If his latest sartorial choice is any indication, Usher must have seen all of the excitement that his future “Voice” colleague Pharrell created when he debuted his Vivienne Westwood hat at the Grammys in January.
The singer made similar waves Monday night on NBC’s “The Voice” when he donned an attention-grabbing coonskin cap. It wasn’t the first time that Ush has worn the furry hat, but it seems to have cemented his intention to make the accessory an essential part of his 2014 persona.
The first public appearance of the piece can be traced back to a picture he posted on his Instagram account on February 21, accompanied by the caption “Hats off to U. #howurockit.”
A few days later, the R&B star was seen wearing the fluffy top at a press event for season six of “The Voice,” on which he currently serves as a celebrity judge. Later that night, he wore it during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
All was then quiet on the coonskin cap front — until Chris Brown’s “Loyalty” video dropped last week. Usher had the briefest of cameos in the spot, but if you were able to spot him riding up an escalator with Breezy, that means you spotted his hat too.
What’s next for the cap? We’ll have to wait and see, but odds are this won’t be the last we see of Usher’s coonskin cap.
