Usher Thanks ‘Queen’ Rihanna After She Calls Him a ‘Legend’

Mr. Nimbus | 12/21/2023

Rihanna is passing the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer torch to Usher in 2024, and she had no advice for the “Yeah” singer.

“Hell no, I can’t give Usher no advice,” RiRi told E! News. “Usher is a natural, he’s a legend, he’s been doing this since he’s a teenager. He is made for that show.”

Upon seeing her comments, Usher himself replied via X (formerly known as Twitter). “Real recognize real,” he wrote. “Thank U Queen @rihanna.”

It was announced back in September that Usher would be headlining the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Apple Music, during the game set to take place Feb. 11, 2024. “It’s an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. I can’t wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from me before,” Usher said in a statement. “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I’ll see you real soon.”

Usher also announced that his ninth albumComing Home, will arrive arriving on Super Bowl Sunday. This set marks his first new album since 2016’s Hard II Love, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

This year will mark the fifth year of the partnership between the NFL and Roc Nation to produce the Halftime Show, after a deal struck in 2019. That partnership has resulted in halftime shows by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez (2020), The Weeknd (2021), a hip-hop showcase anchored by Dr. DreSnoop DoggEminemMary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar (2022), and Rihanna (2023).
