Tip wasn’t the only Hip-Hop star who showed support for Taylor at the Sunday concert. Nelly and Young Jeezy have also paid a visit to the “You Belong with Me” hitmaker backstage.
A day before surprising fans with her T.I. duet, Taylor treated her fans to a collaboration with R&B singer Usher. Together, they delivered a live rendition of “Yeah!”. Afterward, she tweeted, “I got to say ‘peace up, A-town down’ in atlanta then @UsherRaymondIV came out and sang ‘Yeah!’ with me. I’m thinking ‘is this real life?’ ”
