Usher And Jay Z Speak On Marriage In Usher New Song Best Thing
By now, it's hard to imagine folks aren't aware of Jay-Z and Beyonce tying the knot. It's been reported that the two were wed earlier this year. Now, in another subliminal way, Jay has added fuel to the rumor fires, or he's simply done what he's always done in speak on his life. Jay has joined Usher for a new track, "Best Thing"
where each emcee discusses marriage. Usher finally spoke on what the song does to the rumors.
"Of course, with the talk of both of us now being newlyweds, there is a question as to why, and is it real?" Usher told MTV. "Well, if you hear that [song], you'll understand what [Jay-Z] meant when he says, 'Seeds becomes plants/ Boys become men/ You've got to grow up, not down.'"
Jay also spits about a young man who did not believe in marriage, presumably speaking on himself.
"Can't give a ring up/ I couldn't give a fuck, how could I give a finger?/ Let alone half baths and closets/ So claustrophobic, in fear of close objects. Now, it's sort of like two car garages...You're the best, mama!"
Usher also speaks on the subject in his own way.
"Listen, is there any chance that you remember me being any more than just a horrible man? And would you consider pullin' this trigger and taking a second shot at romance?/ Oh baby, I want the days when you were my girl and I was your man/ Know I took you for granted/ But it wasn't until now I see how much I miss you."
The song, titled "Best Thing," is produced by longtime Common, So So Def and now Jay-Z affiliate No I.D.
