Usher has set his sights on the cereal aisle as the launching pad for his latest single, “Clueless.” A download of the track is now available as the bottom-of-the-box prize in specially marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios purchased at Walmart stores, according to Billboard . The track may or may not appear on the singer’s upcoming album UR , for which no release date has been set. Fall Music Preview 2014: 25 Must-Hear Albums Earlier this year, Usher appeared in a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial that spotlighted his song “She Came to Give It to You.” In the 30-second ad, the singer dances, wearing golden shoes until the cereal’s bee mascot buzzes by him to tell him that “bees communicate through dance.” Usher then goes on to carry out a conversation with the bee, through dance of course, and ultimately his animated partner declares the two “practically twins.” In August, Usher put out an official video for the track, which found him dancing with a far less benign group of musical foils: a man whose eye melts out of his face and Nicki Minaj. Usher told Billboard the next month that he was working on the record, but that it wasn’t ready to come out yet. “The album isn’t scheduled anymore,” he said.
