The 'U Got It Bad' star tells Capitalfm.com that his latest single is an "expression of his creativity".
Usher has confessed that his new single 'Climax' is not a sexual song and represents his "forward thinking in music".
The 'Pop Ya Collar' star told Capitalfm.com that the track is the first representation of a world he is trying to create which fuses dance and soul.
He said: "'Climax' was an expression of my forward thinking in music. Working with Diplo – whom I was very fond of and loved what he had done with music – I felt that he would understand the interpretation.
"'Climax' was that first record that I really felt represented this very new experience for me where I'm tying in a dance world with a very soulful experience."
The American R&B star also admitted he was surprised that female fans are having trouble hitting the high notes he does in the track and the song is an "expression" of his creativity in music.
He added: "I was told that the ladies are having problems singing it and I'm like 'nah – it can't be'. But it's a classic falsetto and a classic topic.
"Some people may assume that it's more sexual than anything –it's not. It's about living life to the fullest and when you reach that point where you either got to commit or let it go. It is somewhat of a relationship record and an expression of my creativity."
The 'OMG' star also revealed that his performance in the music video for the song resulted in him being offered the role of Sugar Ray Leonard in a new boxing biopic film.
