Usher has been in the music industry for nearly 30 years and hasn't lost his touch yet. The R&B singer has fans celebrating his catalog today after he delivered an impressive performance on the smallest stage.
On Thursday, June 30, NPR dropped its latest Tiny Desk Concert featuring Usher Raymond. The Atlanta-based crooner was supported by a live band as he belted out a handful of his greatest hits like "You Make Me Wanna...," "Superstar," "U Don't Have to Call," "Nice & Slow," "Confessions Part II" and "My Way." At one point, he had plenty of people from NPR's crew singing along with him.
Usher's Tiny Desk Concert was shot right after he eft rehearsal for his set at Pharrell's Something In The Water Festival in Washington, D.C. Besides the wave of nostalgia that hit with each song he performed, there were other moments in his set that made day-one fans smile. Midway through his performance, Usher sounded grateful as thanked his band for riding with him, especially his two vocalists Eric Bellinger and Vedo. He also boasted about the upcoming 25th anniversary of his second studio album My Way.
The singer's latest viral performance arrived just a day before his collaboration with City Girls is set to drop. The Miami duo recently posted a preview of their new song with Usher to social media. In the behind-the-scenes clip, we can hear Usher singing to the tune of Lathun's "Freak It" while he skates in a roller rink.
