Usher, Nicki Minaj Re-Team On Pharrell-Produced 'She Came To Give It To You'

Usher and Nicki Minaj had a hit in 2010 with "Lil Freak," and Pharrell Williams produced "Twisted," one of the strongest cuts on Usher's 2012 album "Looking 4 Myself." On "She Came To Give It To You," the three artists team up, with startlingly smooth results. Click here to listen.

The spiraling bass and backing harmonies are pure "G I R L," but Usher provides that extra splash of suave as he swivels between falsetto and full-throated croon. Nicki Minaj, per usual, steals the show -- the most quotable line of her verse being "Tell your man play the back like a spine/He only last six seconds like a Vine."

"She Came To Give It To You" will appear on Usher's follow-up to "Looking 4 Myself," along with the previously released "Good Kisser," which peaked at No. 18 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs tally. The as-yet-untitled album is due out this fall on RCA Records.

In the meantime, Usher has teamed up with Chris Brown and Rick Ross on the Breezy track "New Flame," and allowed Disclosure to officially remix "Good Kisser." Listen to the latter track below:
