This trio said “yeah, yeah, yeah” to a new collab!

On Friday — 16 years after their 2004 hit song “Yeah!”Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris dropped a new single titled “SexBeat.” The decidedly NSFW tune once again has Lil Jon, 49, shouting “Yeah!” behind the lyrics.

There’s “something about the way it make me move, move,” Usher, 41, sings in the chorus about a love interest’s so-called “sex beat.”

“Listen, this ain’t no regular occasion, nah / This ain’t no test in keeping patient / So you don’t need to keep me waiting, waiting / Your body language I’m translating, translating / I’m tryna hear it all from your head to your heart,” sings Usher.

Hyping the song’s release on Instagram, Ludacris, 42, called the new song “Certified Quarantine Music.” The rapper also wrote, “The 🌎 Asked For it, Now the 🌎 gets it Ursher, Jon & Luda Did It Again 🔥.”

Speaking about “Yeah!” back in 2004, Usher told the Today show that most of its success can be attributed to hit-maker Lil Jon’s co-writing and producing work.

“The cool thing is the song went to No. 1 without a video,” said Usher at the time. “I was a fan of [Lil Jon’s] crunk sound. Creatively, R&B had never been associated with crunk. He wrote this record for me, and we cut it.”

He added: “We put the song out there only in hopes of warming the water up. But it got ahead of us.”

“SexBeat” is now available wherever you stream music.
