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

Published: Friday 16th Oct 2015 by Sam

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.

See, quite literally, what we mean below…

    Usher is the most talented man on the charts, he has solid vocal ability. Great stage presence and every once in a while – he really – hits home

    I guess it’s safe to assume that Usher is the new MJ long after he’s been declared his successor. Heck, MJ himself welcomed Usher with open arms and publicly CLAIMED him. Just like the king of pop, he’s helping you”Heal the World” one socially-conscious song at a time. I would love for this song to start charting and increase its impact over radio.

      There will NEVER be another Michael Jackson.

        I understand and agree with your opinion. That man is simply another species of human. However, what I intended to insinuate was that MJ had NO PROBLEM passing the torch and giving his blessing to Usher. Even when Usher tributed the hell out of Michael at his 30th Anniversary concert special, MJ EMBRACED Usher like his own damn SON. Usher is the CLOSEST male performer Alice to MJ, and of course, Queen Janet IS the female MJ, s*** songs or social songs alike. Now, some people DONT LIKE to see and DONT WANT two successful black men (similar to a father and son relationship) to support and be civil to each other, but those racists can miss me with that craziness. I don’t think you’re one of those people, by the way.

    Usher is a vocally vicious and this is on some Marvin Gaye “What’s going on” vibe. This is so powerful!!!!!
