Listen: Usher Wants To 'Go Missin' With You
The Grammy winner releases a new Diplo collaboration for Valentine's Day.
Forget chocolate and flowers — Usher gifted his fans a different kind of Valentine's Day treat: a new song.

"You loved what I gave you last Valentine's #Climax," Usher wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "So here is 'Special delivery from the cloud' Happy Valentine's Day!"
"Baby aint nobody gotta know/ Go missin’," he sings (see full lyrics at DirectLyrics). "I’mma take a key for sure turn her up/ You can follow me right out that back door."
Since dropping his seventh studio album, Looking 4 Myself, last June, Usher has not talked about a hitting the record studio for a new release. But after "Go Missin'" popped up on Soundcloud, Diplo suggested it may be a small slice of a "much" bigger pie.
"Big up everyone who digs the new
@UsherRaymondIV 'gone missing,'" Diplo tweeted early Friday. "we have so much more."
"The one thing that I hope is to come into this show and be able to score an incredible entertainer that people will talk about for years and years and track it back," Usher told CNN of his new gig. "I am kind of a living example of that. I started on Star Search, and my career kind of launched from there."
