Justin Timberlake can dance. He may not be the next OK Go, but honestly, if "Sexyback" doesn't get your foot tapping, you may be dead... or Amish... and even then...
Anyways, his new album Futuresex/Lovesounds (Worst. Name. Evar.) is brilliantly produced, and it's all thanks to beat-genius Timbaland... and that is who this post is about. While Jay-Tee has got the moves, it's Timbaland who makes all the difference.
For all of you rap-hating (and also incedentally dairy-intolerant) luddites, Timbaland is one of the most important names in the world of rap and hip-hop music since the 90's. Timbaland create beats that stray far from the ordinary and still feel foundational in music. Unlike TONS of terrible "artists" in the rap world, Timbaland actually makes an instrument out of a sampler.
Supplying artists all the way from Nelly Furtado to Missy Elliot with beats that make you want to be a "Promiscuous Girl" and a "One-Minute Man" respectfully, Timbaland has never worn out his stay.
Timberlake's new album quite a few notable tracks from Timba', especially a track entitled "My Love" which features T.I. It's a slow jam worked out upwards of 300 bpm that gives a totally chill vibe while still keeping your head bobbing. Take a listen to your song of the day:
MP3: Justin Timberlake feat. T.I. - "My Love" (Produced by Timbaland)
And honestly, give the album a listen, because it's actually quite good for what it wants to be.
