Land   Verenigde Staten

Met wat hulp van Sean (Puff Daddy) Combs krijgt de muzikale loopbaan van Usher vorm met de release van zijn tweede album My Way in 1997. Daarvoor waren al enkele singles verschenen en het debuutalbum Usher.

In 1998 verschijnt de Amerikaan met You Make Me Wanna voor het eerst in de Top 40. Van het album Confessions komt de single Yeah! (met Ludacris en Lil’ John). Daarmee scoort Usher zijn negende hit in de Top 40 en zijn eerste nummer 1-notering.

Inmiddels heeft Usher 19 hits gescoord in de Top 40, waarvan DJ Got Us Falling In Love (2010, samen met Pitbull) de meest succesvolle was. Het album UR, dat voor 2014 gepland stond, wordt uitgesteld omdat Usher niet tevreden is met het resultaat.

In april bereikt Don't Look Back, de track die hij samen met Martin Garrix maakte, de Top 40.


Songtekst

Hello everybody
Welcome today to the wonderful world of you
Now check it
You have two options
You can eat it or throw it away

See it's a shame
When you're working and doing well
People hate you, yeah
Buying nothing less but the best for yourself
They really hate you, yeah
You gotta live for you and no-one else
Don't let them make you feel like you're not being real
Just live how you wanna live
You gotta do for you

Dig that
You work hard, play hard
Dig that
And do what you wanna do
Dig that
Just pop ya collar
Don't let what people say bother you
Dig that
You perpetrators, I got something to say
Dig that
You can eat it or throw it away
Picture that
You're just mad cause you're following in my tracks
So can you dig that?

Hey, ladies (yeah)
Hey, my fellas (yeah)
You know you're doing good 'cos they're jealous
(Pop, pop)
They only hate you 'cos you're a go-getter
(Pop, pop)
Pop your collar and don't let them sweat ya
(Pop)

Hey, ladies (yeah)
Hey, my fellas (yeah)
You know you're doing good 'cos they're jealous
(Pop, pop)
They only hate you 'cos you're a go-getter
(Pop, pop)
Pop your collar and don't let them sweat ya
(Pop)

You can see me every week
Hanging out with a different girl sitting next to me
'Cos I'm not about to settle down right now
I gotta be free
Some of y'all fellas might be jealous
But y'all know that don't phase me
I just pop my collar
Tip my hat
Turn my back on the ones that hated me

Dig that
Never going home alone
Dig that
When she calls, you know it's on
Dig that
She gets the pager not the cellular phone
Never that
I let her know I won't be around for long
Dig that
To all you haters I got somethin' to say
What's that?
You can eat it or throw it away
Picture that
Stop hatin', wishin', waitin'
Anticipatin' for my heat to fade

Hey, ladies (yeah)
Hey, my fellas (yeah)
You know you're doing good 'cos they're jealous
(Pop, pop)
They only hate you 'cos you're a go-getter
(Pop, pop)
Pop your collar and don't let them sweat ya
(Pop)

Hey, ladies (yeah)
Hey, my fellas (yeah)
You know you're doing good 'cos they're jealous
(Pop, pop)
They only hate you 'cos you're a go-getter
(Pop, pop)
Pop your collar and don't let them sweat ya
(Pop)

I break my neck for the things I get
So much sweat just so I can get that check
And I'm not gonna let nobody bring me down
(Nobody's gonna steal my crown)
Because I eat good (eat good)
I live good (live good)
I ride good (ride good)
My life's good (my life's good)
If you got a lot and you're working for it
Pop your collar
Don't be afraid to show it

Hey, ladies (yeah)
Hey, my fellas (yeah)
You know you're doing good 'cos they're jealous
(Pop, pop)
They only hate you 'cos you're a go-getter
(Pop, pop)
Pop your collar and don't let them sweat ya
(Pop)
