    Usher and R. Kelly: 'Same Girl,' same song?

    May 15, 2007, 02:30 PM | by Chris Schonberger
    Categories: Music


    A song called ''Same Girl'' on an album called Double Up may sound like a bit much to handle before cocktail hour, especially when it involves two of R&B's most notorious "lovers," R. Kelly and Usher. But in spite of the indiscretions attributed to the two singers in the past, the duo actually find themselves the victims in this PG-rated tale of lust and infidelity. Sound unlikely? Let me break it down:
    The track starts off rather tamely as R. Kelly extols the virtues of a new lady friend to his buddy Usher (pictured). She sounds like a lovely woman: great apartment, enviable proportions, and an ankle tattoo. But somehow Usher seems uncomfortable. "Wait a minute, hold on dog," he counsels.
    With the appropriate trepidation, he begins to inquire about her educational background, profession, and eating habits (she ''loves some Waffle House''). Suddenly, the previously ebullient R is reeling with uncertainty. ''Tell me what's wrong dog!'' he yells. It seems that Usher knows the girl ''like a Pastor knows his Word.'' In the Biblical sense? Word.
    With the evidence piling up rapidly, the contemporary Sherlock and Watson finally stumble upon the shocking truth: they've been ''messing with the same girl''!!! The R met her at a party in Chicago; Ush met her at a party in Atlanta. Different area codes, yes, but the Pied Piper don't play that.

    Rather than fighting like boys or calling her crude names, the two men bemoan their misfortune and appear to be genuinely hurt. R. Kelly croons, ''I thought it was true 'Confessions' when she said, 'I love you,''' while Usher cries, ''And I thought her body was callin' when she said, 'I want you.''' The dagger in their collective heart is that she keeps two cellphones and may be using the same ringtone for each man. Cold as ice!
    After a brief discussion, they decide to pull the classic move favored by middle-school dudes who want to see if a girl has a crush on them: Usher will call the two-timing harlot while R. Kelly listens in on the line. Then, they will agree to meet her at an undisclosed location and sing a duet of ''Same Girl,'' thereby rendering her speechless.
    No fights. No interrogations. Just music and friendship triumphing over betrayal. In a way, it's a remarkably vulnerable and honest song from two kings of R&B (Best of... the Same World?). Yet not quite what you would expect to hear when the men behind ''Bump 'n' Grind'' and ''Burn'' get together. Are Usher and Kelz softening up these days?
    Well, not quite. It seems there is a bit of controversy surrounding the authorship of ''Same Girl.'' Apparently, the Atlanta-based R&B outfit Nephu recorded a track of the same name as the lead single on their album that was eventually dropped by Capitol Records. As they did not actually write the song, Capitol decided to pass it on to Kelz and Usher. The Nephu track is remarkably similar, but needless to say, it is not quite as good.
    Of course, this is not that unusual; everyone knows R&B and ghostwriting go together like evening wear and Zorro masks. But for the man who wrote ''Trapped In the Closet,'' there's something a bit too squeaky clean about this tale. Does anyone else smell a Kelly-composed ''Part Two''? Rumors are already circulating about Justin Timberlake's involvement...
    What do you think, PopWatchers? If this jezebel has such a way with musicians, who else could she have she been with?

    a good read and if there is a strong buzz for the song and a video drops then expect Kellz to probably be on Usher's next album. this is Good PR for Both and could open up some more colabs. it's serving it's purpose. I don't know why they only say Ghostwriting and R&B go hand in hand when Ghostwriting works in all styles of music and always has gone down. regardless of the track the fact you put two big names together on a track will generate more than enough hype and Jive got what it wanted here. now when the Album is out for a few weeks we shall see the results.

    This is a great article. Very positive and no talk about the trial!!!! I think we all agree Part 2 will be huge. If Justin Timberlake is on it then it should be very interesting. I wonder what his role would be.....

    part 2, maybe or a remix it would be cool. Justin with R. Kelly, why not if the sound come right and JT is a good artist, got alot of soul in him and i wouldnt mind him featurig with R. Kelly as long as it is a hit
