Saweetie has opened up about being on the receiving end of a mid-show serenade from Usher during his Vegas residency, admitting that it threw her for a loop and she wasn’t ready for it.
In an interview with the Justin Credible podcast shared on Thursday (July 27), Saweetie said she was “caught off guard” by the R&B star’s swooning — which is something he’s been doing a lot with numerous notable women in recent months — as he sang “There Goes My Baby” to her earlier this month.
“Since I’ve been in the studio, I don’t be online, so I didn’t even know he did stuff like that,” Saweetie admitted. “So my honest response was I was caught off guard. I was like, ‘Ok, what we doing?’”
