"U Remind Me" is a song by American singer Usher. It was written by Edmund ”Eddie Hustle” Clement and Anita McCloud and produced by Edmund "Eddie Hustle" Clement along with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for Usher's third studio album 8701 (2001). A fast-paced mid-tempo contemporary R&B track, the song is about a man who meets a woman who seems like a nice catch, but he decides not to enter a relationship with her because she looks too much like an ex-girlfriend with whom he had a bad breakup.
The song served as the lead American single from 8701 following the release of previous single "Pop Ya Collar" which was only included in some editions of the album. "U Remind Me" topped the US Billboard Hot 100 on July 7, 2001 and also reached the top five in Australia, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The song won Usher his first Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance in 2002. Its accompanying music video features Chilli of TLC as one the female leads.
