Music video for Usher's "Lil Freak" off his upcoming album Raymond vs. Raymond which drops next Tuesday (Mar. 30). Ciara makes a cameo in the video. Let me know what you think.

R&B singer Usher was spotted at LAX airport yesterday. The 31-year-old singer's 6th studio album is slated to drop next Tuesday (Mar. 30), but the fans who care can find the tracks online right now. American Idol tapped the crooner to be a mentor and perform on he show next week. According to Usher's website, he'll appear on "American Idol" Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

    Yup

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Loved Nicki's verse.

  • TruGemini

    Really, what's the big effing deal w/ Niki Minaj??? :shrugs: I can't figure that sh't out. And Usher?? Honey NO!!

  • ms.truth

    are his shoes supposed to look like that????? Cause I KNOW he didn't come out the house looking like he been kicking flour! :nono:

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    I think the big deal with Nicki is that her sound is different from any other female rapper that's been out and it worked for her, she found a gimmick and it worked

  • Thetruth32

    ummm them dance moves at the end Usher :nono:

    __________

    :cosign: Isnt that what its all about anyways?? A damn gimmick??? Look at Soulja Boy... T Pain...

    Nothing against them, but its all a gimmick.

    Sidenote: I LOVE Nicki, but I been on Nicki for years! :cheer:

  • RemieBaby

    How yall like nicki's Cruella De Ville look? :lol:

  • LilMissRed

    HAWT song Ush!

  • khandi25

    The song really grew on me .. I actually like it. The video was great.. Nikki is growing on me...

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Originally I thought Nicki being lesbian was a ploy. MAYBE she had "experimented" a time or too as a lot of women do but the more she has stuck around I think she is.

    Am I the ONLY person who WOULDN'T be surprised if she did steal Cassie from Puffy?

    (Although Puff my nucca and I got a lot of respect for him)

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    @ Man, I thought it was just a ploy too that she was saying she was a lesbian. Like she knows sex sells, but really what dude do you know would go out and buy a Nicki Minaj album? I still do think she knows her target audience is ladies and every lady has a little bit of freak in them. :lol:

  • cheeks8683

    Awww shoot usher is back! I loved it when he started to groove at the end. Reminds me of junior year in college when "yeah" came out! I love that he sampled the Stevie Wonder beat in the background...I didn't like the choice of the leading lady...I dunno she looked all i dunno, random....oh well overall i loved it.

  • va_shawty

    I just wasted five minutes of my life that I will never get back. I like Usher. The video, not so much...

  • cocoa49

    Love the song. I am still going through the video in my head. Wow at first i couldn't find Ciara, but i watched the video again and saw the quick takes of her. I didn't pay attention before because i was focusing on Usher and Niki. I was waiting for some dancing from Ciara. Oh well, i guess it was Niki time.

  • PERFECTO

    I aint hating! I just aint relating. Like the song, and the video but don't like it coming from usher. He ought to be a shamed of that selction. The heir to the Micheal Jackson throne putting out that!!!!!! "You got leave that nine to five up on the shelf and just enjoy yourself"!!!!!!

  • danjas

    he's got that ben vereen look goin on in that pic. no ma'am im not feeling that look on him at all. he's too sexy to be out looking like that.

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Oh yeah, I'm quite sure she knows that women are her primary target. And oh yeah, thankfully all women have that inner freak!

    LOVE IT

  • Lala11_7

    Ah...LOVE THE SONG...

    The video...NOT SO MUCH...

    Chick they were going at...NOT HOT...looked like a scared bunny...again...NOT HOT...couldn't see the dancing...TOO DARK...would have rather seen the chick in the black/pink stripped song be the one getting hunted...ending fake ambiguity that dosen't fit the song...

    SIGH!!!

  • http://dahoneyhive.blogspot.com ryand91

    I hate videos with long intros, I didn't make it past the 1:30 mark in the video. I do like the song though heard it last night on the radio. But I really think Nicki is about to get oversaturated, because it seems like she is on every song on the radio.

  • LadyLioness

    LOL. Looks like they tried to do the Wild Orchid joint with ole girl. The song's okay, but Nicki Minaj.... :lame: Please drop-kick that Barbie bullshyt outta here!!

  • mirsmommy

    Ummm, I guess the song has to grow on me. :shurgs:

    But I have two questions:

    1. Why is Nikki Minaj so damn animated? I be crackin up at the faces that she makes.

    2. Why in THE hell is Usher wearing his son's jacket????

  • Mrs. Wimberly

    This Nicki chick is so corny. She can blow tho! I missed Usher!!!

    Afternoon all!

  • biglegs36

    I thnk Nicki has DID! She turns into several different when she raps, and when she is doing interviews.

    Dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder)

  • biglegs36

    The word (people) was left out of my sentence

  • iciaantica

    I love t his song and Usher actually seems to be making a comeback...since the last time he tried wasn't so great....Keep It Up Usher!!! Going to go out and buy the CD next week for sure.

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    The song is fire, but the video is lammmmmme....the main girl is lame...whats the point of the half sec cameo of jamie foxx and ciara, the video coulda been so much more Fail..... love nikki tho

  • tintin1979

    that poor girl must have been scared with nicki in her face like that. i like nicki verse though, even though i can stand her ass, it's those damn facial expressions.
    video is tight. usher is back, but he shoudl have dance more. you know you're career is over when you're doing spots in video, I.E. ciara. poor girl

  • H-Townmama

    I guess Im the only one who has a problem with the video. It seems like bi-sexual women are being shoved down our throats. Like its the new in thing to do. I dont like that at all...This is exactly why we dont listen to the readio in the car and why me children cant watch videos...
