Usher And Future Make Atlanta Their Playground In New ‘Rivals’ Video

Motorcycle, strippers, BBQ... this vid has everything

After showing off his sleekest choreography in the Young Thug–assisted “No Limit” video, Usher is taking a more chill approach for “Rivals,” his first official collaboration with Future.

Despite what its title may suggest, the slow-burning number doesn’t pit Usher and Future against each other. Instead, the Atlanta natives connect by cruising their hometown together while doing best friend things: hitting up a backyard barbecue and a smoky hookah lounge, and sipping on dirty Sprite while trading verses about dirty love.

The video premiered exclusively on Tidal, which also gets a fitting shout-out on the song: “Call your baby that’s only on Tidal / 'Cause I don’t need no more rivals / I put that on the Bible.”

Tidal members can watch the full video here, and nonmembers can see a 30-second preview below.

“Rivals” appears on Usher’s upcoming eighth studio album, Hard II Love, which drops September 16.
