YUNA became the talk of the town after a video of her hugging duet partner Usher on stage, while ending their performance at an event, went viral on social media.

The incident happened spontaneously while they were singing their hit song, Crush, at The Roots Picnic 2016 in Philadelphia, USA, last month.

The video was posted on Instagram and Twitter by Yuna on June 5th, and her act was criticised by some bloggers.

It then created hype on social media.

However, netizens defended Yuna by saying Usher is not familiar with the etiquette of Malaysian culture.

Furthermore, the Grammy award winner's action was considered unintentional because Yuna at first gave him a head bow before they both hugged for three seconds as a sign of gratitude.

Meanwhile, through her Twitter account on July 19, Yuna posted, “drinking tea while reading comments by haters before soundcheck.”

Her post was commended by her supporters and encouraged the world class singer.

Usher will be performing in the 18th edition Grand Prix Formula One (F1) Malaysia concert, from September 30th to October 2nd 2016.
