R&B legend Usher has celebrated the release of his latest single, ‘Boyfriend’, with a Ricky Alvarez directed visual featuring Keke Palmer. This follows the controversy between the pair at Usher’s Las Vegas residency, with both leaning into the controversy through the tongue-in-cheek video.

Usher has established himself as a superstar across his seasoned career, boasting multiple GRAMMY awards as well as selling over 80 million records worldwide. His latest offering showcases his smooth vocal range and playful lyricism, and follows ‘Good Good’ which featured 21 Savage and Summer Walker and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard R&B chart.

With more music on the way and an upcoming tour, Usher is back in his element and ready to open a new chapter in his storied career. ‘Boyfriend’ looks set to capitalise on a viral moment, whilst also showcasing a new era for a legendary artist.
