It seems Usher has given us our first “new hair, who dis” moment of 2019. The R&B singer debuted a new look on Instagram live that is giving us retro Four Tops vibes.

Appearing to take notes from Yung Joc’s mane moves a couple of years ago, Usher ditched his cornrows for a silkened permed and bumped pompadour with shaved sides.


Fans, of course, had jokes, saying he looked like a “dark-skinned Mexican” or the sixth member of the Five Heartbeats.

Usher, however, seems unbothered, posting a series of IG pics showing off his “Rat Pack 2019” ‘do.

We’re not sure if the look is for a new role or if he just wanted to change things up. Either way, we’re still on the fence. Are you feeling it? Sound off below!
