With covers from Lauryn Hill, Jazmine Sullivan, Common, Usher, Mary J. Blige, and more, Nina Revisited...A Tribute to Nina Simone might change the compilation album game forever when it drops on July 10.
Usher's released his contribution today, a cover of Ms. Simone's 1958 single “My Baby Just Cares For Me." Backed by strings, jazzy electric piano, and spare drums, Usher sounds like a modern day Nat King Cole as he updates the original with more modern lyrics ("My baby gon keep it tight, my baby don't post for likes). Usher doesn't venture too far from the pocket, making this a tasteful tribute to one of the greats.
My baby don't care for shows
Because she's at my show
My baby don't care for fur or laces
My baby don't care Chateau, Soho, or all those expensive places
