Usher Gets His “I Voted” Sticker

Usher’s new single, “Hush,” is his stab at a political story song, urging people to do good works both lyrically and by example–whether those good works involve visiting the sick or casting a ballot. On that note, Pitchfork’s Marc Hogan did a brief survey of songs mentioning this year’s Presidential candidates that includes songs by Jay-Z, the Mountain Goats, and Johns Brown and Rich–as well as a dig at the Electoral College.
