Usher Chains

The singer drops the video for his latest track 'Chains' featuring Nas & Bibi Bourelly.

Usher has paired up with Film The Future for the official video for his new song 'Chains', aiming to shine a light on police brutality. 

The black-and-white raw video sees the singer wearing a hoodie and running from the police in the night. 

Following are powerful scenes of people with guns and handcuffs, whilst Bibi Bourelly - the woman behind Rihanna's 'BBHMM', sings, "Don't shoot." 

What the emotional video below: 

"Chains" is my way of spreading light on the issues we face in our social injustice system," Usher tweeted about the song.

"As artists we have to use our platform to spread awareness and inspire action."

The official video follows up Usher's interactive clip for the song on TIDAL that used facial technology to pause the track every time the viewers eyes diverted from the screen.
