Lawd somebody check on Darius! Keke Palmer and Usher are about to take things up a notch with a new video teased to be ‘coming soon’.
According to UPROXX on July 4, Palmer’s estranged boyfriend, Darius Jackson, fueled haters online when he blasted her for her clothing choice while attending Usher’s Las Vegas residency.
Quickly after, the multi-hyphenate entertainer declared she was “Stevie [Wonder] to the bullsh*t,” backlash she received from her wardrobe and her harmless dance with Usher onstage.
Now, Palmer took to social media to reveal that she will be in Usher’s official video for his single “Boyfriend.”
In the record’s trailer, Palmer and Usher seemingly recreated their pre-stage moments as the pair dressed in the flyest pieces heading out for an epic evening.
and Usher’s promo:

Following weeks of online chatter, Usher finally addressed the moment with People on August 4.
“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. 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 a conversation about that song,” said Usher.
