Usher Reveals He, JAY-Z, Diddy & Pharrell Were Almost A Supergroup

Usher has revealed that he almost formed a supergroup with JAY-Z, Diddy and Pharrell.

During an interview with Shannon Sharpe on the former NFL star’s Club Shay Shay podcast, the singer told a story about the ultimate Hip Hop-R&B hybrid that never was.

Usher said he, Hov, Puffy and Skateboard P went as far as discussing the business side of things, but the idea never panned out as they all got “distracted.”

JAY-Z, Pharrell, Diddy and me were supposed to be a group,” he said. “Yeah, that’s crazy. I didn’t say ‘No.’ I didn’t say ‘Yeah.’ I think that we just got caught up. I think we all got caught up in the moment.

“We was talking about it and having secret meetings about it. We were talking about music and how we gon’ flip it and the business of it. And somehow, man, we just got distracted and it never happened.”

He added: “That’s the one I actually wish would have happened.”

Usher is set to headline the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show on February 11 at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, where the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

JAY-Z, who has helped the NFL produce the past four Super Bowl halftime shows in his role as a consultant for the league, was the one who informed Usher he would be performing.
