Report: Usher and Vic Mensa Hire Scooter Braun as Manager
Scooter Braun’s squad just got stronger.
Usher and Vic Mensa are now being managed by Braun, according to Billboard. They join Braun’s current client roster, which includes Justin Bieber, Tori Kelly, Carly Rae Jepsen, Martin Garrix, and the Black Eyed Peas. He also reportedly co-manages Kanye West.
Usher was asked to confirm the news during his Q&A with Ryan Seacrest in Cannes this week. “I’ve always been in the Scooter family,” he said. “We actually have worked together on artists, and worked together in business. So it’s just a continuum.”
Mensa, who is signed to Roc Nation Records, will be co-managed by Braun and Cody Kazarian.
Usher is expected to unleash his new album Flawed later this summer. Plus, he will star as Sugar Ray Leonard in the boxer’s upcoming biopic Hands of Stone. Meanwhile, Mensa is working on his debut studio album after recently unveiling his mixtape There’s Alot Going On.
