Nick Cannon released his Jeremih-assisted track, “If I Was Your Man,” back in July and now there’s a steamy video to go along with it. The visuals feature Nick (sans turban) canoodling with his rumored boo, TLC‘s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas. The majority of the video for the uptempo ditty, which naturally samples TLC’s hit track “What About Your Friends,” is set in Nick’s bedroom overlooking the ocean, while Chilli lays in bed checking out her rapping beau.
With Jeremih holding down the chorus, Nick gives a shout out to Chilli and bares his inner thoughts in his bars, rapping, “Girl you lookin’ gooder than a government check / Where the ladies with the good p***y at? / Where the ladies with the good p***y at? / Hat to the back swagged out lookin’ like Chilli / All my down h**s still kick it with me / All the hood rats still kick it for me.” How romantic. Cannon actually teased a snippet of the video back in the summer, which now brings us to the finished cut with enough chemistry to suggest that the two are indeed an item.
Chilli is currently working on the long-awaited TLC album with fellow group member Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. While there’s no release date yet, we hope she won’t let her dealings with Mr. Cannon delay things any further. “If I Was Your Man” is a part of Cannon’s upcoming mixtape, The Gospel of Ike Turn Up: My Side Of The Story, due out later this month. You can catch more from Cannon, including freestyles and loosies, on his SoundCloud. Until both parties drop their respective projects, we’ll let you be the judge on whether Cannon and Chilli are the real deal when you watch the steamy video for “If I Was Your Man” right here.
