New Song: Usher – ‘Miracles’

More New Material Amidst Confusion Surrounding Album


Where is Usher‘s new album?

It’s a question we’ve increasingly asked ourselves since he abruptly stopped promoting the “era” after the slew of singles he released last year. [See: ‘Good Kisser,’ ‘She Came To Give It To You,’ and ‘I Don’t Mind.’]

And granted we’re not sure he even knows what’s going on yet, it hasn’t stopped the R&B icon from keeping his visibility up.

Last month saw the 37-year-old team with TIDAL to roll-out the socially-conscious ‘Chains’ and today brings with it the arrival of another new track – ‘Miracles.’

Uniquely, the song premiered in full within a new PEPSI short film. Titled ‘Black Knight Decoded,’ the video project features footage shot from outer space with the UrtheCast camera on the International Space Station.

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2004 #TBT

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’  allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.

Now, let’s rewind to 2004’s megahit ‘My Boo’ – a tag teamed effort of R&B superstars Alicia Keys and Usher.  As Keys had a monster year with her sophomore effort ‘Diary’ the year prior (setting the record for highest first week sales for a female artist of color at the time), Ush was experiencing the similar success as his 2004 release ‘Confessions’ set the mark for highest first week sales for a male artist of color at the time. With such booming respective successes, and after the positive response of their remix Keys’ own ‘If I Ain’t Got You,’  it only seemed fitting the two would reunite for a redo.  Enter the Jermaine Dupri-produced ‘My Boo.’

Reigning at #1 for an impressive 6 weeks, the tune helped bring to close Usher’s uber-successful ‘Confessions’ era (which to date stands at 20 million sold worldwide). Get into it below:

New Song: Usher – ‘Chains (ft. Nas & Bibi Bourelly)’


As one of the many superstars tied to the TIDAL initiative, Usher is finally leveraging the platform towards the release of new music.

Moments ago, the singer – who turned 37 this week – debuted a new track titled ‘Chains.’

Rapper Nas and Bibi Bourelly join Mr Raymond on the number, which aims to “break the chains of racial injustice” shown in high profile cases such as that of Trayvon Martin and Sandra Bland.

In an awesome move, the song received an “interactive premiere,” one which stresses that all #DontLookAway.

Shots Fired? Justin Bieber Shares Thoughts On Usher’s EDM Material


It may have earned him many commercial points but it’s safe to say Usher‘s romantic ties to Electronic Dance Music have seen him chip away at his own credibility.

Not because the material wasn’t strong…but because his decision to genre-hop was more of a tactical one than a creative one.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by his protege’ Justin Bieber who weighed in on the matter during an interview to promote his forthcoming album.
