Los dos raperos de Atlanta y Brooklyn, Usher Terry Raymond IV (1978) y Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones (1973), con el featuring de Bibi Bourelly, han colaborado en la realización de un vídeo musical interactivo para el single ‘Chains’, de momento disponible exclusivamente en la plataforma streaming Tidal y que puedes ver más abajo.

Se trata de un videoclip muy original e innovador que obliga al espectador mirar en los ojos a las personas de color victimas de violencias por parte de la policía estadounidense.

Utilizando la tecnología del reconocimiento facial, a través de la webcam de nuestro ordenadores o tabletas, el vídeo para cada vez que nuestros ojos abandonan la mirada de la gente que aparece en pantalla.

Entre las victimas que protagonizan el vídeo hemos reconocido a Trayvon Martin (1995-2012), Rekia Boyd (1990-2012), Marlon Brown (1975-2013), Ramarley Graham (1994-2012) y Caesar Ray Cruz (1980-2015).

La letra de la canción, una declarada denuncia en contra del racismo de los ‘white cops’, menciona también a otros tres hombres, Sean Bell, Eric Garner y Tamir Rice, todos asesinados por la policía americana siendo desarmados.

Usher estrenará en directo ‘Chains’ el 20 de octubre en ocasión del concierto Tidal X: 1020 que tendrá lugar en el Barclay’s Arena de Brooklyn, Nueva York. Todos los ingresos generados durante el evento serán destinados a acciones benéficas. Otros artistas black participarán: Beyoncé, Jay Z, Prince, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Meek Mill y muchos otros.

La letra de la canción

With liberty and justice for all
J-j-j-justice for all?

I’mma get mine, you should get yours too
Shooting, shooting, shooting, man them boys always shoot
(American dream, American man too)
Shooting, shooting, shooting, watch them boys always shoot
(And I-I-I-I been so tired of being insecure
So tired of)
I’ve had enough running
Running, and running and running and running
(Running)
Running, and running and running and running and
(Running enough)
Just give it up
I don’t give a fuck
I’ve had enough
Y’all give a fuck? No
Light it on fire
I’ve had enough
Running, and running and running and running
Running, and running and running and running and

You act like the change
Tryna throw me in chains
Don’t act like you saving us
It’s still the same
Man don’t act like I made it up
You blaming us
Let’s keep it one hundred
You gave the name to us
Nigga
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
You put the shame on us

Now, now, now shame on us
Now
Now, now, now shame on us
Now, now, now

Moment of silence
American school and we in church too (Don’t shoot)
Shooting, shooting, shooting, we the prey
Always shoot (Prey)
I’mma be trill, you should be trill too
You don’t even gotta talk we just shoot
And I feel so tired of being insecure
Just give it up
Don’t give a fuck
Light it on fire

Yeah, yo check
I am Sugar Ray Robinson, Booker T. Washington
W. E. B. Du Bois, I’m the modern one
Yelling at Senators, Presidents, Congressmen
We got a problem that needs some acknowledgement
I am no prison commodity, not just a body you throw in a cell
For any reason, just to bother me
Just for your quota, so it’s rest in peace to Sean Bell
Sleep in peace Eric Garner (Sandra)
Every street, every corner
Conspiracy, new world order
I spoke to Tamir Rice mom and she told me “be strong”
It won’t be long ‘til it’s justice
They won’t have votes but refuse the discussion
On how certain cops stay shoot us for nothing
Revolution is coming

You act like the change
(The land of opportunity)
Tryna throw me in chains
(The land of Unity)
Don’t act like you saving us
(Brotherhood, trust)
It’s still the same
(America)
Man don’t act like I made it up
You blaming us
(You know)
Let’s keep it one hundred
You gave the name to us
Nigga
We still in chains
(Hey so what up my nigga?)
We still in chains
We still in chains
You see these chains?
We still in chains
I can’t see
We still in chains
The difference from how we used to be
We still in chains
We still in chains
You put the shame on us

Now, now, now shame on us
Now
Now, now, now shame on us
Now, now, now
You put the shame on us)

We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
We still in chains
You put the shame on us
