Usher and H.E.R’s new single is the second track listing from The Color Purple soundtrack.

Before the film adaptation of The Color Purple musical is released, fans have a small taste of the film’s score. Grammy winners Usher and H.E.R. have come together for the captivating duet, “Risk It All.”

Produced and co-written by H.E.R and Jimmy Napes, the ballad hears the two superstars sing with raw emotion about themes found in the film: risk, love, and liberation.

The lyrics describe many facets of being in love, from the freedom to the complications and everything in between. Despite all the ups and downs, the twosome deem the experience worthy of taking the chance. “I don’t mind / Feelin’ like I’m bound to fall,” they sing in sweet unison on the chorus. “Close my eyes / Baby, I would risk it all.”

The film’s official soundtrack includes songs from Mary J. Blige, Megan Thee Stallion, Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole, Jorja Smith, Coco Jones, Ciara, Mary MaryUsher, H.E.R., Missy Elliott, Fantasia Barrino, and the aforementioned Keys.
