“Scream” is a song by American recording artist Usher, released through RCA Records, as the second single from his seventh studio album Looking 4 Myself (2012). It was written by Usher, Savan Kotecha, Max Martin and Shellback, with production handled by the latter two. The song premiered on the internet on April 26, 2012, and was released the following day as a digital download. “Scream” is primarily a synthpop and dance-pop track. Critics compared its musical structure to that of Usher’s 2010 single “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love”, which was also co-written by Martin, Kotecha, and Shellback. “Scream” was noted to contain heavily sexual overtones within its lyrics.

“Scream” peaked at number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and went on to sell over one million copies in the country. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song peaked within the top five in several other countries, including Canada, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. It went on to be certified gold by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI) and IFPI Denmark (IFPI) for shipments of 150,000 and 15,000 copies, respectively. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised its production, though some were ambivalent towards its originality.

Usher performed “Scream” during several events and shows, including the Off-Broadway show Fuerza Bruta, the 2012 Billboard Music Awards and during E3 2012. An accompanying music video premiered on the internet on June 12, 2012. Directed by direction duo BB GUN, the video contains footage from the Fuerza Bruta show, with Usher reenacting his role as The Running Man, dancing with his love interest and running into a brick wall towards the video’s closure.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Usher, baby
Yeah, yeah
Did it again
And this time I’ma make you scream (Usher)
Yeah, man

[Verse 1]
I see you over there, so hypnotic
Thinking ’bout what I’d do to that body
I’d get you like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Got no drink in my hand, but I’m wasted
Getting drunk off the thought of you naked
I get you like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
And I try to fight it, to fight it
But you’re so magnetic, magnetic
Got one life, just live it, just live it
Now relax and get on your back

[Chorus]
If you wanna scream, “yeah”
Let me know and I’ll take you there
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you want it done right
Hope you’re ready to go all night
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you wanna scream (Yeah, c’mon)

[Verse 2]
Kill the lights, shut them off, you’re electric
Devil eyes telling me come and get it
I’ll have you like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Girl, tonight, you’re the prey, I’m the hunter (Hunter)
Take you here, take you there, take you under
Imagine me, whispering in your ear that I wanna
Take off all your clothes and put something on you

[Pre-Chorus]
And I try to fight it, to fight it
But you’re so magnetic, magnetic
Got one life, just live it, just live it
Now relax and get on your back

[Chorus]
If you wanna scream, “yeah”, oh
Let me know and I’ll take you there
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you want it done right
Hope you’re ready to go all night
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby, yeah
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you wanna scream

[Bridge]
I’ma make you scream loud
La da, scream, la da (Usher)
La da, la da, la da, da da da
Hey, somebody scream out with me, oh

[Chorus]
If you wanna scream, “yeah”
Let me know and I’ll take you there
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you want it done right (Right)
Hope you’re ready to go all night
Get you going like ooh baby, baby, ooh baby, baby
Ooh baby, baby, ooh baby
If you wanna scream (Scream, scream, scream)
