Cardi B Praised Usher
In a heartfelt tweet she posted on Friday, the Bronx bombshell presented the R&B legend with flowers (September 9).
She wrote, “I’m so glad @Usher is getting the love he deserves. Y’all were trying him for a couple years but I’m glad he overcame that because he is a LEGEND.”
I’m so glad @Usher is getting the love he deserves. Y’all were trying him for a couple years but I’m glad he overcame that because he is a LEGEND.
The singer, who was born in Atlanta, has been reluctant to wear the R&B crown but graciously accepted the hotly contested title of King of R&B in an August interview with Bevy Smith.
Usher responded, “I mean, you call me that, I’ll definitely carry it.” “I’m a tilt my crown knowing that I’m standing on the shoulders of all of the icons of our time. It is Michael [Jackson] that I stand on the shoulders of, it is James Brown that I stand on the shoulders of, it is Ronald Isley I stand on the shoulders of, it is Luther Vandross, it is Barry White, it is Teddy Pendergrass.”
“As long as there is breath in my body to breathe, it is all of these amazing musicians like Marvin Gaye that will never be forgotten,” he concluded. It’s all of them. And as a result, you want to award me the crown? Tell me who will perform it more effectively.
As Chris Brown’s rivalry with Usher is hotly anticipated by fans, Usher doesn’t see much value in taking part in a Verzuz fight either.
To be honest, he said, “I don’t even think a Verzuz could manage all of the music that I have. I think if you ever came to my show, you would understand, I feel like I could accomplish it alone. I don’t want to do that, though. That’s not the purpose of Verzuz, me versus me.”
Fans are still waiting for Cardi B’s sophomore album, which she has promised will be released in 2022.
On Friday, September 9, Cardi appeared at the back-to-school event hosted by the nonprofit Community Capacity Development, surprising a group of NYC kids.
She told FOX5 that “It’s all about the kids.”
