After a 30-second tease earlier this week of the video for “She Came To Give It To You,” Usher dropped the complete Philip Andelman-directed clip earlier today.
Naturally the video features a whole lot of dancing to the Pharrell-produced track, who also makes a cameo. Usher is working the dance floor in an underground club in the back of an electronics store. Nicki Minaj then appears mid song in a little black dress and spits her verse in front of a wall of TV screens.
The track will appear on Usher’s upcoming album UR, which is due this fall. And just announced after the VMAs on Sunday, Usher will venture on his “UR Experience” world tour, which includes Los Angeles, Seattle, Miami, and New York. He will announce the next group of cities by Friday, August 29 if his recent tweets exceed 5,000 retweets total. Make sure you are following Usher (@Usher) and retweet to unlock the next group to see if your city makes the cut.
