Keke Palmer Stars In New Usher Video Following Viral Las Vegas Serenade
After Usher serenaded Keke Palmer during a performance at his Las Vegas residency, Palmer's ex criticized her for wearing a sheer dress, prompting social media blowback and the video for the new Usher track "Boyfriend."
Keke Palmer and Usher have reconnected after the two made headlines earlier in the summer.
On Wednesday (August 16), Usher debuted the Casino-themed music video for his new single “Boyfriend,” in which Palmer stars. The Nope actress is depicted as preparing for Usher’s concert before an elevator ride turns her into a female version of the singer, as she replicates his dance moves before waking up from the dream. By the end of the 4-minute clip, she lets us in on the gag, saying “I’m a mother, after all,” before revealing a FaceTime call from Usher.
The collaboration with the eight-time Grammy winner comes just one month after Palmer was serenaded by Usher at his Las Vegas residency. However, Darius Daulton, the father of Palmer’s infant son wasn’t a fan of the viral moment, publicly criticizing Palmer for wearing a sheer outfit to the concert.
Although Palmer didn’t give a public response to Daulton’s criticisms, her fans went after Daulton, causing him to temporarily deactivate his Twitter account. Palmer seemingly shaded Daulton in social media posts, launching graphic t-shirts that read “I’m A Motha” and “Stevie to the Bullshit,” in reference to R&B, funk and soul legend Stevie Wonder.
“I think everybody’s vision or a version of what they felt happened there just leads you back to just really having a good time in Las Vegas,” he said. “And that’s what I hope came out of it. Rather, it was a conversation of what was going on with us having fun in front of the audience or conversation about that song.”
“Every night I’m thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I’ll have with whoever I’m choosing to sing to,” he continued. “But it was a pop moment, and it was fun to have at least conversation going and we just keep it light. I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.”
