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 hook surrounded by sardonic putdowns like “Nothin’ I hate more than a nigga with bitch tendencies/ That’s like 99% of y’all” and “Tell them broke boys get the fuck from around me.” The video is shadowy and hypnotic, and Timbaland hangs around in the background showing off his find. Charlamagne Tha God provides some spoken word background to set the scene. “Tim dropped the beat in the studio and it instantly gave me a hip-hop vibe,” Tink told FADER. “I wanted the video to match that same feeling. Raw and simple.” Watch below.
Tink’s debut studio full-length is expected next year.
