We haven’t seen much promotion of Usher’s new album, Looking 4 Myself but we have already found a favorite track off the project — the Salaam Remi produced gem “Sins Of My Father.” Check it out below and read what Ush had to say about what the song meant to him:
“The inspiration of it is, why do we sometimes deal with things that we don’t understand? Our past can lead us down a road because we didn’t even know it,” he told SoulCulture, “The time spent with a father will teach you a certain understanding of live and how to cope and deal with things.”
The Chattanooga, Tennessee raised star adds, “The lack of a father being there can also teach you how to deal with life – and that’s what ‘Sins Of The Father’ is about… That statement was made because that’s something that I felt.”
“But I’m adding to the statistic that there are fathers out there who are there for there children, who are there to raise them, who understand that they have to take that time and really make sure that they make that connection.
“And understand that these kids are future adults – they’re not kids – so if you don’t give them the time and attention they need now, then they’ll be running around and somebody else will be knocking them upside the head or they’ll be incarcerated.” He adds, “That song in itself is kind of a testament to the father that I became.”
Good stuff right?
