This year, NPR Music is celebrating Black Music Month with an array of brand new Tiny Desk concerts - both from home and from behind our beloved Desk. Together, these artists represent the past, present and future of Black music. This month of carefully curated shows is a celebration of Black artists expressing themselves in ways we've never seen before, and of the Tiny Desk's unique way of showcasing that talent.

Bobby Carter | June 30, 2022
"We celebrate Black Music Month. This has been Black magic." Truer words may have never been spoken behind the Tiny Desk as R&B goliath Usher caps off our month-long celebration of Black music, highlighting a catalog chock-full of hits spanning 25 years. It's been over two years since NPR headquarters was abuzz with chatter of a legend in the building. After an early morning rehearsal for his set at the Something in the Water Festival in Washington, D.C., he made his way over to deliver an unforgettable performance.

Usher and his band, all dipped in black, set it off with an introduction over a funky horn-laced instrumental reminiscent of a Blaxploitation flick. They keep that groove going right into a reworked version of his 1997 breakout single, "You Make Me Wanna..." Twenty-five years later, Usher sits arguably as the king of R&B. Between 2000 and 2010, there was no debate whatsoever, with his string of records that included the biggest R&B album of the 21st century, Confessions.

What he's done in the vocal booth is only half of his claim to fame. The stage is where he's continued to shine as he prepares for the second leg of his Las Vegas residency. This loose and playful set touches on his many career phases; the crooning, the deeply personal, the club bangers and even the Tik Tok challenges indicate that he could just be reaching his prime. Recently, we've heard plenty of hot takes, wild battles and social media fodder about who sits at the mountaintop in the world of R&B. Usher Raymond has entered the chat.

"You Make Me Wanna..."
"U Don't Have to Call"
"Nice & Slow"
"Confessions Part II"
"My Way"

Usher is a class singer. The man can ACTUALLY sing. And after all these years he still sounds the same. Everyone should be an Usher stan. If you love music, and don't love Usher do you really like music?
pignonMZ6 6 วันที่ผ่านมา
Yeah it's called different taste, personally I really enjoyed this TDC with Usher but for the most past of his career I mostly ignored what he did, not on purpose, I just love Jazz more than most music genre. I am a musician, I do love music, I have my heroes (Sonny Rollins still my number 1 after all these years) and I can't spend a day without music in my life. But no, I have a very limited interest in Usher beyond that session at TDC.

If you follow the Bible you will know that most all of the 1,800 prophecies has come to pass. Once the final few happen Jesus Christ will return. Jesus is the Way the truth and the life. He accepts you no matter where you've been. Doomsday is on the horizon. Believe Jesus is the Son of God. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Read the Bible! Try to repent of your sins. Read the Bible. "If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Our Saviour Jesus Christ died so that we will live. Jesus said, "I'm the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". John 14:6. So, believe in Jesus - the Son of God 🙏

@Big B it has everything to do with vocals AND hits, Usher has both. Usher has nine #1 singles CB has two. CB makes a lot of music but most of his albums sound the same. I think CB fans live in a bubble bc in the real world CB’s music is good but there’s nothing that gives me chills. It’s just too pop sounding. But Usher…baby! He got classics and he will SANG you out of your clothes. CB could neva

He is really an exceptional vocalist, who is also very gifted. He puts the time in and he takes care of his instrument, that is obvious. Avoiding addictions like smoking or drinking can keep your gift in good shape for a very long time. Glad to see he is taking care of his gifted voice. I am not a big Usher fan, but I can appreciate how gifted he is.

Amazing from start to finish. Usher’s voice and presence, his incredible band, and to top it off Eric Bellinger and Vedo as backing singers. Oh my! That was a Tiny Desk masterclass!

Love a Tiny Desk - but this excelled in every way! Loved Usher for 20+ years, but the first time I saw this (this is now my 7th viewing!) I truly fell in love with him! He. Is. Everything!!!!

You can tell Usher really takes care of his voice a lot. Most known artist start to lose their voice after many years. Usher just keep improving. Thats called using proper technique.

This may seem off topic but uh... I'm a 2x Iraq Combat Vet. Also served as a firefighter in Missouri for 6+ years. I usually don't sleep because I usually see faces when I close my eyes.. But man, Man... Our music and the music before us will put tears in your eyes. Tears of joy and love BACK INTO YOUR HEART... FROM PAC TO USHER TO JODECI TO MARVIN TO MARY J.... AND SO MANY OTHERS I DIDNT MENTION...

Believe in Jesus. Believe in the Son of God. Believe in the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. If you follow the Bible you will know that most all of the 1,800 prophecies has come to pass. Once the final few happen Jesus Christ will return. Jesus is the Way the truth and the life. He accepts you no matter where you've been. Doomsday is on the horizon. Believe Jesus is the Son of God. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Read the Bible! Try to repent of your sins. Read the Bible. "If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Our Saviour Jesus Christ died so that we will live. Jesus said, "I'm the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me".

Its an understatement to say Usher is incredible in this. I gotta give credit to this band. I love how the drummer stuck to the basics and just made a perfect pocket for the others. Kids this is how you play the drums. So dope
