Usher releases new visual for “Bad Habits”
Fans of Usher are definitely getting prepped for a new album. He already released many singles including “Don’t Waste My Time” with Ella Mai, “SexBeat” with Lil Jon and Ludacris, “California” with Tyga,” and the socially charged “I Cry.” Moreover, he also partook in Good Morning America’s “2020 Summer Concert Series,” wherein he performed many of his hits for those whiling their time away in quarantine. Now, he is all set to come back with another amazing track called “Bad Habits,” produced by Pierre Medor and Lxrd Rossi, wherein he can be seen talking about relationship issues, similar to the Confessions era:
“I love love, I’m just bad at it, I just can’t escape all of these bad habits, I had way too many one nights, yeah, I keep messin’ up my love life, yeah…/”
The visual comes courtesy of legendary director Chris Robinson, and audience can see that his Ushers finds his girl with his phone, which clearly denotes that he was unfaithful to some extent. Then, a big dance number is incorporated, wherein Usher is still mulling over his mistakes.
The upcoming release of Usher, which is believed to be titled Confessions II, comes after his 2016’s Hard II Love, his eighth LP, which was first launched via the JAY-Z-helmed TIDAL platform that he co-owns. Although it was very exclusive, the project still managed to end up at number five on the Billboard 200, as it sold 38,000 units.
Apart from “Bad Habits,” it was also announced that Usher will be going to a Las Vegas Residency in 2021, wherein he will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace from July till January of the following year.
“I cannot wait to perform for an audience… In Vegas, I get a chance to create the show that I want, and I get a chance to be with my fans who’ve been cooped up for months and months.”
The chairman of REVOLT Media & TV, Sean “Diddy” Combs announced his plans to open up a new college prep school in The Bronx.
The plan is to open Capital Prep Bronx on Sep. 8, and for now, the method of teaching will be limited to remote tools, due to Coronavirus. During the first year of the school, almost 200 underserved sixth and seventh grade students will attend the lectures. In the next few years, the school is optimistic of teaching 650 students, from grades six through eleven.
“My dream has always been to provide children, in communities like the Bronx, the high quality education they deserve,” said Diddy in a statement. “We’re not just teaching reading, math and coding. We are grooming future leaders that will change their communities and the world.”
Previously, two other prep schools were opened by Diddy and Dr. Steve Perry; which are located in Harlem, New York and Bridgeport, Connecticut.
“We couldn’t be more excited to open our next school together in Co-Op City, a community rooted in social justice and diversity.” Dr. Perry said in a statement. “While opening up remote at first is bittersweet, we have developed a best in class approach to online learning we are excited to implement with our new families. The Capital Prep college prep model is perfectly poised to transition into the digital space and we are excited to deliver a rigorous education to this inaugural class of scholars.”
Two years ago, Diddy- a longtime education advocate- pledged to donate $1 million towards the Bronx location. Stating that he knows the environment in which the kids lived, he expressed that he wanted to offer them a quality education.
“I understand the importance of access to a great education, and the critical role it plays in a child’s future,” he previously said. “Our school provides historically disadvantaged students with the college and career skills needed to become responsible and engaged citizens for social justice.”
