In case you somehow missed the drama, the 29-year-old – who recently gave birth to her first child – enjoyed a fun night out with pals, and stopped by Usher’s Las Vegas residency, where he took the opportunity to serenade her.
Those words were clearly ringing in Keke’s mind as she danced throughout Usher’s new video, surrounded by pals as well as the man himself.
If that wasn’t enough, the clip ended with the Nope actress waking up in bed the morning after, following what appeared to be a wild night in Vegas.
Answering the phone, she could be heard saying: ‘Dammit, I missed the show! S**t, I’m so tired.

‘I’m a mother after all.’
We are in no way worthy of Keke Palmer.
Viewers were thrilled by the not-so subtle dig and flocked to social media to praise the pair for getting the video filmed so quickly.
‘Keke Palmer said, “hang on let me do something iconic in this Usher video real quick,”’ one said.

A follower agreed: ‘The ending… the “I’m a mother, after all”… the wink to the camera.. ya Keke and Usher did that!!! #usherxkeke #usherboyfriend [sic].’
‘I have never been happier to watch a music video. Keke and Usher DID THAT,’ a Twitter user said.
‘Keke Palmer and Usher had the chance to do the funniest s**t ever…AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID,’ a commenter added.

Keke also shared her love for Usher on Twitter, describing the experience as a ‘dream come true’.
‘Usher! I remember when I was 12 and auditioned for “In The Mix”,’ she said. ‘You have been killing it all my life. As a true lover of the arts, your talent and craftsmanship are a rare combination that I aspire to achieve as a performer.
‘You are a living legend who is worthy of awe! Thank you for encouraging me and seeing me as the entertainer I am.
‘I know I’m a gUrL but when I watched your videos, I never wanted to be the girl in them, I wanted to be YOU. Thank you for making a dream come true [sic].’

The Akeelah and the Bee actress has had a rollercoaster few months, after announcing her first pregnancy while hosting SNL last December.
She welcomed baby Leo with Darius in February, but had previously kept their romance well and truly under wraps.
However, their relationship was thrown into the spotlight last month when Keke attended Usher’s Las Vegas residency with a group of friends, dressed impeccably in a sheer black polkadot dress, which exposed a thong bodysuit underneath.
During his performance of There Goes My Baby, Usher couldn’t help but make a beeline for the superstar in the VIP section, with the footage going viral shortly after.
Clearly unimpressed, Darius tweeted: ‘It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom [sic],’ before fuming about ‘standards and morals’.
Fans were furious with the posts, leading to the new dad being forced to delete his social media pages.
