Missin U

Album: Hard II Love (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Usher sings here about his dream girl. He ruminates about "all of the things that don't exist yet" such as their post-sex breakfasts and her drunken texts. Even though Usher hasn't met her yet, he's missing this fantasy woman, and is hoping when she's ready, she will "hurry up to the home."
  • The winding and alluring club-ready cut was produced by Pop and Oak, who previously worked with Usher on his 2014 single "Good Kisser." The duo have also produced several of Nicki Minaj's singles including "Your Love" and "Right By My Side," as well as Alessia Cara's breakthrough release "Here."
  • The song features a sample of Steely Dan's track "Third World Man" from their 1980 album Gaucho.
