Usher just shook up the TikTok scene with a recent upload paying homage to Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen. Wrap your head around this – Usher diving into the world of anime on TikTok. 2024 is off to a wild start.
Giving you a bit of context, Usher’s track “Daddy’s Home” earned its stripes as the unofficial theme for Gojo. Fan edits and TikToks flooded the internet, featuring his song in all its glory. The JJK fandom took it up a notch, practically bombarding Usher to perform the track and bring out Gojo in his upcoming show.
After weeks of fans hounding his social media for Gojo, Usher finally listened. Who would’ve pegged Usher as an anime buff? It’s a victory, especially for Black anime enthusiasts and R&B lovers. This crossover is turning out to be a pleasant surprise for 2024.
Now, the burning question: Is this a sneak peek for his Super Bowl performance? I’m pretty skeptical about it. The Super Bowl audience isn’t exactly the anime crowd, but hey, if it did happen, it could be a huge pop culture moment. Usher’s already in the spotlight recently with his remix to Jung Kook‘s massive hit Standing Next To You. Not to mention, female football fans are locked in! Will he drop the anime bomb during his Super Bowl performance on February 11, 2024, at Super Bowl LVIII? Only time will tell. The halftime show might just have an unexpected twist.
