Usher‘s longtime collaborator and friend Rico Love was treated to a huge celebration for his 29th birthday. Usher, Mary J. Blige and Sean P. Diddy Combs hosted the birthday celebration for the young singer/songwriter. The event was held in Miami during Art Basel week, where Diddy reportedly purchased a few high priced art pieces. Rico Love has accomplished quite a bit including penning the Grammy award winning ‘There Goes By Baby’ performed by Usher. Rico has also worked with the likes of Beyonce, Mario, Diddy, Kelly Rowland and others.
Rico said of the celebration, “I had such an amazing time! I had Diddy, Usher, and Mary hosting, my closest friends celebrating with me–this was so epic.” Adding “2011 was such an incredible year for me and I look forward to another year of #1 hits.”
Others at the celebration included Melanie Fiona, who sang for the birthday boy, Teairra Mari, Cee Lo Green, Chris Bosh and his newly pregnant wife Adrienne. Check out the pictures below:
