Keri Hilson, Usher

Usher Raymond celebrated his 40th birthday with friends and family at the Gold Room in Atlanta. The R&B crooner released his ninth studio album A last week.

Usher made a surprise announcement on social media on Thursday. The album was produced by Zaytoven and inspired by trap music.

Usher's guests included former singer Keri Hilson who never strayed more than a few feet away from the crooner. The 2 singers danced the night away in the VIP area.

After the party, Usher hopped into a blue Lamborghini driven by an unidentified female.

    I saw Usher a few weeks ago at Quincy Jones Birthday tribute. He looked relaxed,rejuvenated, and content. He never ages.
    Btw it will be airing in December...

    Sooo this lady I work with has a nasty cold sore on her lip... I know I unintentionally give her the stank face when I have to look at her. I wish she would put one of those little stickers over it.

    I can't be the only one who can't control their facial expressions.

  • TMW

    Usher’s needs to let his music grow up. I could not get through one track on that album, and I love Usher’s music.

  • TMW

    I just wrote kinda the same thing ?

  • kekeb

    Keri Wilson BAD!

  • kekeb

    Beyonce probably stopped that too ?

  • kekeb

    Yeah that was a very good look. I honestly always thought she was slightly above average, BUT this look right here solidified her "BAD" status in my book!! She looks incredible

  • I Run New York

    Yup, they're divorcing.

  • I Run New York

    Straight trash

  • TMW

    I tried, I really did.

  • TMW

  • TMW

    Protecting her assets. If they are divorced, she can’t be named in the civil suits.

  • Soon2BWife

    Drop Dead! She is giving me 70’s Foxy Brown gorg!

  • Soon2BWife

    ???

  • bigtyme

    I am 39 and was more bothered by the fact usher turned 40 than by the cd. First listen I thought...this fool is having a midlife crisis...second listen..ok it’s alright...3rd...there are some hammers on here. It was in celebration of his bday so traditional rb ballads wouldn’t work for that. However, the best song on the EP was the rb song lol

  • bemetoo

    so we just gone ignore the fact that it's a bunch of walking std's celebrating each other

  • Meme

    "bunch of hard legs" lol

  • Meme

    All im thinking is has he passed it onto her yet? yikes!

  • FukkFolks2018

    They can celebrate all they want. It's only one ICON there. His name is Usher Raymond. Std or nah.

    Da 4th.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Just saw 41 here. Same feeling. I loved it on re listen. But my 24 yo been a fan all her LIFE. She been bumping it ALL weekend. He was her first concert.

    Opening for him? Kanye West?

  • FukkFolks2018

    My 24 yo loved it. So did her 29 yo bff. So Maybe young adults? Not sure. It was okay. He pushing it but he still got an audience.

  • MRiGOThim

  • Melinated Goddess??

    Happy Birthday Usher!

    You've been bae since elementary school. I had the "My Way " cassette and CD. Miss when you walked around rocking your U chain, skully and boxers. Memories.

  • Logan Roberts

    I see Keri's scammer boyfriend wasn't invited ?

  • ALLMINE?

  • Jussjess25

  • Peppermint Patty

    Oh man I have so much to dissect about this fake frenzied spectacle but I'm going to just say is that the "I just wanna roll-ie" little boy with dem neon braids in the background of that 3rd pic? If so he is searching for an escape from the 30 and uppers....happy 40th!....I hate your halfway point was riddled with scandal....way to take lemons and make trap r&b....

  • IamAllnatural

    My same exact thought. All that hair makes her look older, but she looks fabulous.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    At first glance I thought she was Ciara

  • IamAllnatural

    She’s too young for him, he only likes cougars.

  • Vonn

    ??

  • chaisun

    She also came from money as well. ?????

  • Kay the Virgo ?

    Gahh ? Usher looks so damn good ? The new album is ? imo! Hey Ms Keri Baby! Looking gorgeous as usual girl

  • imright

    HAPPY BDAY USHER ?? ALBUM IS ???

