Usher Claims Another Top 20 Hit With Climax, Plus Video

Usher has scored another hit single on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart. His latest offering, “Climax,” rockets over 8 spots to reach no.18 this week.

A major feat for the Grammy Award winner, “Climax” becomes his 44th song to chart on the R&B/Hip Hop Songs tally.

“Climax” had reach no.28 in its second week, rocketing to no.18 in its third week Thursday.

As previously reported, the song leads Usher’s forthcoming seventh studio album. A follow up to “Raymond V Raymond,” the effort is due later this year.

In related news, a music video for the single was released Friday. Directed by Sam Pilling, the dramatic, highly-suspenseful and attention-gripping video was shot in Atlanta.
