Usher Covers "Pumped Up Kicks": Watch Now!

by at . Comments

Here's a different take on a hit song by an artist you didn't see coming - and unlike the 96 "Call Me Maybe" covers out there, requires actual talent!

Usher took on Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" as part of his Live Lounge Special on BBC's Radio 1, showing off his surprising musical range.

He even played bass guitar himself on the track! For a man known for his sexy R&B tunes, Usher's not half bad when it comes to electro indie-rock.

Watch him do Foster the People proud below:

Don't stress it, I'm 21 and when I look back 15 and 16 was still a prttey darn hard age.By the time youre a senior all those girls will be nasty skanks and you'll just be concedered awesome.I was teased alot when I was younger,I mean ALOT. I had no friends and I thought it would always be that way. But turns out all that stuff that makes you weird and awkward at that age are the things that make you cool and unique later.Keel your chin up, they'll have herpies by 12th grade!
