Keke Palmer recalled a July night at Usher’s residency in Las Vegas when the Confessions singer serenaded her with a performance of “There Goes My Baby.” The hot video showed Keke dancing next to Usher, who had entered the audience to court the actress, while donning a see-through black lace dress and undergarment.

Darius Jackson rushed to Twitter to express his unimpressed response to his girlfriend’s attire as the video immediately went popular on social media. He tweeted:

“It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is.

“This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”

The Nope star makes an appearance in the clip sporting a full-beat face and blue and black hair and seemed poised to take the moment. Meanwhile, Usher sings:

 “Somebody say that your boyfriend’s looking for me.”

Fans reacted hilariously to Usher and Keke turning their Sin City drama into a seemingly chaotic music video after the excerpt was posted, and many of them went to the comments section to give their funny thoughts. Another commenter referred to the video as “impeccable marketing” and said Keke Palmer’s boyfriend, Darius Jackson, “is somewhere punching the air.”
