#TBT MJ & Usher “You Rock My World”

A little #TBT action for ya today as I stumbled upon a Michael Jackson live concert at Madison Square Garden from September 10th, 2001, the night before the horrific events of 9/11 (#NeverForget). That alone is crazy to think about, and for the sake of this post, I’m focused on the joy that MJ brought the NYC fans in the video below. The crowd loved “You Rock My World” (one of my top-tier MJ faves of all-time too) and the performance became even more special when MJ brought out Usher for his smooth dance stylings at the end. And that’s not all. Chris Tucker, co-star of the “You Rock My World” video if you recall, also surprised and did a little nifty dance move himself. Watch out for all this in the performance video below (and brace yourself for a loud electronic intro too, ha).

And now… for some current Usher music and tidbits…

First, Usher performed his new single “She Came To Give It To You”, solo and acoustic style recently. The result is a version I prefer because it’s a smooth song in general that didn’t need a Nicki Minaj guest verse to contrast.

Rounding it all out is a new interview with XXL where Usher reveals the song title and concept for his upcoming collaboration with Drake.
