Usher dances the night away in his latest video for "Scream," which premiered today (June 13) at midnight. The viral, although full of scantily-clad floating ladies, is relatively tame in comparison to the sexy lyrics. "Got no drink in my hand, but I'm wasted. Getting drunk off the thought of you naked," Usher sings. "Now relax and get on your back."

"Scream" is laced with footage shot at the singer's NYC listening on April 27, which he integrated with Off-Broadway, "Fuerza Bruta." Usher takes full advantage of the production as he takes the role as the running man. Dressed in a white suit, Usher strolls -- and eventually runs -- across the venue's conveyor belt. He pauses throughout only to tease sly looks, show off his signature dance moves and bring attention to the ceiling full of swimming women.

The video ends with Usher bursting through a faux brick wall into a raucous audience, giving viewers a full feel of "Fuerza Bruta."

"Scream" is the second single off Usher's seventh studio album "Looking 4 Myself." With 553,000 downloads sold to date according to Nielsen SoundScan, the single decends 13-14 on the Hot 100 chart this week, to be released tomorrow (June 14) on Billboard.com.
