“Little Freak” f. Nicki Minaj (Video)

    “Little Freak” is, by a wide margin, the best track to be leaked from Usher’s long-delayed Raymond vs. Raymond album (now due out on March 30). I’m not sure what that says about the rest of the album–“Little Freak” is a mile away from anything off Confessions–but you knew that given Nicki Minaj’s curious ascension, this thing would be getting the big budget video treatment. And here it is, complete with Jamie Foxx and Ciara cameos and Nicki Minaj picking out a girl for Usher to have a meange-ay with, I assume (Minaj’s verse isn’t exactly the most coherent–I still can’t figure out why she names all the reindeer). Given all the pushbacks for the album. Usher’s label is really banking on this one being able to move records. We’ll find out next week if it is. [Real Talk]
