Usher’s made a splash with his Polow Da Don-produced smash “Love in This Club,” featuring Young Jeezy. The remix pits Ursh’s vocals alongside Beyonce and Lil Wayne. But according to Plies, he and Mariah Carey were suppose to take the “Club” track to the next level, not B and Weezy. “At the time, it was conveyed to me that it was supposed to be Usher, Mariah Carey and me,” Plies explained. “Obviously, that was a no-brainer as far as putting down what I had to do. I sent two verses to them. Then I get a call from a friend of mine at a radio station that they was getting ready to go with the record, but the version they had didn’t have me on it.” [MTV News]
