R&B singer Usher has decided to floss a new hairstyle in 2019.

The Grammy-winning singer, who was born 40 years ago in Dallas before establishing his musical legacy in Atlanta, hopped on Instagram Live to show off his new perm and haircut. It is a very similar style that the “It’s Going Down” rapper Young Joc rocked on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” in 2017.

Usher let fans know right up front on the IG Live post that this was a new look that he wanted to rock and he is not concerned about what they might think about it.

“Something new, something to look at,” Usher told the viewers.

Usher explained that it took a lot to achieve his hair, but it makes him look and feel good as if he’s a “pimp” or the “Black Superman.”

Perhaps this was the “U Got it Bad” singer’s way to change things up for the new year after he filed for divorce from his estranged wife, Grace Miguel.

As rolling out previously reported, the couple officially separated early last year after numerous allegations surfaced about the “Confessions” singer’s sexual proclivities and allegedly having an STD.

In a joint statement, Usher and Miguel said:

“After much thought and consideration, we have mutually decided to separate as a couple. We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”

The Instagram Live post has since been deleted but was captured on YouTube by AUC. Check out Usher stunting with his new perm.
