“That gave me the greatest point of reference,” said the singer, who has previously collaborated with the likes of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Lil Jon.
Usher recently said he’d been inspired by legendary Vegas showmen such as Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley while working on his Super Bowl Halftime Show, as well as music icons like Michael Jackson and Prince.
He explained that he wanted the audience to feel like they were being personally serenaded during the spectacle: “I’m literally speaking to every woman. “I want to make it feel like that.”
Usher released his new album ‘Coming Home’ today (February 9). It marks his first solo full-length project since 2016’s ‘Hard II Love’.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift fans are anticipating that the pop star could be in attendance at the Super Bowl to cheer on her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Swift, however, is currently midway through four consecutive ‘Eras Tour’ shows in Tokyo, Japan – with the final date scheduled for Saturday (February 10).
