Monáe posted a number of clips to her Instagram on Wednesday (November 22) of the intimate encounter that sent fans in the audience — and later on social media — completely wild.
One clip shows Usher singing “Superstar” with Monáe while they clasp hands and look into each other’s eyes.
Another shows the Confessions crooner and Glass Onion star sipping champagne together while he performs.
The sexy display concluded with Monáe slowly walking away from the R&B legend.
Alongside the clips, she wrote: “We bl(ush)ed in vegas thank you @usher 1 of 1. incredible show.”
Janelle Monáe’s followers on Instagram loved the clips, with comments including: “The Chemistry!!! yep… we gon need a collab soon!”
Another said: “Girl not you becoming the main character in a split second. Girl I love it – YOU GAVE USHER A SHOW!”
Someone else joked: “Y’all just witnessed the moment Usher got pregnant.”
The most notable example, however, is Keke Palmer, whose playful moment with Usher during a show in July caused a rift in her relationship with her now ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson. The actress has since accused Jackson of abuse.
Speaking to GQ earlier this year, Usher said his concerts are aimed at giving his female fans a good time: “I really wanted to give women something to look forward to, something to come here to Las Vegas with their friends for. They’ve been saving up all year and were able to manage to get away from their kids or get away from their problems.”
Usher’s residency in Las Vegas began last July at The Colusseum at Caesar’s Palace, with the show now being held at the Park MGM. The singer’s residency is currently set to end on December 2.
