Tink – “I Like”

Tink continues to release new tracks as she works on her full-length debut album, ThinkTink, with Timbaland, but for her last two songs she’s enlisted other producers as well. For “Wet Dollars” she worked with Chicago producer Tazer, and today’s new release “I Like” was produced by C-Sick. Tink returns to sensual R&B vibes for… More »

Courtney Love Explains How Timbaland Dealt With Her Limited Vocal Range On Empire

Girls star Jemima Kirke interviewed Courtney Love for the latest issue of Citizens Of Humanity, and if you’re familiar with Kirke’s character Jessa on the show and Love’s reputation, then you know that they’re an ideal duo. Kirke asked dozens of questions on a variety of topics, but it’s especially interesting to read what Love… More »

The Week In Pop: From The Earliest MP3 To The Latest Britney Spears, A Pop History Of Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”

“Tom’s Diner” is one of those songs you know even if you don’t realize it. Suzanne Vega’s signature song — written about the same NYC diner they used for exterior shots in Seinfeld — has been remixed, covered, and sampled so many times by so many musicians that its melody is basically imprinted on our… More »

Emerson Windy – “Come Get It” (Feat. Pusha T & P Money) Video

Emerson Windy is a rapper from Oceanside, California who released the incredulously titled mixtape Herojuana last year. Today, he’s shared a video for “Come And Get It,” one of the tape’s songs; it features Pharrell, P Money, and was co-produced by Timbaland. The video was directed by Yellow Nguyen. It’s about a lot of things,… More »

Tink – “Ratchet Commandments” Video

Tink and Timbaland continue their partnership in the video for her latest song “Ratchet Commandments.” The Chicago rapper dons a series of costumes from choir girl to Egyptian queen to preach her anti-Instagram “you can’t sit with us” message that might be catchy but suffers from some serious slut-shaming vibes. The song takes place i… More »

Photos: SXSW 2015

SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald’s showcase, damn.) As much a… More »

Tink – “Ratchet Commandments”

It’s been so fun to watch Tink emerge. Ever since her Timbaland co-sign, plenty of people have been hailing her as the next Aaliyah or the next Lauryn Hill, but watching her rap at the beginning of her first-ever interview, I was always more struck by the way she didn’t feel the need to imitate… More »

Gunplay – “Scuffed Timbs” (Feat. Rick Ross) (Prod. Timbaland)

After a few false starts and a handful of mixtapes, including this year’s self-titled, Living Legend is scheduled to come out early next year. “Scuffed Timbs” is a new track… More »

Tink – “Around The Clock” Video

Tink is poised to become rap’s next big thing, especially now that Timbaland has taken her under his wing. But if “Around The Clock” proves anything, it’s that she doesn’t need anyone’s help. “I never heard the word declined/ All I think about is time, I need it ’round the clock,” she spits on the… More »

Tink – “UFO” (Feat. Timbaland & André 3000)

Timbaland signed Chicago up-and-comer Tink to his label a few months back, and they’ve been working with some pretty big names so far, including Jay Z, Rick Ross, and André 3000. During a livestream session yesterday, he played her André 3000 collaboration in full. The track is called “UFO” and you can see Timbaland singing… More »

Timbaland Blasts Lifetime’s “Bullshit Aaliyah Movie”

On Saturday night, Lifetime aired Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B, its furiously maligned biopic about the late R&B legend. The assembled masses of the internet spent the evening making fun of the movie, and one of the most vocal critics was Timbaland, the producer who worked with Aaliyah on some of the greatest pop song… More »

The Week In Pop: Presenting The Mid-2014 Pop Superlatives

Seeing as we gave you a mid-year countdown of 2014’s best albums so far earlier this week, now seems like a good time to step back and assess the best and worst of what the pop sphere has given us this year. More »

The Week In Pop: Miranda Lambert, Lucy Hale, And Country’s Strange State Of Flux

The CMT Awards began with what passes for traditionalism these days: ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, beards out, grooving through “La Grange,” a Texas blues-rock boot-scooter recorded 41 years ago. But before the opening medley was over, it quickly morphed into what passes for country these days. First came Florida Georgia Line, the… More »

Michael Jackson – “Loving You” & “Blue Gangsta”

We’re edging ever closer to next week’s release of Xscape, Michael Jackson’s second posthumous album, and we’ve already heard “Chicago” and “Love Never Felt So Good.” Now we get to listen to another two tracks: “Loving You” and “Blue Gangsta.” The project is set to feature previously unreleased material “contemporaized” by a team of producer… More »

Michael Jackson – “Chicago” (Prod. Timbaland)

Michael Jackson never released a Timbaland-produced song while he was alive, which is too bad. Tim was peaking right when MJ was attempting a comeback with Indestructible, and both have such weird and singular rhythmic sensibilities that I have to believe they could’ve done something awesome together. But Tim has been put in charge of… More »

Timbaland – “Know Bout Me” (Feat. Jay Z, Drake & James Fauntleroy)

It’s almost comforting to know that Timbaland is still the sort of person who will recruit Jay Z and Drake, two of the world’s most successful rappers, to drop verses on his single, and he’ll still insist on giving himself the first verse. That’s the case on Timbo’s new single “Know Bout Me,” which, despite… More »

Justin Timberlake – “Tunnel Vision” Video (NSFW)

The comparisons between Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke essentially haven’t ceased since Thicke released his falsetto-laden, guitar&B track “Lost Without U.” However, it was usually Timberlake being exalted as the better of the two until this year, due to the crossover appeal of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and its video filled with topless women. Timberlake i… More »
