Usher has been making headlines with his most recent Las Vegas residency, which took a pause in July and will return to the Park MGM in October. During one of the final dates of his latest run, the R&B legend had a moment with Keke Palmer—one that generated controversy due to a certain outfit and a reaction from Darius Jackson, the father of Palmer’s child. In response, the 29-year-old actress made it clear that she’s going to live her life as she sees fit.

On Tuesday, August 15, it was revealed that a new song was created out of the aforementioned drama. Taking to social media, Keke Palmer unveiled a teaser for “Boyfriend,” a collaborative song with Usher that’s set to be released on Wednesday, August 16. In the clip, both artists appear to be preparing for a meetup in their respective rooms. “Somebody said that your boyfriend’s looking for me,” the “My Way” star croons as he walks down a dimly lit hallway.

2. Davido and Latto tease a musical collaboration

On Monday night, American rapper Latto posted photos on Twitter of her and Davido eating in the studio. Earlier this month, Latto was one of the international celebrities who reacted to Davido’s song “Unavailable.” So it was to the delight of his fans that the duo are in the booth together.

Since the photos went up, rumors that Latto would be featured on one of the remixes of “Unavailable” have been circulating. The “Unavailable” song is undoubtedly one of Davido’s biggest hits off his latest album “Timeless,” and having a rapidly rising star like Latto is only going to make the music reach more ears.

4. Pheelz reacts as Chelsea uses his song to announce new signing, Caicedo

Nigerian producer and singer Phillip Kayode Moses, popularly known as Pheelz, has relished Premier League giants Chelsea using his hit song “Finesse” to announce their latest signing, Moises Caicedo. Recall that the Blues signed Caicedo to a British record deal from Brighton on Monday. Chelsea posted a video of the 21-year-old midfielder and his mother having a beautiful moment with “Finesse” by Pheelz featuring BNXN playing in the background. Reacting via his Twitter handle, Pheelz wrote, “Not @ChelseaFC using my song to announce the most expensive signing in the EPL right now! Burst my head.”

5. Pep Guardiola confirms ‘serious injury’ for Kevin De Bruyne and reveals how long he’ll be out for

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has a serious hamstring injury, and the club will have to decide whether or not he undergoes surgery. De Bruyne has been ruled out of action for several months by Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola. The Belgian midfielder suffered a hamstring injury in City’s Premier League opener against Burnley, and Guardiola revealed that the club is deciding whether or not to recommend that the player undergo surgery to treat the problem. De Bruyne snapped his hamstring in the Champions League final and was unable to feature in any of City’s pre-season matches. He came off the bench in the Community Shield against Arsenal and then started against Burnley. After that game, Guardiola admitted he may have made a mistake in bringing him back into the team so soon.

“Kevin De Bruyne’s injury is a serious one. He will be out for a few months,” Guardiola told a press conference before the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla. “We have to decide in the next days on surgery but for sure we lose Kevin for some time. We will decide in the next days. Surgery is surgery – three or four months out. The injury for Kevin is a blow, a big loss. He has specific qualities. For a long time is really tough for us. We have to look forward. We have alternatives. Kevin is irreplaceable, but we have talented players. They will take it.”
