as a millennial,
i pulled up to see my gen x legend give us a performance.
usher has been a part of many of our lives since we were young.
he has done some dumb shit over the years that has gotten him caught up.
see what i did there?
he’s like bey with songs that bring back hella memories.
Sidebar: I’m listening to Confessions and I am taken back to a time when I was getting over someone.
I couldn’t listen to this album for a long time but it still sounds so fresh as it did in 2004.
i remember when “yeah” dropped and all the white wolves lost their shit.
that song in the club use to activate peak “copy the video” too.
so when i see…
“I was underwhelmed.”
“He looked tired.”
i feel like many of these jackals are gonna hate their aging process.
usher is a mid 40s wolf who is still giving us choreography.
he isn’t going to perform like “my way usher” in his 20s.
the fact that he is still giving us a show is a testament to his legacy.
Can we font when that shirt came off and he showed that mid 40s juicy ‘n’ thick bawdy?
i lost my mind briefly at this part.
he looks so much better to me now than when he was younger.
it’s that maturity in his face.
well the ratings are in and:
He pulled into ( x 30 million of us ) for his performance.
5% more than Rih.
…so he is still continuing to win,
“confessions” has more sales than any black artist of this century,
his vegas residency was always sold out,
and his tickets for his latest tour are selling like hot cakes.
usher has literally got a career resurgence that isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
i think usher will be fine if folks didn’t like his concert last night.
lowkey: and can we please stop being applaud about him hugging alicia?
they are more mad than she is and she didn’t look mad.
i would love a charismatic sexy negro to pull up on me like he did.
