Usher Surprises Nico & Vinz on Tour in Manchester

Usher Nico & Vinz

Usher has been running through Europe on the international leg of his “UR Experience” tour this month.  Bringing “Am I Wrong” duo Nico & Vinz along with him as his opening act this time, the R&B superstar decided to do something special for the fellas during their show in Manchester on Monday night.

As if he doesn’t dance enough during his own set, Ursh surprised the audience, and Nico & Vinz themselves, when he danced his way to the front of the stage during their performance of “Am I Wrong.” Cheers filled the arena, and Nico literally fell over when he turned his shoulder and saw Usher behind him.

Usher will be returning to the U.S. soon to finish up work on his eighth studio album. His new collabo with Chris Brown, “All Falls Down,” sprung a leak over the weekend, and he has also joined DJ/producer Martin Garrix on the feel-good new dance single “Don’t Look Down.”

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.”
