For two decades, Usher has dominated in his lane and beyond.

To celebrate his lengthy list of achievements, the superstar singer will be presented with a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Full story below…

In a great case of synchronization, the ceremony will take place on September 7th; one week before the release of his 8th album ‘Hard II Love.’

The 37-year-old will receive the 2,588th star on the legendary strip for his services to the recording industry.

Speaking on the honor, Ana Martinez (Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies) said…

“Usher is one of the most successful artists of our modern music world. We are proud to welcome him to the Hollywood Walk of Fame”

This is unquestionably deserved — and is arguably overdue.

Over the course of his illustrious career, Ush has sold 65-million albums worldwide; he also has won 8 Grammys, earned 9 Billboard #1’s, and has seen his ‘Confessions’ album ranked the top solo project of the 2000’s. Said LP is also Diamond certified by the RIAA.

His name is already cemented in the history books and now his star will follow suit on the Walk of Fame.

Congratulations!

[Keep it locked on TGJ for a live stream of the festivities next Wednesday!]

    ABOUT EFFIN TIME! Where’s his vanguard award?! There will never be another rnb singer like him who did his type of sales album wise .!he gets over looked just cos he’s not as popular as he was late 90s/00s! They need to give beyonce her own star too as she’s the biggest superstar in the last 20years

  7. lisa September 3, 2016

    Congradulation Usher

  9. Terny September 3, 2016

    Isn’t this too soon? even for him? I expect peeps like Mary J blige, R Kelly, Brandy, Monica & Maybe Beyoncé; to be awarded their own stars 1st before someone like Usher It just seems too soon.. Like maybe wait another 10 years.. ??

    • Rylee September 3, 2016

      Are you kidding? Usher debuted in 1994. Have you seen the names on the blvd? He deserves his star.

    • Coolnesss September 3, 2016

      Mary, yes, I agree with. Same for Robert but we all know why he’d never receive such an honor. However, for you to say Usher doesn’t deserve it but then list names like Brandy and Monica who came out around the same time as him (’94/’95) is kinda strange. Zero shade to both ladies but their run of commercial success was no where near as long as his.

    • Caleb September 3, 2016

      Huh? Some of those artists you mentioned came out around the same time as Usher and have sold way less. You think Monica should have a star before Usher?!

    • Noah September 6, 2016

      U have 0 clue about Usher, lmao. Do ur research kid. It’s a little too early for u to be reading these blogs.

  10. No favs, just here for the music September 3, 2016

    Finally and very well deserved! Congratulations!!

  11. Rap September 3, 2016

    Confessions sold 20 all the orhers didnt do 10mil each. Just stop

  12. FC/JC September 3, 2016

    I approve this

  13. s.a September 4, 2016

    After this MTV should also honour him. But i think R.Kelly also deserves a star and a honour cuz he is the 1 who has given birth to all these cats

  14. Nowqd Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi September 4, 2016

    Good for him.

  15. MusicLife September 6, 2016

    They say as your career begins to tank that’s when you purchase your star. Indio g so in hopes of rejuvenating your career. I was just there yesterday looking at the stars.

    For that reason I wish Usher would wait least 5 more years. I think he still has some greatness in him, and could wait to get his star.

    Nonetheless congrats!
