It’s been just under four years now since “Good Kisser” crooner Usher and “Pills N Potions” rapstress Nicki Minaj teamed up for their sexy collabo, “Lil Freak.” But the powerhouse performers are teaming up once again for a brand new cut from Usher’s upcoming LP.
This time around, the whole thing’s been helmed by producer du jour Pharrell — and yes, it’s all funked up.
Listen to the radio premiere of “She Came To Give It To You” via Rap-Up after the jump.
Like Kylie‘s “I Was Gonna Cancel” and Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” (and the dozens upon dozens of other Pharrell cuts crafted over the past year), the song glides across a glossy disco stomp as Usher guides us into the club and spots a girl trying to give it to us: “There ain’t no shortcut to doing something right/Said if you do what I do, she’ll be yours tonight,” he sagely advises. What a good wingman!
Nicki comes in later for the assist, providing valuable sex ed tips (“Don’t be like OJ and forget your glove”) and intimidating all the little boys and girls trying to step up to herself and Ursh: “No little boys in the circle of Usher, got ‘em under pressure/If your girl come through, Nicki gon’ crush her/And tell your man play the back like a spine/He only last six seconds like a Vine,” Nicki expertly sasses. It’s Guest Verse Minaj in her element.
