Usher Pulls April Fool's Joke On Dreamville Fest By Teasing Beyoncé Guest Appearance
On the most dangerous day to trust headlines online, a headlining act had some fun with thousands of adoring fans. Usher just trolled Dreamville Fest during his set with an April Fool's joke, claiming that he was about to bring out Beyoncé to perform. Of course, fans went ballistic when they heard the R&B singer say her name, but it clearly dawned on them that something was wrong when Usher looked back confused at his festival staff. After walking around the stage for a bit, beckoning for someone to come up, he stepped to the mic and crooned, "April Fool's."
Hilariously enough, it wasn't the only prank scare that rocked the North Carolina event, although the other instance proved to be truthful (unless A.I.-generated content has really gone too far). Lil Durk said that he's been collaborating with J. Cole during a sit-down interview at Dreamville Fest. When initial reports of the news came out, fans expressed skepticism until Internet sleuths posted the clip in question. As such, fans now anticipate a hard-hitting product from the two revered hip-hop storytellers.
Usher's April Fool's Prank Leaves Beyoncé Fans Fuming
Furthermore, the Confessions artist went on a bit of a hot streak promotionally recently thanks to a few factors. First, there's his sultry and immaculate Las Vegas residency, during which he serenaded a fan with an intimate performance. To elaborate, he went into a crowd and danced with a fan as he fed her strawberries. Given his status as the "King of R&B" and the smoothness of his music, no one can deny it was quite the remarkable experience for a fan to get. Still, it's not uncommon for Usher to engage with fans during his performances in a sweet and evocative way, and still gives a show for all to remember.
Meanwhile, he recently released the single "GLU," which is a classic, buttery, and passionate R&B cut. With that, he fought back against common takes that the genre is "dead," showing fans and detractors alike that he's still got it. Apart from that prank, it seems like people were blown away by the sheer amount of hits that the 44-year-old played for fans at Dreamville Fest during his great performance. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Usher and this weekend's Dreamville Fest.
