Usher chats about his new song, “Hush.”
“Hush is about my awakening over the past 10 years to the social issues in our country and realizing that I have a voice. As Americans we have the right to speak out about slow recovery in the Gulf Coast (after Hurricane Katrina), a long war and home foreclosures. But complaining isn’t enough, you have to also take action. “Whether serving at the homeless shelter or going to the polls for the first time, you have to act or else Hush.” And he takes aim at his fellow millionaires in the words of his new song, singing, “Everyday he wakes up in his million dollar home/his life is like a video/the only reality he knows/He jumps inside of his hundred thousand dollar car/cruising up the boulevard driving past people living hard.”
We will give Usher his props for stepping up with regards to expressing concern over social issues, but it would be in his best interest to enter a witness protection program so the producer of this song doesn’t hunt him down and attempt to produce another track. SMH. Are you feeling this jawn?
