R&B ringleader Usher has long stood a solo symbol of the R&B divo – outlasting many of his 90’s male (and female) contemporaries to usher in chart-topping albums and singles over several genres. While able to claim the title of one of the most successful male solo acts of all time, the singer has still found time to lay his recognizable falsetto over many-a-rapper’s hooks and hits.
But, some may not know of his oft-under praised duets with singing co-stars.
On the heels of today’s ‘Lemme See’ video release (which features Rick Ross) and news the singer was set to duet with the late Amy Winehouse shortly before her death, That Grape Juice looks to salute Ush’s smoother musical couplings with some of R&B’s leading divas – Beyonce, Brandy, Alicia Keys, and Omarion. Get into old favorites and new acquaintances below:
Usher & R. Kelly – ‘Same Girl’
Usher & Brandy – ‘Who Is She 2 U’ (Remix)
Usher & Alicia Keys – ‘My Boo’
Usher & Beyonce – ‘Love In This Club’ (Part 2)
Usher & Monica – ‘Slow Jam’
Usher & Omarion – ‘IceBox’ (remix)
Usher & Alicia Keys – ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ (Remix)
Usher’s latest album may have already hit stores this week, but here’s hoping the singer has many more duets like the aforementioned up his sleeve.
