In anticipation of the R&B king’s forthcoming studio album, Usher recently released two new singles: “She Came to Give It to You,” featuring Nicki Minaj, which the pair performed at the MTV VMAs while engaging in a bit of bass- and ass-slapping, as well as the sultry, bump-and-grind, sorry-I-did-you-wrong “Believe Me.” Expect new tunes as Usher Raymond IV returns for a morning visit to NBC’s Today. It’s never too early for a little swooning and panty-dropping, right?
