New Video: Usher – ‘Lil’ Freak (ft. Nicki Minaj)’

The video for Usher‘s latest single ‘Lil’ Freak (ft. Nicki Minaj)’ premiered a few moments ago. Check out the TAJ-directed clip above…

Certainly a ‘different’ one for the R&B crooner, yet one I’m definitely feeling. Put simply, both the song and video are some of Usher’s most engaging work since ‘Confessions’ (I seem to be among the few who never understood the hype around 08′s ‘Love In This Club’). In any case, Mr Raymond finally appears to be getting his groove back; the timing of which is apt… his new LP ‘Raymond v Raymond’ is days away from release.

What do you think of the video?

Hot Shot: Usher & Nicki Minaj On Set Of ‘Lil Freak’ Video

usher lil freak e1268741622536 Hot Shot: Usher & Nicki Minaj On Set Of Lil Freak Video

R&B star Usher posed it up with Nicki Minaj on the set of their video for new single ‘Lil’ Freak’, which was shot last week in Los Angeles. The clip was directed by TAJ (also pictured).

With ‘Lil’ Freak’ serving as the track which has, thus far, garnered the most buzz from Usher’s ‘Raymond v Raymond’ LP (due March 30th), it was a pretty smart move on his team’s part to give it the single treatment. With the video no doubt set to drop around the album’s release, it’ll likely give the LP a healthy first week boost.

Usher Covers Billboard Magazine

usher billboard 11 Usher Covers Billboard Magazine

As R&B star Usher readies his sixth studio album ‘Raymond v Raymond’ for its March 23rd release, the 31 year old features on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard magazine.

The interesting feature (click here to read), reveals some of the project’s behind-the-scenes hold ups (he is now managed by AEG CEO Randy Phillips – not his mother), as well as asks whether the Grammy winner can indeed make a comeback. A great read.

Randomness: Usher shot the video for ‘Lil’ Freak’ (his next US single) yesterday with Nicki Minaj. Word has it Ciara will feature in the clip.

Back to the magazine’s focus….

Do you think Usher can make a comeback?

Usher Shouts ‘OMG’ On New International Single

usher omg Usher Shouts OMG On New International Single

R&B star Usher is set to release his sixth studio album ‘Raymond v Raymond’ on March 30th (March 29th in Europe/Australia).

While a number of songs have been rolled out thus far – some billed as ‘traditional singles’ and others ‘buzz’ singles, we have received word from the the singer’s label confirming that ‘OMG’ will serve as ‘Raymond’s…’ first International release. What’s more, the 30 year old echoed the news on Twitter a few hours ago, announcing that he is shooting the video with Black Eyed Peas front-man will.i.am – who produced and features on the song.

Though I’m rooting for Usher this go round, and feel he’s delivered much better material than he’s being given credit for with this record, my sentiments pretty much echo Trent’s review of the song from earlier this year.

In any case, if you’ve yet to hear the song, check it out below:

Usher Performs At NBA All-Stars Pre-Game

Usher opened the NBA All-Stars Game, which took place at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, with an electrifying performance of ‘More’ and ‘She Don’t Know’ (both from his new LP ‘Raymond v Raymond’), as well as his 2004 smash ‘Yeah’. Check it out above…

Say what you want about him, but it’s hard to doubt Mr Raymond’s ability and agility as a live performer. After all these years, he’s still world-class, and able to hang with those who’ve come after him. Awesome performance.

Tidbit: Yes, he lip-synced everything aside from ‘Yeah’, however, considering a) the fact we all know he can sing and b) he put on one hell of a show with the choreography etc, he gets a pass.

What do you think of the performance?
