Big Sean]
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up (lights)
It’s time to light they ass up, light they ass up
They gon’ know that it’s us, they gon’ know that it’s us
They gon’ know that it’s us, light that shit up
[Verse 1: Big Sean]
Story of my life, the come up (grind)
My night doesn’t end ’til the sun up (grind)
Finger fucking the money
I do whatever to keep it coming (oh)
When I walk in the building they all give me stares
But I dare anybody to run up
And I ain’t satisfied until I’m chubby, lil’ bitch
And I got hundreds on my paper ’cause I studied, lil’ bitch
Come and be my understudy, lil’ bitch, I’m your boss, not your buddy
Matter of fact, don’t talk in or around me
Matter of fact, if you standing next to us then you lucky
Matter of fact, wash your hands before you touch me, you disgusting lil’ bitch
Always reppin’, but I’m hardly home
Sean Don, Perrion, Don Corleone
Hit the vroom vroom every single time the ‘Rari on
Riding around in Malibu tryin’ to see a Barbie home
Came up from that one bedroom-room, now we on
Hoes bustin’ dance moves harder than Omarion
Fur is so fresh, oh my God, it’s still shedding
Radio flow, ho, I’m trying to break records
Getting every single thing on my checklist
I should be at the top of your threat list
When I come through have the bottles and confetti
Bitch, we ready

[Hook: Big Sean]
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up (lights)
It’s time to light they ass up, light they ass up
They gon’ know that it’s us, they gon’ know that it’s us
They gon’ know that it’s us, light that shit up

[Verse 2: 2 Chainz]
Before I hit more than finessing
Might walk on the beach in Giuseppe’s
I think that my life is a blessin’
The girl that I’m with ego bigger than Precious
Before adolescence my development was arrested
Toss and turn in the bed restless
I’m glad that we made it back
Workin’ the back on Mercedes hatch
Straps with the gatorback
Faded black, take the pussy clip, don’t maniac
Take the pussy, never gave it back
Slap ’em with four types rings like an 80s cat
Looking for a great Dane, nightmares, Dana Dane
Changin’ lanes, smoking back to back, chain and chain
Fuck it till I get fatigue, major pain, woo
Swag like the NBA, I dunk and do a layup line (yeah)
Fuck a do not disturb, I need a bitch in here laced way up sign
Pay up time, I’m piped up in these streets
And if I put my jewelry on the light bill increase

[Hook: Big Sean]
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up
It’s time to light this shit up, light this shit up (lights)
It’s time to light they ass up, light they ass up
They gon’ know that it’s us, they gon’ know that it’s us
They gon’ know that it’s us, light that shit up
