Usher is still in the mood to celebrate. Fresh off the success of his monstrous will.i.am-produced single, “OMG,” the R&B singer is back in the club for his video for “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love,” the first single from his recently-released Versus EP. Alongside rapper Pitbull, Usher tries to put his best foot forward to show the world that, even at 31, he’s got what it takes to takeover the dance floor. Here, we weigh the pros and cons to reveal whether or not we’re fallin’ in love with his latest visual…

 

WINS:

  1. Eff what ya heard—Usher clearly still knows how to rock a party.
  2. Usher’s dance scene from 1:33 to 2:00 (featuring the closest thing to “video vixens” you’re gonna see here)
  3. Gratuitous Jersey Shore fist-pumping throughout the video…FTW!

 

FAILS:

  1. The cheesy Matrix-esque dance moves performed by just about everyone (except Pitbull, thankfully)
  2. Pitbull’s spot in the club’s paltry VIP section (and is that a Cosmopolitan in front of you, homie?!)
  3. Not much visual love for the DJ, huh?
  4. Didn’t the spot in “Love In This Club” look waaaay more poppin’ than the spot Usher’s at here?
