Song Meaning and Background of Yeah by Usher


Yeah by Usher is a song about going to the club, meeting someone and getting into a romantic relationship. It features a beat that sounds like it is being played in the club and lyrics about drinking, smoking and partying. The song also talks about having good times with friends. It has become a dance anthem for many people and is still played at clubs today. It has also been featured in a few movies and TV shows, including Hitch and The Hangover.


The song was released in January 2004 as the first single from Usher's Confessions album. It was written by Usher, Sean Garrett, Patrick J. Que Smith, Ludacris and LRoc and was produced by Lil Jon. The song is an R&B and crunk record. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 and became a number-one hit in 30 countries worldwide.


In the music video for the song, Usher performs a series of choreographed moves in the club. He is accompanied by male dancers. The camera switches between scenes of him dancing in the club and shots of blue lasers. Ludacris is also seen performing his verse, and the scene with him dancing alternates between the club and the laser shot.


The beat on the song is hard and infectious, and it makes the listener want to dance. The beat is a perfect fit for Usher's voice, and it gives the song its club feel. The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "come and get me," which implies that Usher is ready to take a chance in the club.


Before the release of the song, there was a bit of controversy regarding it. Usher wanted to release a different song as the lead single for the album, but his producer Lil Jon did not want to let it go through. Lil Jon is an established DJ, and he decided to leak the song to DJs around Christmas time. This allowed the record to get thousands of radio plays with no label involvement. This gave the song a huge boost in popularity before it was even officially released. It ended up being the lead single for the album, and it helped propel the album to the top of the charts.


The song was a major success and has been featured in several TV shows, films and video games. It is one of Usher's most famous songs and a defining track from the 2000s. It was a top-ten hit in the United States and Europe, and it was a number-one hit in Canada. The song has won several awards, including a Grammy. It is also a cult classic and has been referenced in numerous memes over the years. It is considered to be one of the best R&B songs of all time. It is a must-listen for any music fan.


Lyrics of Yeah by Usher


[Usher (Lil Jon):]

Peace up, A-Town down

Yeah, yeah! Okay, okay!

Usher (Usher, Usher, Usher, Usher)

Lil Jon

Let's go!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Let's go!

 

I was up in the club with my homies

Tryna get a lil' V-I

Keep it down on the low-key (Low-key)

'Cause you know how it feels (Hey!)

I seen shorty, she was checkin' up on me

From the game she was spitting in my ear

You would think that she know me (Know me)

I decided to chill (Okay!)

Conversation got heavy (Hey!)

She had me feeling like she's ready to blow (Watch out!)

Oh! (Watch out)

She's saying, "Come get me" (Come get me)

So I got up and followed her to the floor

She said, "Baby, let's go"

When I told her (Let's go!), I said

 

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Shawty got down low, she said, "come and get me"

(Yeah!) Yeah!

I got so caught up, I forgot she told me

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Her and my girl, they used to be the best of homies

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Next thing I knew, she was all up on me, screaming

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

 

So she's all up in my head now, got me thinking

That it might be a good idea to take her with me

'Cause she's ready to leave (Ready to leave now) (Let's go!)

And I got to keep it real now

'Cause on a one to ten, she's a certified twenty

But that just ain't me (Hey!)

'Cause I don't know, if I take that chance

Just where's it gonna lead?

But what I do know is the way she dance

Make shorty alright with me

The way she get low

I'm like, yeah, just work that out for me

She asks for one more dance, and I'm like, yeah

How the hell am I supposed to leave?

(Let's go, bring the beat back!) And I say

 

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Shawty got down low, she said, "come and get me"

(Yeah!) Yeah!

I got so caught up, I forgot she told me

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Her and my girl, they used to be the best of homies

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Next thing I knew, she was all up on me, screaming

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

(Hey! Hey! Luda!)

 

[Ludacris (Lil Jon):]

Watch out, my outfit's ridiculous

In the club, looking so conspicuous

And these women all on the prowl

If you hold the head steady, I'ma milk the cow (Yeah!)

And forget about game, I'ma spit the truth (What?)

I won't stop 'til I get 'em in their birthday suit (Yeah!)

So gimme the rhythm and it'll be off with their clothes

Then bend over to the front, and touch your toes

I left the Jag and I took the Rolls

If they ain't cutting, then I put 'em on foot patrol (Let's go!)

How you like me now?

When my pinky's valued over three hundred thousand

Let's drink, you the one to please (Yeah!)

Ludacris fill cups like double Ds (Yeah!)

Me and Ursh' once more, and we leaves 'em dead

We want a lady in the street, but a freak in the bed, that say

 

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Shawty got down low, she said, "come and get me"

(Yeah!) Yeah!

I got so caught up, I forgot she told me

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Her and my girl, they used to be the best of homies

(Yeah!) Yeah!

Next thing I knew, she was all up on me, screaming

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

Yeah (Yeah!) yeah (Yeah!) yeah, yeah!

Take that, rewind it back

Lil Jon got the beat that make your booty go (Clap)
