Usher Puts Verzuz Comparisons to Rest With "Tiny Desk" Concert

At last, Usher’s nostalgic Tiny Desk concert is finally here! Fans have been (impatiently) waiting for the Grammy-winning icon to grace NPR’s beloved D.C. music desk.

“I’m just hoping to really, really have fun today in this office party,” Usher said at the start of his self-described “gumbo” set — and fun is exactly what we had.
