"Outstanding" was written by The Gap Band member, Raymond Calhoun and released in 1982 by the musical group's platinum album, Gap Band IV. It quickly became their signature song and hit the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The up-tempo song is all about love and how the narrator's significant other satisfies him in every way, using metaphors like "light my fire" and "blow my mind".
Blake and Usher's rendition is so much fun. Their high energy performance showcases their talents, especially Blake's as he entertainingly performs an R&B classic with his southern drawl, making it all the more enjoyable to listen to. Gotta love when Blake performs out of his element because it's always an awesome surprise and he never fails at it - similar to when Usher covered Blake's hit "Neon Light" at the same event.
Don't miss out on this! Give it a watch.
