Usher’s “Chains” Video Aims “To Spread Awareness And Inspire Action”

“Learn how you can get involved.”

February 02, 2016

Usher delivered a black-and-white clip for "Chains" today. It's full of guns, handcuffs, and sirens; at one point, Usher finds himself attending his own funeral. I feel so tired of being insecure, he sings over bottom-heavy production. Just give it up, don't give a fuck: light it on fire. Nas and Bibi Bourelly both help out with the track.

On Instagram, Usher wrote, "'Chains' is my way of spreading light on the issues we face in our social injustice system. As artists we have to use our platform to spread awareness and inspire action. Please visit chainshub.org and @sankofadotorg to learn how you can get involved and build a more effective social movement."
