Usher Brings Out Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, & Kid Ink at Los Angeles Show


The stars all aligned when Usher’s “UR Experience” pulled into the Los Angeles Staples Center on Friday night. After bringing out Trey Songz in Chicago, the R&B superstar had some big surprises for the L.A. audience, as he brought out his R&B brothers Chris Brown, Jeremih, and August Alsina.

Kid Ink was up first, hitting the stage for their collaboration “Body Language” before Jeremih turned up on the remix to DJ Khaled’s “Hold You Down” and his own top 10 hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

After opening for Usher earlier in the evening, August returned for “I Luv This Shit” with a surprise appearance from Chris Brown, who was greeted with roaring applause. Breezy then delved into “Loyal” while August captured the moment on his iPhone.

“Breezy, I don’t think they’re ready to turn all the way up,” said Usher before the two launched into their X hit “New Flame.” They wowed with their slick moves, and Usher showed off his abs, before hugging it out.

Hot 97 Presents: 97 Seconds With Usher (Video)


Hot 97 was graced by Usher as the next guest to appear on their “97 Seconds” series. Opening up with his feelings on what makes a real R&B artist, the veteran singer spoke about his childhood days in Atlanta, moving to New York to work with Puff, working with Jermaine Dupri, his favorite performance, and more.

“R&B is not something that anybody can do,” said Usher. “Writing a great record is something that a lot of people have been able to do. But, to be a R&B artist is far more than just being a great singer or having a hit record. You gotta really have the soul, you gotta feel it and hear it in the music.”

Usher is currently traveling North America on his “UR Experience” tour, which will make its next stop tomorrow in Los Angeles, where fans should definitely expect some surprise guests.

Usher Clueless Remix Cover

Even though he has pushed his album back until next year and claimed he isn’t ready to release it, Usher has certainly been keeping fans covered with new singles.  The latest release from the R&B superstar comes as a unique partnership with Honey Nut Cheerios, who teamed up with Usher to give fans a new song, the way our favorite cereals used to give us a toy in the bottom of the box.

The record, titled “Clueless,” found it’s way to the net this past weekend, and featured a feel-good vibe, and strong vocal from the multi-talented artist.

While the song has a great feeling, it has a pretty mellow vibe due to it’s lack of percussion.  In comes international club DJ, DJ Soulchild, who has now delivered a re-vamped version of the song with some classic drums, courtesy of MC Shan’s hip-hop classic “The Bridge.”

The slight mash-up works quite well, and gives the record a slick bounce, which it didn’t have before. Check out the remix below!
