Three months ago DJBooth was sent the Rich Harrison-produced cut, Dat Gurl Right Dere. The song was sung by Harrison’s own artist, Young Steff, and featured a then on-the-rise rapper named Hurricane Chris. While Harrison still has high hopes for Steff, the crafty production veteran pawned off the beat (along with the title and melody) to R&B King, Usher. Still unknown if the buzz cut will be the first off Usher’s untitled 2008 album, Dat Girl Right There is a club smash waiting in the wings and is the second high-profile collaboration between two of ATL’s finest, Usher Raymond and Ludacris. While Usher ushers in a new era in his musical career, can the undisputed Goliath stay on top?
