New Music: Usher f/ Nicki Minaj – ‘She Came to Give It to You’

She Came to Give it to You

Following their 2010 collaboration “Lil Freak,” Usher teams up with Nicki Minaj once again on “She Came to Give It to You” off his upcoming album. On the funky Pharrell-produced number, Ursh sings about a lady who stands out from the crowd, while Nicki has some advice for the fellas.

“And tell your man play the back like a spine / He only lasts six seconds like a Vine,” she raps.

In addition to the “Pills N Potions” rapper, Usher has been in the studio with Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Skrillex, and Juicy J, who appears on the strip club anthem “I Don’t Mind.”

Listen to the CDQ below.

    @Bowtobey, She can’t help that, she’s trash. Her flow, as always, shined thru. I just wish he would have been the trailblazer he is and gave that verse to another female MC. Would have made some ppl pay attention to the new.

    @Face, why would Usher give the verse to other female? If it is another irrelevant female rapper only her fans would pay attention, unlike Nicki who catches the attention of fans and haters alike.

    @Face, You and Oh are the same breed of bitch. Where is your commenting presence outside of attempting to form an argument against Nicki Minaj? I’ll tell you: nonexistent.

    The overall question really is: Why WOULDN’T Usher want the Queen of Hip Hop on his album? Especially with the duo having achieved prior success with Lil Freak. She ate this.

    @Oh, You’re so transparent. Just earlier this year when Tiffany Foxx released Young and Thuggin, you were spazzing her up to be the next messiah while denouncing all other female rappers including Iggy Azalea. You’re a fair-weather supporter and your words mean less than dirt on this website.

    @Oh, Oh is entertaining lmbo!!! everytime i look at Nickis post im waiting for OH to pop out with something Mad Negative!!!!!!!!!!! its funny at this point. i wish he/she would give it up though. Like a Nemesis that gets beat at the end of every episode. Why are you always plotting Nickis downfall? Do you feel that if you can get enough ppl to say that that “Nicki is over” it will become true?

    A Hit on what ? This wont even chart just like Nicki’s other 99898989 FEATURES THAT NEVER CHART.

    When will artist learn that Nicki wont give you a hit so they need to hop on the real money maker I-G-G-Y

    @Oh,

    So how come ‘No Medicore’ isn’t slaying the charts SINCE
    I-G-G-Y is the “real money maker”.

    [Reply]

    KEN. Reply:

    @KEN.,

    No mediocre is an urban track the same type of track Nicki had even featured on since lately. They normally don’t sell well.

    Nicki is being featured on Jessie J’s new POP song that will surely do just as well as Ariana’s POP song that Iggy was featured on.

    You don’t do this well.

    Maybe reach the top 40 if that. Nicki really ain’t poppin nomore (see charts in the past year in a half),it’s all about the I-G-G-Y. And usher waited too long to release another flop album/single. The album buyers are over the both of them, sorry!

    Ok Usher I’m a huge fan of his music and I was feeling Good Kisser and also Don’t mind but this song is not catching my attention. Now I usually enjoy most of usher music but more of the ballad songs and the depth in his music and this song just down right sucks let me be honest. But I do know he will not let me down when the album comes out and he is one of the great R&B artist still making music.

  25. Jason

    This song knocks very nice. It’s very “NOW”. For some reasoning The beat sounds familiar tho,

    nicki’s verse was very well put together.

    I’m excited for the summer, nicki’s poppin, iggy has her shine… And remy ma is going to be FREE.

    Sounds nice for the female rap game, eh!?

    This song is dope, very different from what’s on the radio now. But, it has potential. If, the song is handled properly it could definitely be a single. Can see this peaking Top40, if they promote it, again IF!

  30. Yoldoaz dezx suryie

    It sound like an old school R&b jam song that everybody can dance to of their own way into it nice nicki minaj verse. And usher keep it up
