R&B is a language for lovers, and a good reason for that is how authentic the songs are delivered to us by way of the men and women belting out the ballads. However, music is comprised of metaphors and oftentimes sung by artists that may not always subscribe to the themes in their own lyrics — we doubt Tevin Campbell really wanted to know that girl’s name!

Nonetheless, R&B king Usher decided to blur the lines between reality and fiction with the release of his new music video for “Boyfriend” starring Keke Palmer. You may remember, the two were at the peak of a viral pseudo-entanglement last month when she attended a show at his My Way The Las Vegas Residency dressed in a see-through dress that wasn’t too appeasing for her now-ex boyfriend, Darius Daulton / Jackson.

We hate to be the ones to tell ol’ boy, but they sure do seem to be cooking up some serious chemistry in these new visuals. Take a look below and let us know what you think:

While we assume things are 100% platonic between Ursh and Keke, the “Boyfriend” video did remind us of the many examples over the years of singers getting extra sultry on camera. When the vibe is right and the sounds of love are searing through the speakers, there’s no telling what can happen between two passionate souls. Whether they actually ended up together (see: Bobby & Whitney; Womack & Womack) or simply kept our imaginations going on what could’ve been (see: Toni & Babyface; Marvin & Tammi), one thing made clear to the world was the undeniable chemistry that was almost too believable.
