Usher and Nicki Minaj get freaky in the R&B singer’s latest music video for “Lil’ Freak!” The song, after-all, is all about Usher getting his girl to recruit another chick so that she, Usher and the other girl can have a threesome.

The video, directed by Taj, also features a cameo from singer Ciara. Speaking to Vibe Magazine, Taj says he wanted to redefine the work “freak” for the song’s video treatment:

“My general idea was to take the word and show it’s many faceted sides, twisting and turning it to where there’s really no distinguishing between one freak and another. Usher went there,” he says. “When you’re engaging in sexual activity, there are many transitions and this is not about what they look like literally, but what they look like metaphorically. It’s about luring people into a situation. Because you have your thoughts on a ménage à trois, but then we’re doing it in a non-obvious way.”

Usher’s new album Raymond vs. Raymond will be released next Tuesday (Mar 30). In the meantime, continue reading to peep he and Nicki’s brand new music video!
