Usher thanked Rihanna for her support ahead of his Super Bowl performance.

The singer is following in Rihanna’s footsteps by performing at the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show, and he’s thanked the chart-topping star for her recent show of support.

In response to a video message from the Fenty founder, “Real recognize real Thank U Queen @rihanna,” Usher wrote on X.

In the video, Rihanna hailed Usher as a “legend.”

“I can’t give Usher no advice. Usher is a natural, he’s a legend and he’s been doing this since he’s a teenager,” Rihanna replied when asked if she had any tips for him.

The “Umbrella” hitmaker also believes he’s perfectly suited to performing the halftime show.

“He’s made for that show. I get excited about entertainers who do this, who are built for it. And he just proved that in Vegas that he’s not going anywhere,” she said.

Meanwhile, Rihanna previously revealed that she “totally forgot about Valentine’s Day” before her Super Bowl performance.

The star has been with A$AP Rocky since 2020, but the Super Bowl became the focus of her attention ahead of her performance in February.

“I’ve been so focused on the Super Bowl, I totally forgot that my birthday is coming up,” she told CBS. “I totally forgot about Valentine’s Day. I am just like Super Bowl, Super Bowl, Super Bowl. It’s a lot of preparation, a lot of moving parts.”

“This is the week that it really is being tested,” Rihanna continued. “Everyone, we’re just tightening up everything. Everybody is dialing in; everybody is tuning up. And a lot of moving parts. I mean, it’s literally like three to four hundred people breaking the stage down and building it back up and getting it out in eight minutes. It’s incredible. It’s almost impossible.”
