New Music: Usher feat. Nicki Minaj – She Came To Give It To You

Usher - she came to give it to you

If you thought Usher‘s upcoming album was only going to host “Good Kisser” as its main hit, think again because the top R&B crooner has done it again! Calling on Pharrell Williams for the production and reuniting with Nicki Minaj for a guest rap verse, the new single is sure to keep you moving.

Titled, “She Came To Give It To You,” the record is a dance heavy, feel good single that will have everyone who’s anyone grooving to the beat. Reminiscent of Marvin Gaye mixed with a little Michael Jackson, “She Came To Give It To You” is definitely giving us what we need on this Tuesday morning.
