For decades, USHER has been a cultural icon. He has shaped R&B music by creating timeless hits and working with some of the industry’s top stars. That’s why it’s no surprise the NFL has finally said ‘Yeah!’ to giving USHER his time to shine. And us? We know there’s ‘No Limit’ to what USHER’s going to do. Here are our predictions (and wish list) for songs and collaborations for USHER’s 2024 Super Bowl halftime show!
I’m really happy that I’m joining that short list of legacy artists from my genre who deserve this moment. And I’m really happy that Jay-Z and also to Roc Nation, you know, really put thought into making certain that they could bring to the world this kind of experience. It is definitely going to be a moment to remember.
‘Yeah!’ – USHER (ft. Lil Jon and Ludacris)
This is a USHER classic! A true club anthem from 2004, there’s not one who won’t hit the dancefloor as soon as they hear the iconic line, “Peace up, A-town down!” so we can’t imagine a halftime performance without it! We’ve got our fingers crossed we’ll get to see Lil Jon and Ludacris make an appearance to completely transport us back to the good ‘ole days.
‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love’ – USHER (ft. Pitbull)
Now we all know it wouldn’t be a party without Mr. Worldwide himself. ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love’ was everywhere when it was first released and we’d guarantee it’s still gracing a lot of your throwback playlists to this day. These two were one of the most powerful team-ups of 2010 and we’d give anything to see them together just one more time!
‘OMG’ – USHER (ft. will.i.am)
We’re not exaggerating when we say anything will.i.am touches turns to gold. ‘OMG’ was no exception! Are you even a Gen X or Millennial if you don’t immediately think of this song whenever anyone says, “Oh my gosh?” That’s what we thought. We’re ready to scream this one at the top of our lungs and let this duo blow our minds.
‘Somebody To Love Remix’ – Justin Bieber (ft. USHER)
Hear us out on this one. It’s not an USHER song, we know that, but (maybe this is the Belieber still living inside of us) we know this would be showstopping. Justin has been taking a step back from music lately so we know it might be a little bit of a pipe dream. But, if anyone can bring Justin back to us on a big stage it’d be USHER. Honestly, we’re begging at this point.
As far as discography goes, these are just the tip of the iceberg. USHER has been a consistent hitmaker which means we’re also looking forward to some of his solo smashes like ‘Burn,’ ‘U Remind Me,’ ‘Confessions Pt. II,’ and ‘You Make Me Wanna…’ to name a few. Make sure you brush up on your USHER jams on Apple Music before the big day!
