Swizz Beatz has responded to the criticism surrounding Usher and Alicia Keys’ intimate rendition of “My Boo” at the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show. In the performance, Usher displayed affection towards Alicia by hugging her from behind and bringing her in close, while Alicia actively engaged in the performance and seemed to be enjoying herself.
Viewers later took to X to comment about how Swizz must feel watching his wife and Usher engage in an intimate dance in public.
But the American record producer and rapper seemed unperturbed and he told fans to stop talking about the “wrong damn thing.”
He wrote: “Y’all don’t see that amazing dress covering the entire stadium. Tonight’s performance was nothing but amazing with 2 amazing Giants!”
Swizz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, added alongside an Instagram carousel of photos of the performance. “Congrats @usher and my love @aliciakeys that song is a classic,”
