Throughout 2023, Cenat has been making significant strides in his career, gaining attention and even receiving a Christmas present from Ice Spice. The present, a branded chia pet, left Cenat delighted, though he humorously noted it didn't resemble Spice too closely. Despite the slight confusion, he appreciated the gift from the high-profile rapper.
Alongside the collaboration hint, Usher unveiled the inaugural trailer for his eagerly awaited Super Bowl Halftime Show, aptly named "One Performance, 30 Years in the Making." This one-minute teaser pays homage to Usher's illustrious career, featuring a captivating array of fans and celebrities performing his timeless 2004 hit, "Yeah."
The revelation of Usher headlining the Super Bowl came in September 2023, marked by a distinctive NFL skit featuring Kim Kardashian. Notably, the grand event is set against the backdrop of Las Vegas, a city where Usher recently concluded a successful residency late last year.
Excitingly, Usher revealed that Super Bowl Sunday (February 11) will coincide with the release of his long-awaited ninth studio album, "Coming Home." This marks his first studio album since "Hard II Love" in 2016, with the only extended project in the interim being 2018's collaborative album with Zaytoven, titled "A."
The convergence of Usher's Super Bowl performance and album release adds to the anticipation surrounding his return to the music scene. Fans and industry insiders alike eagerly await the culmination of "One Performance, 30 Years in the Making" and the release of "Coming Home."
As Usher continues to build excitement around his upcoming endeavors, the collaboration with Kai Cenat adds another layer of anticipation for both hip-hop enthusiasts and fans of the R&B icon.
