Emin's music video makes several references to the so-called Steele dossier's allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the election.

The roughly three-minute video for the song "Got Me Good" appears to parody the president's trip to Moscow in 2013 for the Miss Universe pageant, as well as one of the most damning accusations made in former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele's dossier about Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

The video, which was shot when Mr. Trump was in Russian Federation for the Miss Universe Pageant, features Mr. Trump firing Agalarov for seemingly daydreaming about pageant contestants, a nod to Mr. Trump's former stint on reality television, "The Apprentice".

The Russian pop star, ally of President Vladimir Putin and would-be Trump friend who helped broker the infamous Trump Tower meeting is out with a new video that practically screams "lewd Trump-Russia tape".

Emin is often shown grinning in the music video while actors playing Trump and other Americans engage in compromising activity.

The scene seemingly enacts the claims that the Russian government had taped Trump meeting with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel in 2013.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Trump Jr., told NBC News a year ago that Agalarov was key in setting the meeting up. The action then abruptly cuts to the figure watching the monitors - the actor playing Kim, who munches on popcorn and laughs maniacally.

In the video, the singer is seen walking through the halls of a hotel with Trump and Ivanka Trump impersonators. At one point, he even encounters Stormy Daniels, the porn star alleging to have had an affair with the president.

Several characters in Emin's music video, including "Daniels", "Clinton", and "Zuckerberg", are separately shown either handing off or picking up unmarked envelopes and briefcases in a scenario orchestrated by Emin while the man in the control room watches the video feed.

Agalarov also throws back shots, plays poker and snaps a selfie with an actress clearly meant to portray Clinton. In the end, the person is revealed to be North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump, though, has claimed that Clinton and Democrats had colluded with Russian Federation, claiming they were behind the dossier all along.
