Usher hits joke on capacity crowd at Raleigh’s Dorothea Dix Park by teasing Beyoncé guest appearance.

The 2023 Dreamville Fest kicked off on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina, Usher Raymond, who headlined last night's festivity. On Saturday night (April 1), the R&B singer trolled the festival crowd during his set with an April Fool’s joke, claiming that he was about to bring out Beyoncé to perform.

“I said I would have a special surprise for you tonight, should I tell you what that surprise is? Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, put your hands together for the one, and only, Beyoncé,” Usher announced as the crowd screamed in approval.

The Dreamville Fest crowd instantly went wild while waiting for the Renaissance artist to walk onto stage. But after a few seconds of Usher pretending to encourage Queen Bey to come out, he returned to the mic to say, "April Fools!”

Check out the footage below:


Dreamville Fest in Raleigh, North Carolina continues Sunday (April 2) with Summer Walker, JID, Glorilla, Burna Boy, Waka Flocka Flame and the night’s main event, J. Cole and Drake together onstage.

You can watch the Livestream festival here later tonight.
