Usher, Chris Brown, and August Alsina

Usher’s “UR Experience” pulled into L.A.’s Staples Center on Friday night with a slew of surprises. After bringing out Trey Songz in Chicago, the R&B superstar was joined by some more of his R&B brothers including Chris Brown, Jeremih, and August Alsina.

Kid Ink was up first, hitting the stage for their collaboration “Body Language” before Jeremih turned up on the remix to DJ Khaled’s “Hold You Down” and his own top 10 hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

After opening for Usher earlier in the evening, August returned for “I Luv This Shit” with a surprise appearance from Chris Brown, who was greeted with roaring applause. Breezy then delved into “Loyal” while August captured the moment on his iPhone.

“Breezy, I don’t think they’re ready to turn all the way up,” said Usher before the two launched into their X hit “New Flame.” They wowed with their slick moves, and Usher showed off his abs, before hugging it out.

Lorde Covers Jeremih’s ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’


You’ve heard Jeremih’s single “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” but never quite like this. During her visit to BBC Radio 1 “Live Lounge,” Lorde put her unique spin on the DJ Mustard-produced hit, which remains in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 18-year-old New Zealand singer and her band gave the club banger a dark and eery makeover, and showed off her dance moves in the studio.

Lorde explained why she chose to cover the song. “I have basically been a really big fan of this song since I first started hearing it,” she said. “I love the vocal melodies. I think they’re really smart and just consider them cool. It’s quite a saucy song and I think it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine.”

She also performed her single “Yellow Flicker Beat” off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, due November 17. Lorde curated the star-studded lineup, which includes Ariana Grande, Pusha T, Q-Tip, Miguel, Tinashe, Grace Jones, and more.
