Usher is back with blazing new single ‘Bad Habits.’
The premiere of the hard-hitting jam was paired with the arrival of its Chris Robinson directed music video.
Both are believed to be lifted from the superstar’s forthcoming studio album – which has been teased as a sequel to his RIAA Diamond certified ‘Confessions’ LP.
Aptly, the confessional cut sees the crooner admit:
“I love love, I’m just bad at it. I just can’t escape all of these Bad Habits.”
Check out the action after the jump…
Now, this is what we’ve been waiting for.
From the subtle nostalgia of the song’s production to the narrative driven video, this was a home-run across the board.
As the ‘Confessions’ era highlighted in earnest, there is ample power in Usher’s output when he leads with lyric and this makes for both a compelling listen and an engaging watch.
Sure, he’s dropped a few buzz tracks in the lead up. But this feels like the definitive “I’m back” moment.
