It’s here!

The video for Usher’s newest number ‘She Came To Give It To You’ premiered moments ago on VEVO.

Featuring a guest spot from the crooner’s ‘Lil Freak’ comrade Nicki Minaj, the track serves as the second official single to be lifted from the singer’s eighth studio album – due later this year.

With predecessor ‘Good Kisser’ earning more critical success than commercial, can ‘Give It To You’ even out the playing field now that its accompanying visual has arrived? Find out below…

Great energy, but the lighting and editing made for a distracting watch. Not bad, but could have been better.

  2. Mark111 August 26, 2014

    I loved it. I will always have a thing for dance videos, from Michael & Janet, to Usher and Aaliyah and even with Chris Brown and Ciara. I think I see the direction this era and album is going.

    • LB August 26, 2014

      Yes he is pushing a more grown up mature sound, which is what he should have pushed with Looking for myself as it is not too bad an album.

      I’m glad he has reflected and is delivering what he is meant to deliver. Hope he delivers a masterpiece, I am enjoying everything I am hearing.

      Brings back memories of 8701, my fav Usher album.

    • BeyRihLiyah August 26, 2014

      wassup mark you was missing yesterday how was your 8/25 ?

      • Mark111 August 26, 2014

        Spent the whole day listening to her albums. I even found a LIVE version of Never Coming Back and she killed it. Sadly it’s just audio. What did you do?

      • Mark111 August 26, 2014

      • Mark111 August 26, 2014

        I’m sorry, I’m trying to post it, but it keep posting playlist.

    • BeyRihLiyah August 26, 2014

      I spent the day watching Romeo must die and queen of the damned and listened to the legendary red album

  3. eric August 26, 2014

    The intro was more promising than what the video actually delivered. I want Usher to stop with the MJ silhouette poses and go back to a sound that makes me hear no other voice but his singing it. He needs his own sound again and something more than plain black & white for his image. Bring back the fun from the days of 8701!

    • Mark111 August 26, 2014

      His music is fine, it’s his LIVE acts that needs a revamp. You can’t stay in the past man.

    • LB August 26, 2014

      I don’t know what you’re talking about, this is classic Usher.

  4. LB August 26, 2014

    Loved it, it was everything I’ve been waiting for Usher to deliver since after Here I am. Glad Usher is making music for his age group, his fan base that grew up with him.

    I like that he has learned from the mistake that was Raymond vs Raymond or whatever that horrible album was called.

    I cannot wait to get my hands on this album, it sounds good so far. I love Good Kisser and I love this song too, the video is awesome too.

    Good job Usher.

    • LB August 26, 2014

      *Here I stand

    • Mark111 August 26, 2014

      RvR was pretty bad, but L4M wasn’t bad, trial and error, and I think this next album will be a classic. Like you said, he just needed to grow up and leave that club/EDM mess to lessors. (Chris, Trey, Jason, Neyo and others.)

    • Dossome August 26, 2014

      RvR is definitely his weakest IMO but Lay You Down from Versus totally slaaaaaaaaaays

  5. #TeamTinashe Stan (“Pretend” Ft. ASAP Rocky Now On iTunes) August 26, 2014

    In my opinion, Usher has been putting out some basic, boring performances as of lately. Especially when had the chance kill the BET Awards with his melody performance.
    Anyways, I’m not a fan of the song but I am still a huge fan of his. And he is over doing the club music videos. He is loaded with music videos that consist in a club.

    • LB August 26, 2014

      B**** sit down, club videos is Trey Songz, b****** and drinks; this is classic Usher at the Jazz Festival theme.

      Go play with your Barbies or something and leave the informed comments to people that actually know what they’re talking about.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (“Pretend” Ft. ASAP Rocky Now On iTunes) August 26, 2014

        You are obviously born in the late 2000′ so it doesn’t make sense for me to argue with you lol.
        .
        Usher has always had a party/club hall vibe in his videos. That was my point. And Trey songz? Notice how you mentioned one video when he basically had like two or three compared to my fave Usher who has like about 10.
        .
        Now continue being pressed looking at my comment like this -> _/
        Enjoy your day, sweety! 😉

    • Breezyonfire August 26, 2014

      Get the F*** outta here. Usher slayed the bet and vmas. That n**** still got it.

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan (“Pretend” Ft. ASAP Rocky Now On iTunes) August 26, 2014

    I’m not the biggest Ciara fan, but have always wished her well since I know she is talented. My opinion, a Chris Brown & Ciara collaboration (including music video) would be GREAT! for Ciara’s new project and especially due to the fact that it’s been long and anticipated by fans.
    And of course, Chris would love it to p*** off his ex Rihanna. lol you know that boy love controversy.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (“Pretend” Ft. ASAP Rocky Now On iTunes) August 26, 2014

      Referring to @Mark11 comment. 😉

  7. umm August 26, 2014

    I like it. I can’t wait to hear this album cuz the first to singles have been just pure quality. His vocals are on point and no other male r&b and very few pop singers can touch his falsetto. Usher just need to work on live performances to show that he can sing and dance flawlessly and he would get that same respect that Beyonce gets.

