Usher Angers Fourth of July Crowd with Selfish Set List

Usher Angers Fourth of July Crowd with Selfish Set List

Usher served as the “curator” for the national Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks event in New York yesterday.

The R&B star apparently served up a bit too much of himself for the crowd’s tastes.

The playlist, which is available on Spotify, also included songs by Rihanna,Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton with Miranda Lambert. However, of the 13 tracks, four were songs which were either Usher’s own songs, or songs featuring Usher’s vocals. 

Those in the crowd tweeted their irritation, noting that he “hijacked” Macy’s show with his own music. Some fans were also upset by the non-traditional musical choices, including Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
