Met wat hulp van Sean (Puff Daddy) Combs krijgt de muzikale loopbaan van Usher vorm met de release van zijn tweede album My Way in 1997. Daarvoor waren al enkele singles verschenen en het debuutalbum Usher.

In 1998 verschijnt de Amerikaan met You Make Me Wanna voor het eerst in de Top 40. Van het album Confessions komt de single Yeah! (met Ludacris en Lil’ John). Daarmee scoort Usher zijn negende hit in de Top 40 en zijn eerste nummer 1-notering.

Inmiddels heeft Usher 19 hits gescoord in de Top 40, waarvan DJ Got Us Falling In Love (2010, samen met Pitbull) de meest succesvolle was. Het album UR, dat voor 2014 gepland stond, wordt uitgesteld omdat Usher niet tevreden is met het resultaat.

In april bereikt Don't Look Back, de track die hij samen met Martin Garrix maakte, de Top 40.


Songtekst

It's like whatever I do
Ooh
Just can't get through to you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh
Whatever we said we left 'em all
Listen...

Now, now she loved me, shawty I loved her
Used to jump up in the maybach and roll out
Used to care, she used to share
The love that she used to give me can't be found
I lost my way, she said she'd stay
And lately I've been sleeping with a ghost
My stock is down and out, I used to be worth my weight in gold
That was before a great depression kicked in and rocked us
And that was before the hurricane came in and stopped us
I told you to leave, but you lied to me
When you said that, "baby no worries I promise to get us back".

I know sorries, just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliverated, I'm trying, I'm trying my boo,
But it's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains... hey.
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns gray,
and the water from the rain washes progress away.
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Why just leave me?
Just leave me be.
Just leave me.
Just leave me be.
Why you just leave me
just leave me be.
Why you just leave me
just leave me be, ooh.

She, she don't touch me, I don't touch her
We rarely even ever say a word.
I really want to give her everything she deserves
But the bad took away the good.
She thinks that I'm full of it, arguments, always pissed, man I'm tired
Every kiss that I missed, girl you know I'm trying.
You never believe when I say, and I never believe it when you say
I love you, and I shouldn't complain about it
I could take it like a man and walk about it
'Cause we will never be the same, ooh.
I've been standing in gas, and you have been the flame.

I know sorries just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliverated, I'm trying to get through
Got to move this mountain.
It's like moving mountains... hey
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns gray, and the water from the rain washes progress away
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Well baby why you just leave me?
Just leave me be.
Just leave me.
Just leave me be.
Why you just leave me.
Just leave me be.
Why you just leave me.
Just leave me be, ooh.

This must be a slow death that I'm traveling on,
Feels so wrong, I'm barely holdin' on.
See, no matter what I've gotta get it together baby, Yeah.

And these hills that I'm traveling on
She ain't showin' me love, I'm down on my luck.
Ooh, I'm done.. Oh

I know sorries just wouldn't do it
Her heart is obliberated, I'm trying, I'm trying my boo
But it's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains... hey.
But I keep climbing and hoping things would change
And the sky turns gray, and the water from the rain washes progress away
It's like moving mountains...
It's like moving mountains...
Well baby why you just leave me?
Just leave me be.
Just leave me.
Just leave me be.
Why you just leave me.
Just leave me be.
Why you just leave me.
Just leave me be, ooh.
