Multi-Platinum Grammy Award Winning Global Superstar Usher has released new music from his highly anticipated as-yet untitled ninth full-length album. “Boyfriend” – with a video featuring multi-hyphenate Emmy Award winning entertainer Keke Palmer – follows Usher’s latest official single, “Good Good” featuring 21 Savage and Summer Walker which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Digital Song Sales Chart. It is Usher’s second No. 1 single on this chart, and first to debut at the top. “Good Good” was also featured on the cover of Spotify’s Are & Be for 1 week, on Apple Music’s R&B Now for 2 consecutive weeks and peaked at #1 on Shazam in Atlanta, Memphis, San Francisco, New Orleans, Philadelphia and more. Palmer, who previously worked with Usher in Hustlers, recently announced a highly-anticipated, now nearly sold out, domestic tour, ‘Big Boss Tour,’ set to kick off this September.
The video for “Boyfriend” made its broadcast debut on the Paramount Times Square Billboards with support from MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop, BET Soul, and BET Jams. Filmed at Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas, watch it above.
The song is out via mega, a music collective founded by L.A. Reid and Usher in partnership with gamma. the artist-first multimedia platform providing creative and business services across all artistic and commercial formats co-founded by CEO Larry Jackson and President Ike Youssef. This joint venture will see gamma. exclusively distribute and market all music released by mega.
In conjunction with new music coming, Usher My Way: The Las Vegas Residency kicked off its second sold-out year, birthing numerous viral moments with shows through October. Usher: Rendez-vous à Paris, the European residency at La Seine Musicale, will kick off on September 24 until October 5.
Usher has changed music, culture, and countless lives. The multiple GRAMMY Award-winning diamond-selling international megastar, actor, dancer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist inspires change yet again in 2023 and beyond.
Beyond selling over 80 million records worldwide and collecting dozens of awards, he has simultaneously lit up the small screen on NBC’s The Voice and the big screen in blockbusters such as Hustlers. He has also tirelessly distinguished himself as a devout humanitarian, raising tens of millions of dollars for various causes and uplifting youth via his New Look Foundation. Since 1999 he has been providing opportunities for young people in underserved communities and enabling them to flourish and achieve seemingly impossible dreams. A true outlier, he is equally at home on the stage of his sold out My Way Las Vegas residency as he was on a 2016 government cultural mission to Cuba as part of President Barack Obama’s Presidential Committee for Arts and Humanities.
