New Video: Usher – ‘Rivals (ft. Future)’

Published: Tuesday 30th Aug 2016 by Sam

All roads lead to September 16th for R&B icon Usher.

The seasoned chanteur will unleash his long-awaited eight album ‘Hard II Love’ on said date and is cranking up the hype machine.

With current single ‘No Limit’ dancing its way up the Billboard charts (with a peak of #33), Ush has today revealed ‘Rivals.’

The cut features Rap’s man of the moment Future.

Springing a surprise on fans moments ago, the superstar singer debuted the viral video for the track.

What are you waiting for? Check it out below…

[UPDATED With VEVO Version]

Solid song! Sonically, it’s cohesive with the mature, yet mass appealing brand of Urban he’s been serving up this go round.

What do you think of Mr Raymond’s latest effort?

    This album is about to flop! No one has Tidal!!! Where the fûck were you when all the other albums were released on this shîtty streaming site and failed this year. Your are not worthy of pulling numbers by album streams alone Usher! Your singles will get people to buy the album. Fûcking release them through Vevo! Damn! You played yourself!

      Pretty lame comment from you. You do realise that he releases all his music such as singles 1 day or so later (onto Youtube and iTunes etc..) No need to be impatient.

      • Ughhhh August 30, 2016

        His album comes out in two weeks. This isn’t an ideal move when none of his singles he has released for this album have made any impact. So you make think my comment is lame but I’m rooting for this man to win and him and his team aren’t achieving that by working with Tidal.

      i tried to make a home outta you but doors lead to trap doors. so so so, I pray we catch you wispering Raymond

    I AM SO SICK of this streaming services exclusivity bs! All it does is get in the way of the fan experience. Usher must be deluded if he thinks people will flock to TIDAL just to listen to his new music or watch his video. It’s not 2004 anymore. Hell, he had a better chance of creating such buzz between 2010 and 2011. He’s gonna need all the streams and pure digital sales he can get in 2016. On a positive note, the single art is nice and should have actually been the official album cover.

      ETA: Just watched the video (by way of piracy of course, lmao) and it was so uneventful; just a few shots of him riding around Atlanta, a house party, some studio scenes with Future and yeah, that’s pretty much it. At least with No Limit, the dancing was exciting and looked really good in it. I mean, this is who some of y’all wanted to receive The Video vanguard Awards or whatever. *rolls eyes*

      • UR August 30, 2016

        Usher has had numerous ‘eventful’ videos to have him deserve that award.

    Like flop flop flop!

  4. Linear August 30, 2016

    Just go listen to 8701 and remember the good times. This new Usher s*** ain’t it. He looks awkward and goofy today.

  5. UR August 30, 2016

    Make you say uhhh… Relax. Usher couldn’t really care. He’s gon’ do him.

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan…… (#JOYRIDE…..) August 30, 2016

    I don’t want Usher to FLOP! His discography alone is impactful and I don’t care what anyone says but his discography>>>> Chris Browns discog as Usher has more balance and importance in his music.

    If Beyonce couldn’t save TIDAL then what makes Usher think he can do well on there with his album ready to be released in two weeks? SMH!

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

      Ummmm Beyonce/Lemonade gave Tidal is most traffic & business you date! #FACT!

  7. themusicking August 30, 2016

    The fact that this music is a Tidal exclusive for 1 day doesn’t make a difference. No one would complain if he released it across all streaming sites tomorrow for example.. so what is the difference in it remaining exclusive for just 1 day.

    • c August 30, 2016

      There is no difference and that’s the point. It’s a waste of time

      • themusicking August 30, 2016

        A waste of who’s time? Not yours, and not mine. So why be concerned?

  8. Drizzie August 30, 2016

    It ain’t about sales no more so relax. Anyways Usher new album is gonna be so good! I feel it. But his worst to me was here I stand anyway the rest have been pretty damn good. Stop looking for another confessions we off that s***. Y’all have to learn how to let an artist grow and experiment

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Briajohnny August 30, 2016

      I don’t understand why people hate on “Here I Stand” so much. People always say they want r&b from Usher, that album was like 99% r&b! His worst album was definitely “Looking 4 Myself”, and “Raymond V. Raymond” wasn’t very good either. Here I Stand is kind of a sleeper.

  9. RihYonce August 30, 2016

    This song is everything ! I love it

  10. Mujigijag August 30, 2016

    Absolutely love the song + video, his voice rides the beat nicely and future complements him on this. “Don’t need no more riivals…”

  11. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Briajohnny August 30, 2016

    Wow this song actually isn’t too bad. Miles ahead of that piece of crap “no limit.” Much better than expected. Was Future really necessary though?
