Usher and H.E.R. have released the steamy new music video for “Risk It All,” their acclaimed collaboration off “The Color Purple,” a compilation packed with soulful offerings from the musical remake of the same name.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the visual sees the pair deliver the soulful piano-led cut amidst a captivating group of dancers. The video ends with a single shot of each artist in tears. The track is co-written by H.E.R. herself, who also appears in the film.

“Like a condition, like a religion, so easily mistreated, scary decision, sometimes it’s Hell and sometimes it’s Heaven, it’s overcomplicated, but, baby, I don’t mind, feelin’ like I’m bound to fall, close my eyes, baby, I would risk it all, yeah, sometimes it’s tragic, so problematic, people are cryin’ for it, people are dyin’ for it, always the reason, we still believe it, somethin’ that leaves us hurtin’ is worth it…”

“The Color Purple” is a 37-track effort, which boasts vocal appearances from cast members like Fantasia Barrino-Taylor, David Alan Grier, Taraji P. Henson, and Halle Bailey. Shenseea, Coco Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Megan Thee Stallion, Alicia Keys, Jorja Smith, Mary J. Blige, and many more also contributed.
