Usher Brings Out Offset for Surprise ‘Bad and Boujee’ Performance During Paris Residency Show

Usher‘s Rendez-Vous Á Paris residency at La Seine Musicale may be coming to a close on Oct. 5, but the “Confessions” singer is making sure to treat fans to some special surprises as he nears the end of his eight-date run — and that includes a surprise performance with Offset.

In a clip posted to Usher’s Instagram page on Sunday (Oct. 1), the Grammy-winner directed the packed crowd as they chanted “that s—t cray” at the top of their lungs — a nod to Kanye West’s verse in his Jay Z-assisted 2011 hit single “N—-s in Paris,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. After completing the chant, the “Good Good” singer then said, “OK, well that’s what it feels like when New York is in the house, but when the South run it, we Southern n—-s in Paris!”

Migos 2017 No. 1 hit “Bad and Boujee” then began to play as Offset joined Usher onnstage after entering through the crowd. In the caption for his Instagram post, Usher remixed a lyric from the song, writing “We from the SOUTH yeah THAT WAY 👉🏾👉🏾.”

Offset’s surprise performance comes just a little over a week before the arrival of his forthcoming sophomore studio album, Set It Off. The record — his first solo outing since 2019’s Grammy-nominated Father of 4 — is set to feature the Cardi B-featuring “Jealousy,” which peaked at No. 55 on the Hot 100 a few months ago, as well as “FAN,” which recently received a Michael Jackson-inspired music video complete with a Kai Cenat cameo.

Usher, on the other hand, is gearing up for months of live performances. When he returns from Paris, the iconic singer will resume his My Way Las Vega residency, which has shows lined up through October, November and the beginning of December. On Feb. 11, 2024, the R&B superstar will take the Super Bowl Halftime Show stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the first time the big game will be played in that city.

Last week (Sept. 26), Billboard exclusively reported that Usher is planning to launch a global tour following his Super Bowl performance, with tickets ready for purchase just after he finishes his final note. In addition to the tour, Usher has already confirmed the release of his ninth solo studio album, Coming Home, which is slated for a Feb. 11, 2024, release and includes the chart-topping single “Good Good” (with Summer Walker and 21 Savage).
