Usher wants his woman to take control and be 'on top' in the highly-intimate video that also samples his new lingerie line.

Usher has premiered the music video for "Trading Places", the third single lifted from the May-released album "Here I Stand". In the clip which is directed by Chris Robinson and shot in Venice, C.A., Usher simply cuddles with his girlfriend on a couch and plays around with her.

The song basically tells how a couple can switch roles. The woman paying for the date and taking control of everything while the man making up bed and breakfast. "The story is, like, wishful thinking for all men to have a woman who takes control and compliments us the way we compliment them," Usher explains, adding that he and Robinson "wanted to do something very forward-thinking."

Beside promoting his single, the video also serves as his media to introduce his new line of lingerie for men and women. The model that is featured on the video is wearing one of the samples of his line. Usher emphasized on "comfort and intimacy" when it comes to his collection. No clue yet when the line will be launched but the singer was spotted at Paris Fashion Week in France last weekend to seek inspiration.

In support of his album too, Usher will embark on a short tour where all the audience will be females. Dubbed "One Night Stand", the tour will kick off on November 2 in Atlantic City, New Jersey and commence in 14 other dates.

The first time i watched the video i got reaaly hot.Usher has always appealed to me and even more so, the older he has gotten has made him sexier and this video proves. Also couples should try wat the video is saying, sice up life.

Usher has always had a major sex appeal.. although he is married with kids, he shouldn't change nothing about USHER because thats Y we love him. His wife knew what she was doing when she tricked him into marrying her anyway, so she ain't gonna trip too bad. Shes livin the life!!! You go Usher.. I think the fact that he is married, makes the video sexier.
posted by Bigsexyvon101 on Oct 07, 2008
I loved the video, very hot and steamy. His wife should be thankful someone his age still wants her ol' fish.
posted by honey angel on Oct 04, 2008
This is the life of Singers(super stars); and Usher's wife knew about this life before getting married to him; so??? !! Big deal........

I just read on another site he is disrespecting his wife, LOOKS too me that his new wife has made him all man... so he is singing about it, do your thang!! YEAH

another single , another huge flop , after the huge flop of his last single, moving mountains. BYE BYE USHER CAREER.

This is a great video, its what those who are in the industry want to see more of. I'd rather watch this grown-up video than some booty-shaken b.s. about some stripper that the artist wants to give all of his money to. Is shows how sensible, mature people act!

This was video was dope. Usher's got some crazy vocals. RnB is still Usher's kingdom, NeYo and Chris Brown aren't in his league
