I've been a fan of Usher for years. I knew his earlier work but really got into his music with his 2001 LP, "8701." That album had some stellar songs such as, "U Remind Me," "U Don't Have to Call," and, "U Got it Bad." He did a lot of playing around with letters as words back then, obviously. Since 2001 Usher has obviously had a lot of other great tunes, of course, from, "Yeah!" with Ludacris and Lil' Jon to a number of songs he had on his own records or guested on other folk's LPs. Therefore, it was pleasing to hear Usher will be performing at the 58th Super Bowl on February 11th, 2024.
I loved the halftime show in 2022 (Super Bowl LVI) where a bunch of fantastic artists performed. Then Rhianna was there last year and it was...well, she was there. I'm pumped for Usher to perform and imagine he will do a fun variety of his popular tunes. I wonder if he'll have some guests come out and join him as that would be cool too (it is practically mandatory that we get the aforementioned Ludacris and Lil' Jon making an appearance). There will be a football game too, but it is far too early in the season to guess who might be playing. I mean, obviously not the Jets, but that's a given.
