Now that he's tying up the top of the charts, Usher 's roping off an on-camera flame.
The S&M-influenced "Lemme See" video finds the singer's latest lover struggling out of heavy ropes before Usher arrives in bed. The rest is less edgy, cutting between shots of the singer emoting by the pool and, as the lyrics promise, showing his chest -- as does shirtless guest MC Rick Ross .
Usher's "Looking 4 Myself," which was released Tuesday, is expected to top next week's Billboard 200 with sales approaching 130,000. The release is shaping up to be his fourth No. 1 album. And Usher's making the release week count: he suited up for the video for the album's second single, "Scream," on Wednesday.
Ross' own next effort, "God Forgives, I Don't," is scheduled for July 31.
