One thing Usher Terry Raymond IV knows how to do is keep folks talking!

The 44-year-old R&B superstar has the streets of social media buzzing after he released the official music video for his new single, “Boyfriend,” which stars multi-hyphenate Keke Palmer

In the song, Usher sings, “Somebody said that your boyfriend is looking for me. That’s cool…that’s cool. Well, he should know that I’m pretty easy to find. Just look for me wherever he sees you!” 

Ironically, the single arrives a month after Darius Jackson, Keke’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her son, Leodis, had a cyber meltdown after she attended Usher’s show in Las Vegas.

Keke took to Twitter to express her gratitude to Usher for making her dream come true:

Usher! I remember when I was 12 and auditioned for “In The Mix” 🤣 You have been killing it all my life.

As a true lover of the arts, your talent and craftsmanship are a rare combination that I aspire to achieve as a performer.

You are a living legend who is worthy of awe!

Thank you for encouraging me and seeing me as the entertainer I am.

I know I’m a gUrL but when I watched your videos, I never wanted to be the girl in them, I wanted to be YOU.

Thank you for making a dream come true.
