Usher Dicusses Racy Lyrics On ‘Lil Freak’: ‘It Happens’

Singer says latest single was inspired by real-life experiences.

It’s not just lyrics — Usher said that when he sang about asking girls to get him girls on the track “Lil Freak,” he wasn’t just entertaining. The song was inspired by real life.

“Yeah,” he laughed when asked if he gets female friends to scout and bring him other females to engage in group fun. “I mean, I wrote about it,” he continued. “It happens in this day and time. Those are the best chicks to be friends with, honestly.”

“Hey, girl, I see you like that,” he sings on the track. “You gettin’ excited/ You rockin’ like a pro with it, girl/ By the way, you got right on that/ Picked the chick you wanted/ And now you in the corner kissin’ on a girl/ I’m about to have a have a ménage with these here ladies/ Look at those freaks at the bar looking for a star.”

The video for “Lil Freak” recently premiered and in the clip, Nicki Minaj, rocks a sexy Cruella de Vil hairstyle — half black, half blond. She helps lure a woman into Usher’s underground playground.

“The video is freaky,” Nicki told MTV News recently about the six-minute-plus clip. “And it’s a great concept, a great story line. It felt just like one of the sequels to ‘Saw.’ It was dope.”

“Lil Freak” along with the singles “Papers” and “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)” are on Usher’s upcoming Raymond v. Raymond, in stores March 30.
