VIDEO: Usher covers Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks

Usher let loose and showed some of his rock side this week during an appearance on the BBC.

The R&B star was in London to promote his new album, “Looking 4 Myself,” which hit stores on Tuesday; he played a show at the city’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on Monday.

On Wednesday, Usher performed a set of tunes on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Series, and among them was a cover of Foster The People’s smash hit “Pumped Up Kicks.”

The singer played bass on the track, which he introduced as “one of my favorites.”
