Usher "Hush"

Apple iTunes

Despite all the bling and the flashy videos seen today, it's easy to forget that soul singers often used their voices to comment on social issues (think Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Arethra Franklin, Sam Cooke). Usher continues this tradition with his new single, "Hush." Over a subtle acoustic guitar lick and a spare drum bed, Usher wonders who will stand up for those left behind during times of war and economic uncertainty. It's a departure for Usher, one that reveals another dimension of the multiplatinum star. Listen to this single
