Watch Part 2 of Usher's 'Chains' Video

  /  01.30.2016

While the fight for social justice continues, Usher lends his voice to the movement in the second part of his visual experience “Chains” featuring Nas and Bibi Bourelly. The powerful anthem, which he debuted during the TIDAL X: 1020 concert in Brooklyn last year, was created to raise awareness for victims of racial injustice and police brutality.

The first part of the experience, “Don’t Look Away,” featured an interactive element where viewers were required to look into the eyes of the unarmed victims to control the video stream.

Part 2, a striking black-and-white clip directed by Film the Future, also highlights the eye-opening realities of social injustice and aims to inspire change. In between imagery of broken chains and handcuffs, Usher finds himself in church at his own funeral and in the back of a cop car with tears in his eyes.

Usher will screen the second part of the video at the Art for Social Justice exhibition in New York City today from 12 p.m.-5 p.m. ET.
