Forget chocolate and flowers — Usher gifted his fans a different kind of Valentine's Day treat: a new song.

On the heels of Justin Timberlake dropping his "Suit & Tie" music video, the Grammy-winning R&B artist also capitalized on the Hallmark holiday by dropping his brand-new collaboration with DJ-producer Diplo.

"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!"

The R&B-meets-electronica track marks the first time the duo has teamed up since the Grammy Award-winning "Climax," which was released last February. Laying his signature, sultry falsetto over Diplo's bass-heavy beat, Usher croons about enticing a woman to come home with him.

"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."

Whether or not he has another album in the works, Usher has plenty on his plate. Along with fellow newbie Shakira, the "Scream" singer joins veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine the coaching panel for the fourth season of The Voice, taking Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green's seats when the singing competition show returns on March 25.

"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."