  8. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 26, 2014

    I loved it! This is classic Usher. There is no reason for anyone to sleep on this album. I’m hearing nothing but quality so far.

    & good to hear his undeniable classic ‘8701’ getting some love on this post. Still my favorite Usher album. 🙂

    • umm August 26, 2014

      And to think 8701 started out very sloppy as far as promo goes anybody remember Pop ya collar?? I think Usher works better under pressure and his best moments have come from it.

  9. k August 26, 2014

    i love it, Usher and Nicki did there thing.

  10. Breezys baby August 26, 2014

    This generation doesn’t care about Usher. The only hope he has at charting is New Flame. Sorry…. 🙁

    • Mark111 August 26, 2014

      You’re mad cause Chris Beatdown haven’t had a platinum since Exclusive. #Opps #CerrorTease

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        LOYAL went platinum and fortune went gold! Ushers music isn’t charting and his albums gonna flop. JT destroyed the little bit of musical relevancy he had left. How many Chris Brown singles and features charted top 20 in the past year? I lost count 😉

      • Mark111 August 26, 2014

        Singles, I’m talking albums. Like Cerror, his last 3 albums hasn’t passed a million units. The definition of a singles artist. Usher’s confessions is still the highest selling R&B albums.

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        That was 10 years ago. Who cares about usher now? I’ll wait….

    • We will rock you August 26, 2014

      Shut the f*** up. Usher is still performing at huge award shows,tv shows,and is having deals with brands like Pepsi and General Mills. Only good thing that happen to chris brown was loyal And new flame because of USHER. MTV,BET,and IHeartradio always call usher to performs at their shows because the 90s,2000s,and 2010s generations are here for him.Whether this generation like its or not their always gonna see usher. To be honest only bet and 106 and park fans are here for chris lmao.but atleast your fave got to see usher perform at the vmas and stay outta trouble lmao.

      • #TeamUrsha August 26, 2014

        I don’t think breezybaby gonna talk s*** again lmao

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        Only BET and 106? Is that why his music continuously peaks in the top 20/10? New Flame would be a hit without Usher. How did good kisser do? How is this song doing? How’d every single after Climax do?

    • QueenB August 26, 2014

      This isn’t 2008 the GP ain’t here for Chris Brown anymore.

    • Mahonies August 26, 2014

      They’ve done well actualy the next single after climax went in the billboard top 10.

    • Flawless****++ August 26, 2014

      Fun Fact: did you know Usher has 8 Grammys and Chris Brown has 1.

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        Yet and still Chris is much more relevant. Ushers time has come and gone. He’s on his second flop single and his album is nowhere in sight. Meanwhile Chris releases hit after hit even from the jail cell lol.

    • Good kisser August 26, 2014

      Chris brown the 2010s bobby brown lol.

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        Who keeps shitting out hits. 😉

    • Beyonce rules August 26, 2014

      Wat!!!!!! Chris brown time was 2005-2008 and his left 2009.
      Usher time was 1997-til now

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        Usher has been replaced by Bruno and JT. Even JB is more relevant and outselling his tired ass. I bet you haven’t purchased an Usher album since ’04.

    • Perry August 26, 2014

      Karreuche get off of that grape juice and deal with the beyhive and pray your career doesn’t die like your thot ass boyfriend

    • Good Kisser August 26, 2014

      Nah only thing he shits on is his vocals

      • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

        Quit trolling under several usernames Usher

    • Wayne world August 26, 2014

      I haven’t purchased a chris brown album since 2007 lmao

    • New flame August 26, 2014

      Stop it breezybaby if there was no usher our fave wouldn’t even exist.

    • New flame August 26, 2014

      wtf ain’t nobody usher it’s just teamusher standing up now

    • Beyonce Rules August 27, 2014

      Do you know Usher has 9#1 singles as a lead artist and 18 top 10 hits
      Do you know that Chris Brown only has 2#1 hits and Idgaf top 10 hits. Probably not a lot lol

      • Wayne world August 27, 2014

        Yasssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Navy nick August 26, 2014

  13. BOOBIE August 26, 2014

    Slay Queen Nicki and King Usher

  14. UGH August 26, 2014

    O.k. Usher. Glad to see you STILL have IT.

  15. FutureCIARA August 26, 2014

    When will Chris Brown & Ciara…. Like ugh….. WTF they both on some bull shitt!

    • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

      Never because Ciara is a flop….

      • FutureCIARA August 26, 2014

        Yawn….

    • UGH August 26, 2014

      EVERY man Flopara haa dated or been with FLOPPED after, so I’m thinking he’s doing the right thing.

      • umm August 26, 2014

        I like Chris but don’t come for king ursh na! Chris still can’t sell an album his stats real weak compared to usher at 23 usher was THE biggest star period! Chris as much I wanna see him win won’t be on that level he had the chance but failed.

  16. Rihboy August 26, 2014

    Random, but towards the end of nickis rap she cleverly flashed 666 lls. Idk why that stood out to me. But as the screen flashed, every take she had 6 fingers up. Moreover, boring. It was giving love in this club/ i aint thru vibes visual wise.

