As the two leading R&B heavyweights of the 21st century, Usher and Chris Brown are frequently and endlessly pitched against other.
This is why a video of Usher eulogising his junior colleague during a recent show where Usher brought out Chris Brown over the weekend has lighted up the internet.
Breezy performed as a special guest at his residency event in Las Vegas. Usher made sure to deliver Chris Brown his flowers in front of the thousands in attendance at the MGM Grand venue before CB left the stage during his guest appearance, which included performances of “Back to Sleep (Remix),” “Heat,” and “Under the Influence.”
“I love you, for life. You a great. You’re a legend,” Usher told Breezy. “We love you and gon’ continue to keep uplifting you, bro. I love you more.”
He added on Instagram: “Legend.”
The celebration continued on Friday, October 14, when Usher received a surprise 44th birthday celebration from Amazon Music at the Nomad Library in Sin City.
Jermaine Dupri, Floyd Mayweather, and Anita Baker all made appearances in addition to Chris Brown.
Chris Brown only views it as a fit if it’s more of a celebration than a battle, despite the fact that fans have long wanted Usher and Chris Brown to square off on the Verzuz stage.
“They want me to do it with Usher,” he said last year. “It only makes sense, but it’s got to make more sense. I can’t act like he ain’t a pioneer as well– that’s Usher. I think it would be something good for the fans.”
