City Girls continue to prep for their forthcoming album with the release of their Usher-assisted single “Good Love.” Accompanied by early 2000s-inspired visuals directed by DAPS, the song sees the trio having a good time at a roller skate rink.
The song samples Lathum’s 1997 song “Freak It,” a standout cut from the So So Def Bass All-Stars: Vol. 2 soundtrack. Kicking off the track, Usher opens with the intro and chorus whilst Yung Miami and JT trade verses.
“Good Love” marks City Girls’ second official single of the year, serving as a follow-up to April’s “Top Notch” featuring New York rapper and 2021 XXL Freshman Fivio Foreign. The song saw the rap duo trading verses over a drill beat, hence the feature choice and location of the accompanying music video. Since then, the song has gained over 7 million YouTube views. Prior to that, Yung Miami captured the world’s attention with “Rap Freaks” which came off the heels of “Twerkulator,” which was RIAA-certified Gold last year as well.
Meanwhile, Usher recently appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk series where he performed standouts in his catalog such as “You Make Me Wanna…,” “Confessions, Pt. II,” and more. The singer was joined by his band, which featured vocalists Eric Bellinger and Vedo, guitarist Erick Walls, and drummer Ryan Carr among others. He notably appeared on Mary J. Blige’s “Need Love” earlier this year in February, making “Good Love” his second feature of the year.
