Rap is much like the Ice Bucket Challenge. If you don't have a beat produced by either Mike WiLL Made-It or DJ Mustard—just like if you haven't been nominated for the challenge yet, this late in the game—you may as well not exist. Usher has taken that knowledge to heart with his new Made-It-crafted single "Believe Me." Though this isn't a cover of the Drake and Lil Wayne song by the same name, it does feature similarly monotonous bass thumping as well as last night's VMA booty-slapper crooning about his feelings all Drake-like. "I've hurt you one too many times, I had no reason why," Ursh, a recent OVO Fest guest, sings in falsetto as the song punctuates with synth drops. Listen to the entire moody song below.
