DETROIT — Grammy Award winner Usher drives the 2014 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG in a new Mercedes-Benz YouTube video.

"As a self-proclaimed fan of AMG, he is very excited about the opportunity to check out the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production," said Mercedes-Benz in a statement that accompanied the video.

Mercedes-Benz USA did not respond immediately to an Edmunds query asking if Usher is a paid spokesman for the company. The New York Times has described Usher as "a genial pop idol."

"That is an incredible ride," Usher said, after putting the yellow A45 AMG through its paces on a track.

The car churns out 360 horsepower and is slated for European markets. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG debuted at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show.

Edmunds says: Mercedes-Benz proves that a pop star can have some fun in a four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive hatchback.
