Along with the release of the song, Usher shared a statement on Twitter encouraging men to show their emotions, especially after the death of George Floyd.

“This song was inspired by wanting to teach my sons that it is ok for a man to feel emotions deeply and to cry. Like many men, I was raised to believe that we have to be ‘tough’ and not show our vulnerability, which I don’t want to teach them,” Usher shared. “While I was shut in during the pandemic and watching the death of George Floyd, the ongoing slaughter of Black men and women, the protests and the events that unfolded, I became very connected to the wider universal feeling of hopelessness.”

“Like many, I grew increasingly frustrated by how slow things have been to change,” Usher continued. “I became very depressed thinking about all sons who have lost their fathers to police brutality, social injustice and violence; the daughters and mothers too. So I returned to this song and realized it was intended for this time, so I finished it and here it is.”

The Weeknd Clarifies There's No Feud Between Him & Usher

The Weeknd accused fellow singer Usher of ripping off his musical style in the 2012 song “Climax,” but he’s clarifying that there’s no feud between the two of them.

In an interview with Variety, The Weeknd said, “I heard ‘Climax,’ that Usher song, and was like, ‘Holy f–k, that’s a Weeknd song.’ It was very flattering, and I knew I was doing something right, but I also got angry. But the older I got, I realized it’s a good thing.”

Diplo, who is one of the producers on “Climax,” confirms that The Weeknd was one of the inspirations for the song.

“the production on Climax lends itself to House of Balloons era @theweeknd,” Diplo tweeted. “when I heard those early records they blew my mind – soulful in their silences, and a spacey iconic voice that felt uniquely internet. the idea of R&B having dark edges was what I wanted to bring to @usher.”

Now, The Weeknd is speaking out after the reported “feud” made headlines.
