New Music: Usher – Wait For It (From ‘Hamilton’ Mixtape)


Usher joins Hamilton.

The R&B icon is the latest artist to share his talents on the upcoming ‘Hamilton Mixtape,’ which is due out Dec. 2. Ursh joins the star-studded project with a rendition of the key Aaron Burr song “Wait For It,” originally performed by Leslie Odom Jr.

Usher takes on the chorus in his own way singing: “Love doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints / It takes and it takes and it takes / And we keep loving anyway / We laugh and we cry and we break, and we make our mistakes / And if there’s a reason I’m by her side, so many have tried / I’m willing to wait for it, I’m willing to wait for it.”

According to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, “the chorus becomes a chance for Burr to discuss many of the biggest, most fickle influences on his life. He says the same thing about death, and life, and Hamilton. Both Burr and Hamilton have this sinner/saint duality. They are, at the core, good men, but both are extremely flawed.”

Take a listen to Usher’s version of “Wait For It” below.
