Raheem DeVaughn, you have been trumped. The singer's NSFW video for "She's Single" made a big splash last year, thanks to some sex scenes so realistic that people are still trying to figure out whether they were simulated or not. But go-go band TCB has done DeVaughn one better with the new video for "Lay it Down," which features some well-lit, mild nudity.

TCB fans responded to the criticism, questioning why raw, uncut videos are acceptable when done by DeVaughn, Keri Hilson, or Trey Songz, but not TCB. (To TCB's credit, the band has re-tweeted many of the responses, both positive and negative, and has attempted to address fan questions and concerns).