  • T Willis

    Lol y’all need to stop lying ?, Keri does not look good. She looks a hot dayum mess. There is nothing remotely sexy or cute about her or that dated ensemble. Stop.

    As far as Usher, I can’t see him without thinking about Herpes. I wish him the best, but I have no interest in him or his music.

  • Malai

    Hilson ???

  • Wayup!

    That Lynda Carter esque outfit is an absolute no for me ?...

  • the guest

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

  • SpillyNillie

    Ms. Keri looks cute but she lost me at the shoes...

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I think she's a cutie, but you know damn well Keri ain't got no team??

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Im pretty sure that that lady drove him right to the house of one of the guys at the party lol

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Sandra did you use a snapchat filter on Usher's shirt?! Me no likey! Keri is a beautiful woman. But no! i am not understanding the orange sun visor hat, the open shirt, showing the beige non dis-script bra, with closed toe shoes!! Denim does not go with everything, at the same time..was this a themed party?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the outfit sucked!!!! was she pranked?

  • Carrington

    He ain't aging well.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I hate the album! it's complete TRASH. Sorry, not sorry. It sounds desperate. Don't come off a herpes scandal, with trap music mentioning SEX.....take me back to the usher of the 90s. I want your crooning confessions. I don't want to twerk with ursher.

  • Quitedeliteful

    That is a really nice car!

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful

    Ya Auntie is the Master of Shade!!

  • teather

    Stop commenting on herpes, Folks. Most of ALL people have it or have been exposed to it. They lie to everyone so that the general public doesn't panic about it. If sex were dangerous, for real, ppl may not engage in all the stuff that it supports: porn, alcohol, online dating, whatever. Herpes is more common than a cold (sore), HA! No pun intended. More than half of ppl have herpes simplex 1 and even more have Simplex 2. Stop the madness and be aware rather than beating him up for being common.

  • Dee

    He looks great.

  • Solstice

    Lol. You are so right!! I forgot ???

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Aun-TEA @realsandrarose:disqus , Is Ush still married?

  • Chuck

    Usher should come out of that closet of his.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Let it burn Usher is gon

  • Alextra Ballard

    Oh that boyfriend who she said was not her boyfriend. Chiile...

  • Branch Davidian

    I was hoping he was gonna call his album "The Valtrex Diaries" or " Chili gives me Gas" or " Married to my Grandma"....I love this dude's music but his life is a meme...

  • Sassie

    This is a fact. My doctor told me that, too. So every time I look at ANYONE I always wonder do they have herpes, since SO MANY people have it. This is why safe sex is so important and putting your mouth on random genitalia is just stupid. You don't know WHAT somebody got nowadays. My doc also said that breakouts are minimal as long as you're not too stressed out, so a lot of folks walking around with no symptoms, but yet they STILL technically have it. Be careful out here, peeps.

  • Sassie

    Keri is gorg in the face, but that's where it ends.

  • EasyBreezy

    Why can I not stop laughing at this comment?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Drop it, Sista!

  • the guest

    Compared to old Usher, the album is disappointing. I don’t know what made him go the trap route because Usher is a sound and style all to himself.

  • the guest

    Are we afraid to say karma. Usher was kind of a real mf especially to women when he was on top.

  • Quitedeliteful

    So true... I can't see him doing trap music at all.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    The CD is godawful thank goodness for Confessions.

  • Wayup!

    Sad..?

  • EMILY POST

    At least we have a entertainer that really loves being black and black people... not just riding a wave..
    They are not giving usher any promotion the record companies because the public didn’t even really know he has a album out.. I haven’t heard a song on radio.

  • kekeb

    Yeah she has managed to refrain from a "whorish" reputation! And she pretty much manages to be tastefully clothed yet sexy. And she is SMART!!!! Too bad ALLLLL of that was overshadowed by a stupid dis-record. SMH. I want her to pubicly apologize to Beyonce (ON HOLLYWOOD UNLOCKED, VLAD TV, OR SOME BLOG W/VIDEO). Then Beyonce should accept and they should do a record together. She'll make more money from that one song than probably her entire career. (That's how it would go in my mind).
