New Music: Rico Love feat. Usher & Wiz Khalifa – Somebody Else (Remix)

Rico Love Somebody Else Remix

Yesterday we posted Usher’s brief teaser, and wasting no time Rico Love has premiered the anticipated remix to his latest single “Somebody Else.”  Calling on his mentor Usher as well as Wiz Khalifa to give the catchy record a bigger boost, the three artists lay down different experiences with a women who they’ve lost, or wish will find happiness elsewhere.

Usher appears to be hoping that his ex-wife Tameka Foster finds someone new for herself, singing: “I really hope that she finds somebody else … She all about the commotion, I swear she got a heart of stone.”

While Wiz calls out Amber Rose, admitting she left an empty hole in his heart. “Thought I had it, all the magic I couldn’t imagine / Then it all went tragic, automatically, I’m the bad one,” he raps. “I was only doing us, gave you everything, a kid, a house, and a wedding ring and now you talkin’ ’bout how you could do better things.”

The new remix precedes the release of Rico Love’s major label debut album Turn The Lights On, which is due out May 11.

Usher Previews Remix to Rico Love’s “Somebody Else”

Rico Love's 29th Birthday Party

When Rico Love first released his latest single “Somebody Else” we got a feeling that Usher would sound great singing the song. Welp, we weren’t the only ones as it appears the R&B superstar has now remixed the record on his own.  Rico and Usher have plenty of history together as he first signed the hitmaking songwriter/producer to his US Records in 2003, and he has since penned numerous records for Usher.

Now, as Rico preps for the release of his own major label album Turn The Lights On, he should see a nice boost to the song if the remix becomes an official release.

While there is no word on if that is happening or not, Usher gave fans a teaser of his remix over the weekend in an Instagram video.

Check it out below and stay tuned!

Watch: Usher Performs with Broken Foot at 2015 Global Citizen Earth Day Concert


Two weeks after undergoing surgery for fracturing his foot, Usher had a message for Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. “I might be a little injured, but I’m gonna make sure that I’m there for you,” he promised. Alluding to his plans he then said, “Listen, I wanna come in style if that’s OK with you.”

Sporting a gold crutch, the R&B superstar impressively hopped and hobbled his way through a two-part 45-minute set at the 2015 Global Citizen Earth Day concert at Washington DC’s National Mall on Saturday (April 18).

At several points, the “I Don’t Mind” singer even bunny-hopped on one foot to properly turn up for a trap remix of “Yeah!” and dance hits like “Without You,” and current collaboration “Don’t Look Down” featuring Martin Garrix, who flew in to appear during Usher’s set.

Continuing with the surprises, Usher covered John Legend’s Oscar-winning song “Glory,” during which Common joined him on stage. He then switched roles helping out the rapper with some hits of his own, “Go” and “The Light,” where Usher took on hook duties in lieu of Erykah Badu.

With the crowd at new levels of hype Usher kept the covers going as he flipped to rock mode, performing The Beatles’ classic “Come Together.”  Later, he announced that he would donate his gold crutch to the first person who downloaded the Earth Day app and completed the five actions necessary to help stop climate change. “I’ma give you the crutch off my arm, and I’ma give you the shirt off my back.” But before the ladies got too loud, Usher laughed. “I wanted to just test to see if y’all were ready for me to take my shirt off.”  Though he didn’t accommodate that wish, he did provide another unexpected cover, as the crowd of over 250,000 joined him for U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

It was a very memorable performance from Usher, but he wasn’t the only R&B star who performed at the concert.  The legendary Mary J. Blige helped warm up the DC crowd earlier in the day, with past and present favorites, including “The One” and “Just Fine.”

Listen: Usher feat. Juicy J – “I Don’t Mind” (DJ Soulchild Remix)

Usher I Don't Mind Cover

DJ Soulchild is back with another one!  Following his impressive remix of Usher‘s “Clueless,” the Swiss DJ/Remixer serves up another blazing hot remix to set the dance floors on fire worldwide.

This time he puts a retro spin on Usher’s current strip club anthem “I Don’t Mind” feat. Juicy J, with the perfect marriage of old school and new school. Exchanging the 808 production of the original version for a more bass-heavy and funked up approach, Soulchild samples Melba Moore’s 1982 Disco/Funk classic “Love’s Comin’ At Ya,” which results in an irresistible, certified banger.

New Music: Usher feat. Chris Brown – All Falls Down

usher-chris brown

R&B’s reigning champs are back for round two! After collaborating on “New Flame” for X, Usher and Chris Brown come together once again for the somber love song, “All Falls Down.” A vulnerable Ursh laments about a girl who broke his heart, while Breezy does some soul searching of his own on the newly leaked tune.

“Guess the prize was the fall if I get up / Cause the strong will survive that don’t give up / Well she fell in love, her heart is resting now, 6 feet under ground,” they sing over the tinkering beat.

It’s unknown where the song will end up, but it may appear on Usher’s upcoming album.

“The song that we did together, I think it answers a lot of questions,” Usher told REVOLT last year. “There’s a lot mystery I think about a lot of things and the reality is we all are human. And though we may all experience hardship, it’s in those times that people should really rally and remember why you fell in love with the artist, why you fell in love with the person.”
