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

Usher and Nicki Minaj

Fresh off his white-hot performance at the VMAs, Usher lights up the screen alongside Nicki Minaj in the dance-heavy video for “She Came to Give It to You.”

In the Philip Andelman-directed clip, the R&B superstar takes over an underground club in the back of an electronics store, working up a sweat as he busts some slick moves on the dance floor.

Nicki comes through the after-hours party, dressed to kill in all black, and spits her quirky verse in front of a wall of TV monitors. Plus, don’t miss a cameo from Pharrell, who lurks in the shadows.

The Pharrell-produced song will appear on Usher’s upcoming album UR, due this fall.

Later this year, he will embark on “The UR Experience” world tour, which includes L.A., Seattle, Dallas, Chicago, New Orleans, and New York.

    This song is so goooood! In 2014, it’s possible to make good rnb anymore.
    I could easily hear Chris Brown singing on this . Hope this style of groovy music will be on “X ” and not to much electro stuff.

    Usher still killin it . His album will be great if I take into account the 3 first song. Even if it doesn’t do well on the Charts, I don’t care! That’s real music.

    Nicki looks so good and the verse is great too!

    Was really looking forward to this video as I’ve been non-stop jamming to this song. The beat is infectious and nick’s verse is fantastically playful.
    Unfortunately, when it came to the video, it was a major let down. The special effects were cool and interesting but that was it. I felt this was an lazy and imaginative plot for a video especially as usher already has dozens of club scene music videos (love in the club, dj falling in love, yeah, etc). Why is he picking the same old concepts? He needs to freshen up his visuals. Give his audience something unexpected. No one was bothered when he performed at the vma’s. The performance was good but nothing show stopping.
    His song with chris brown is sick and the video was creative and fresh.
    I will be buying the album regardless because his music is era has been top quality. He should get a fresher creative team though.

    [Reply]

    Major Sushi Reply:

    @Lamb4Life, Yeah, that’s what they said about Nicki, before her debut album. Now look at her now. 2 albums, and her 3rd one hasn’t come out yet, and you’re bothered by this feature song that’s not even hers.

    I’m sorry, but is Mariah a rap artist? No. Mariah had her time, and it stopped when she had her twins. Her recent album, was not successful, for obvious reasons that you are blind to.
    I’ve heard Mariah’s new album, songs were great, individually. But lacked a solid concept, which reflected on the album sales.

    Nicki hasn’t had her 3rd album out yet, and you’re already bothered by a song that’s not even hers. Lol.

    20 Years from now, people will remember Nicki’s work, for re-opening doors for female rap artist, and remind that even females can rap, even if it is “bubble-gum pop”

    20 years from now, people will remember Mariah’s days of being in denial of her age & thinking she could still hit that whistle register after child birth.

  17. Lamb4Life

    @ major sushi. No Mariah is not a rap artist but you brought her name up in other post because I was getting on Nicki helmet about her non rapping skills. But I can bring up other rap artist who are way better than this bitch. She’s a knock off Foxy and Kim.

    [Reply]

    Major Sushi Reply:

    @Lamb4Life, Well if you want to bring up and call Nicki trash, I can also bring up Mariah’s dirty laundry too.

    Foxy & Kim had their time, in the 90s. And it must eat you up so much that this “trash” of an artist who raps “let me put this bubble gum on this lollipop” lyricist is succeeding way passed Kim & Mariah, when this isn’t even her song.

    But you really want to know the difference between Kim league & Nicki league? One is smarter than the other one, business wise.

    You know what’s the difference between Nicki & Mariah? Nicki knows her audience.

    Nicki communicates with her fans, check her Twitter & Instagram account. If you want to be relevant, you gotta reach out to the younger audience.

    Mariah & Kim fans are too old to keep up with what’s going on. The age range of Mimi & Kimmy fans are in their 30s, already, with full-time jobs & already have a family of their own.

    Mariah’s body isn’t what it used to be, and Kim’s already been through so many races. I don’t know where Foxy is, but last interview I saw her, was her crying about something irrelevant.

    Face it. Nicki Minaj is the now, because she’s smarter in the game. Don’t hate the player, if your idol can’t play the game right.

    Lamb4Life Reply:

    @Major Sushi, Lol u wrote all this irrelevant bs for what? Her music is still whack and the bitch has no classics. And on what level has she passed Mariah lol cuz when I check the charts I still see One Sweet Day as the longest running number one n billboard history. And We belong together is the second longest running number one behind it. Lol shes competing with herself. How is black widow floppin yet its higher than anaconda. Mariah doesn’t need to stay relevant when she got $550 million boo boo. Sips tea.

    [Reply]

    Major Sushi Reply:

    @Lamb4Life, It must really bite your sorry ass that this “trash” music is what’s making Nicki Minaj successful. Nicki’s album hasn’t come out yet, and you’re already comparing notes from a “trash” rap artist to an old washed up singer.

    I’m sorry, One Sweet Day & We Belong Together are still charting? At what relevant number? Madonna or Mariah’s age?

    Lamb4Life Reply:

    @Major Sushi, If yall think she killed Foxy and Kim with this pop shit yall really are dumb. Thr bitch can have all the “hits” and money she wants. No classics. And u still have yet to name one. Cuz she aint got none. Meanwhile lil kim music will be played years from now. Sips tea

    [Reply]

    Major Sushi Reply:

    @Lamb4Life, Lmao wow. Nice argument. *sips tea*

    If you haven’t heard, today’s music is not about how much you can kill a Grey Goose, or how many Licks does it take to get the center of it.

    Everyone wants something hot RIGHT now. This is Nicki Minaj’s time of shine, and you are poorly attempting to ressurect old hip-hop artist that can’t make a come-back to save their lives.
    We saw how Kim delivered her mixtape, and people were saying “This will murder Pink Friday” but no official record shows that it out sold Pink Friday. Especially, vis PayPal.

    I don’t care about Foxy. I have no clue what she’s doing with her life right now.

    Kids, behave. Usher’s an awesome vocalist/dancer. I like his new music. In fact, I think if he felt he had all the freedom in the world to do what he really wanted, whenever he wanted, his music would turn out even more awesome. Stop tryna break a nigga down. If he were White, his latest 2 singles probably would have charted a way lot better. #RealTalk

At least BET,MTV,IHeartradio,NBC always call usher to perform at their shows cuz people are still here for him. Oh and by the way Usher’s last album sold more then Mariah Carey’s this year. Just give it up Mariah Carey is over. That’s why Ariana Grande took her spot. Sips tea while listening to SCTGITY

    @Hot Nigga, All this yet he cant replication his sales from Confessions. Mariah done? How when her record still stands. For longest running number one in history. Lets mot forget she made herself the best while MJ was in Whitney was in Madonna was in all the greats. She’s more than proven herself. Usher will never be MJ or R Kelly and thats facts. And Ariana Grande cant even pronounce her words when she sings I highly doubt she took Mariah spot when she still aint got a number 1 and Mariah got 18. Sips tea. Lets face it she’s still winning. Counts $550 million. Sips more tea. And they do ask Mariah she turns them down unless shes promoting. None of the stars of her caliber attend awards anymore such as Prince Madonna Celine etc cuz they are solidified legends. They wish Mariah would attend their awards.