  17. former rihanna stan August 26, 2014

    I am afraid that he has been left behind,. JT FSLS killed his chances. It does not help that he does not get airplay or press and covers like JT; maybe due to his race, but, also cos he is boring and has no star quality. His music is sack, basic and he will flop. Sad.

    • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

      Usher has always been a trend hopper throughout his entire career. Sadly it’s no longer working because he’s old now and looks foolish. His so called stans don’t seem to understand that.

  18. Flawless****++ August 26, 2014

    Tell me You didn’t just say that.

  19. Trigga August 26, 2014

    How does he have no star quality if he’s performed at the major music awards,the voice,nylon magazine , about to perform at iheartradio festival,fashion rocks. And how is he boring when your fave justin timberfake wants always f****** imitates him. Just keep quiet dumbass. Also usher does get played on radio

  20. Rihanaarocks August 26, 2014

    Oh yeahh. Dey do be calling him white usher though

  21. Good kisser August 26, 2014

    You want to talk about usher being left behind when justin timberlake released 20/06 experience lmao

    • Breezybaby August 26, 2014

      Usher will never see JT’s sales in 2014. Keep clinging to 2004. Although I’m not a fan, JT stayed true to himself and his style.

      • umm August 26, 2014

        What style was that old timbaland beats? Tim was the best thing to happen to JT without him he would still be singing with nsync

      • Good kisser August 26, 2014

        Usher still a bigger start then chris brown In 2014. Chris could of been as big as usher if he didn’t beat women lol

  22. Beyvanguard August 27, 2014

    There’s an argument wit team breezy and teamusher lol I want in. Anyway I’m wit teamusher on this one chris hasn’t done half of what usher done including this year.Atleast chris brown made a song with usher which was his life hood dream lol.Also plain and simple Jt,bruno mars and cb aren’t ranked as the list of best selling music artists of all time .But Usher is !!!!!!!! So have a seat

  23. That’s Ms Sophia to you August 27, 2014

    In 03/04 usher had a diamond album but in 2014 JT may sale more by 2054 he won’t have diamond album and probably never will…..#Nowbye

    • Beyvanguard August 27, 2014

      Usher is still a big name and performs better then his white
      Immator. Now shut it up b****. You wants talk about sales
      B**** does justin timberlake have the biggest selling r&b album of all time?
      no? No okay den go to Stan somewhere. This n****
      Jt is like usher and vanilla ice mixed together. Usher
      Ain’t needed no boy band to get to the top lmao

  24. Beyvanguard August 27, 2014

    Just sit yo tired ass down. Usher is

  25. Beyvanguard August 27, 2014

    The avatar of miss Sophia look like jt a few years from now

  26. TAYLOR SWIFT HEADING TO BILLBOARD NUMBER 1 August 27, 2014

    Come on swifties:D

    • DTG August 27, 2014

      Go away. You are completely out of place here, why you keep coming back I don’t know. Taylor Swift is the definition of corny and does not fit into the theme of this blog at all. I know that Taylor is currently being blacklisted by country music media because of her tacky selling out to pop music, and probably being ignored by (or hated at) music blogs catered to that genre, but you won’t find refuge at an urban blog. She doesn’t fit in here and neither do you, you cheesy dork.

      • August 27, 2014

        Exactly.

      • TAYLOR SWIFT HEADING TO BILLBOARD NUMBER 1 August 27, 2014

        Lmao Haters gonna hate hate hate. but I’m gonna shake shake it off

        “Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ Debuts At No. 1 On Hot 100”

        HA

      • DTG August 27, 2014

        I couldn’t care less where her tacky song debuts (and your response was corny as hell.) That’s not even the point. The point is that you are out of your element and don’t belong here. You’re like that scrawny dorky kid with no friends who tries to sit at the cool lunch table. It’s like go away dweeb, no one here wants you around.

  27. lalala August 27, 2014

    Am I the only one feeling this is a reloaded “blurred lines”?

    • Good kisser August 27, 2014

      Yes

  28. Jon August 27, 2014

    Justin definitely didn’t deserve that Vanguard Award more than Usher. Justin does “Black music” and he’s considered a genius; Usher does “White music” and he’s considered a sell out. That’s White America for you! And, no, nor Justin or Robin has ever touched/will ever touch Usher vocally.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 27, 2014

      Funny, I was actually thinking about that whilst watching the video, Usher has made more of an impact visually as well as creatively, and his shows are ALWAYS entertaining. But the general population rather see JT as some type of pioneer just like they did Elvis who also was ‘inspired’ by black music.

  29. ~The Arcade~ August 27, 2014

    Love the song. Agree with TGJ about the lights; it took away from some potential amazing choreography. My only critic about this is, I wish there was more of a “themed- choreographed” video with a prominent storyline. That is all folks!!!

  30. name? August 27, 2014

    i just feel that usher’s mother is his best manager he could ever get and may b thats why he was on top till he fired her. I dont think these types of songs can do anything good for him he needs a club banger like yeah right now but he is busy copying other artists like robin thick justin bieber. This justin bieber thing has ruined his carrier honestly.

  31. JOHNVIDAL August 27, 2014

    I liked it a lot.
    Does Nicki Minaj have to always look retarded though?
