"Give It To Me" (feat. Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake)

Furtado and Timberlake pretty much owe their success in ’06 to Timbaland. You could have had Nelly Furtado sing in Yiddish and “Maneater” would have still been a hot song. Hell, even Chewbacca could have brought sexy back with Timbo on the boards. So how does Timbaland guarantee success on his first single from the forthcoming Shock Value? Make another hot track, duh. As always with Timbaland, guest artist are like sandwich bread: necessary, but the meat is what you really look forward to. In this case, it’s a familiar dish: eastern style percussion, space-age synths and a couple of vocal effects thrown in for good measure. Nothing new, but, unfortunately for every other producer, he’s so ahead of the game he can afford to slack off once in a while. Besides, it’s not like he’s trying to impress. The entire track consists of Timbaland and co. bragging about how great they already are. “I get half a mil for my beats, you get half a grand” he taunts. The sad thing is that he’s probably being modest.
