Usher Busts a Move in Honey Nut Cheerios Commercial

Usher

Following Nelly, Usher is the latest superstar to bumble with the bee in a commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios. The R&B singer fist bumps Buzz the SpokesBee and dances along to his own single “She Came to Give It to You” in the 30-second spot called “Body Language.”

The famous bee may have also leaked the title of Usher’s upcoming album. According to Billboard, the original video featured a graphic that said “From the album UR.”

Shortly after, the video was removed and replaced with another clip without the title. A rep for Usher said the UR album title is not yet confirmed.

But one thing is certain. Usher will perform his Pharrell-produced single with Nicki Minaj at Sunday’s VMAs.

Chris’ album X is due September 16 featuring Nicki Minaj (“Love More”) and Kendrick Lamar (“Autumn Leaves”), with production from Timbaland, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy.
