Check Out: Usher covers Foster the People "Pumped Up Kicks"


Exciting things happened at Usher’s recent BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge appearance! Not only did he wear a truly excellent denim vest, but Mr. Raymond personally laid down the fantastic, relentlessly catchy bassline from Foster the People’s smash hit “Pumped Up Kicks.” We didn’t think this song could get any poppier, but Usher’s full-band, R&B-inflected version brings the multiple keyboards, the fuzzy guitars, the backup singers… We’re kind of crossing our fingers for a studio version.
