Usher's Las Vegas residency has brought forth plenty of memorable moments, but this has to take the cake. Moreover, the R&B superstar spotted 21 Savage in the crowd during his show, telling him, "You know you love singing R&B and s**t." While the Atlanta MC hesitated at first, Usher approached him with a mic and invited him to let his heart fly over his Alicia Keys collab "My Boo," an absolute classic. Although 21 doesn't have the greatest vocal chops in the world, you got to give him some props for being passionate, brave, charismatic, and for performing for a whole arena of fans that paid for nothing but R&B greatness.
Of course, the "My Choppa Hate N***as" MC has often displayed his deep love of soulful rhythm and blues. Just this week, he went on Instagram Live and sang along to Beyoncé's version of the song "I'd Rather Go Blind," originally written by Ellington Jordan and first recorded by the one and only Etta James. 21 Savage's fandom has also manifested into his songs' sample choices, the melodies he chooses, and other factors. However, it wasn't the only event that the 30-year-old popped out at recently.
21 Savage Sings "My Boo" To A Crowd Of Thousands
For Coachella's first weekend, 21 Savage joined Metro Boomin on stage for the latter's stage-closing (and stunning) performance. Alongside fellow Metro collaborators The Weeknd, Diddy, Future, and Don Toliver, the Slaughter Gang head honcho was an energetic and larger-than-life stage presence thanks to the elaborate set-up. Not only did he perform his tracks from the producer's HEROES & VILLAINS, but classic cuts from the Savage Mode series and other Metro collaborations.
In addition to that star-studded display this weekend, 21 Savage previously popped out at the Dreamville Festival during the first weekend of April. In addition, acts like Lil Wayne, GloRilla, and Lil Uzi Vert were surprise additions to the stacked North Carolina festival roster. With all this in mind, it makes so much sense that a few years ago, 21 built (and, to this day, maintained) a reputation as a cold-blooded feature killer. Now that his appearances always seem to excite, entertain, and exceed expectations, that unique artistic ability is clearer than ever. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on 21 Savage and Usher. Also, check out another angle of the R&B team-up down below.
