Usher's Love in This Club

For romance without ankle bracelets, Usher's Love in This Club is as good as the summer offerings get. When Usher says love, he means the feeling you get around an attractive stranger after a few glasses of Champagne, and in case that's not clear, he moans, "Let's both get undressed right here/ Keep it up girl and I swear/ I'ma give it to you nonstop." There's just enough self-awareness to keep Love in This Club from sounding like R. Kelly, though it's probably not a song you'd play around your parents.
