Anonymous said...

Okay but im always gonna think to myself "how much better the song couldve been with Danja on it"

Anonymous said...

Fireeee!!!

Anonymous said...

Hit...although I expected much more

Anonymous said...

yeh lol danja would've of murdered this plus marcella with her crazy forward skip looping

this really isnt a new sound its madonnas 4 minutes

HIT! HIT! HIT! HIT !
I love IT!

Louis-Seb said...

It sounds a lot like Elevator...

But it's not as good.

Really not sure about this one.

Frederick said...

That Marcella forward looping shit is CRAZY! "She's Fine" is still my joint for that!

Lemme don the headphones, verdict in a few.

Frederick said...

j'aime ça que j'écoute! a nice Halloween track what with Tim's voice modulation... but I wanna hear Tim SING like with James Fauntleroy.

is this gonna be a concept album like Chris Cornell where everything interlinks? the breakdown at the end makes me think so.

Black Arrow said...

^Oh yeah. That would be preeeetty cool :P
But he also does these beat-changes on a lot of his productions without connecting the tracks. Like on some FutureSex/LoveSounds songs.

I want to hear SoShy really sing on a Timbo beat like she did on "Dorothy" or her other songs! Those voices feel too much computerized sometimes.

Anonymous said...

yeah sounds alot like elevator! no new sound here

Big-A said...

it ain't produced solely by Tim, JRoc on board as well

Anonymous said...

disappointed, justin will bring the goods.

Anonymous said...

The beat is pretty "typical" for Timbaland nothing really innovative or new. I don't see this song blowing up like it needs to so I really think SV2 is going to get pushed back.

Big-A said...

a Top 40 hit song is for the very most part a PAID song - always keep that in mind. so don't worry. the label makes sure it will be a "hit".

Black Arrow said...

thanks for the info. Our source didn't tell us that bit lol.
Updated...

Frederick said...

@ Big-A... that's like paying for cable and still having to watch advertisements. kinda sour about that.

Venture said...

When did Marcella start water boarding/water-surfing ?

What the hell is forward looping? Lol... you mean her simply reversing a part of a track? Wow, you guys get wowed so easily... lol

Frederick said...

lol no sense in acting blasé about everything!

Venture said...

Big-A, I think you have a misconception about how hits become hits. Promotion can be paid for, but you can't "buy a spot" on the charts, if that is the case, we'd have multiple number ones.

This is a hit. Great beat. Could it have been better with Tim and Danja? Probably... would it have been better with Tim alone? High probability...

But... this J-Roc character... I don't know why I'm annoyed with his interference... and I'm not hating... cause I would of hated on Danja, Danja is a cool dude, and his production is on point with Tim.

J-Roc might be a cool dude in person too, I'm just not feeling him as a producer/composer, but as a musician I heard he is dope.

Frederick said...

Payola is illegal in the United States.

Venture said...

Nice word usage Fred.

Nah, its just that I was like... "wtf... is... forward looping..." i thought it was some type of ninja method she pulled. So I was searching, and then... I was like... oh... they talking about the reverse thing. Then I wanted my minutes back from Google, so I came here to be mean lol.

Big-A said...

Dear Venture, I know how radio works a bit. To summarize this very complex system of how (often) songs get into rotation, I will just repeat: a top 40 hit is for the most part a PAID hit. period.

Frederick said...

lol as a former on-air personality I wish I got paid to play songs on the radio... then again, no one cared about my station all that much. I'm still mad I didn't get to do the phoner with The-Dream. some other twerp did >=/

Big-A said...

I am NOT talking about the traditional payola like yo here's 1000 dollars, play my song

Frederick said...

you're talking about the label pays an artist to "sell out" or something? that would explain nelly furtado's Loose album.

Edward "PoetED" Sanders, Jr. said...

Song is definitely a Hit. Timbo once again proves he is King!!!

Frederick said...

whatever happened to KATY PERRY huh?

and, I'd like to see Tim break an Asian artist... preferably a hot female Asian. Utada's out cuz

1 her teeth are crooked
2 she's nearing her 30s
3 her boobs aren't nearly as big as Katy Perry's

edwin said...

he needs to work with jay sean that would be dope gotta rep mah indian brother haha

Anonymous said...

Who is this MARCELLA ???
Can somebody give me a link to her songs ?

Anonymous said...

LOL @ Anonymous 13:03

Marcella isnt an artist. She's mix engineer/producer/writer for N.A.R.S Records i.e. Danja's Record Label. Involved with a lot of Danja and Timbo's work in the past includinf the hit single "Way I Are", etc.


@PoetED - N.A.R.S Records

If he likes it, then this is definitely a HIT!

Anonymous said...

Can you tell me a song where she did this forward looping thing ?

levi1991 said...

what is this rubbish? I'm sorry unless it's the new moon theme song it will fail I mean how can the same guy who made Ginuwine 'Pony' make this crap?

Anonymous said...

how do you NOT know who Marcella is!??!!? damnn!! wow...ok the song:::

its alright.!.!. not super great! but i love it cuz its timbo and maybe thats why I like it!! but i think its pretty bland doesnt really want a new listener to keep listening..and it has autotune..dont care for it.. coulda done better with just his voice

SOSHY IS HOT SHITT!! bammmm!

Anonymous said...

just remembered this but timbo DID say that it wasnt gonna be as hot as the others which keeps my expectations even higher than they were!! XD

Anonymous said...

this sounded alot better on DJ Steve's laptop lol

EPIC said...

nothing special


no shock from shock value so far

Edward "PoetED" Sanders, Jr. said...

Marcella does a lot of crazy effects... check out this song (Ciara) around 3:40-4:18... Also Demo (Timbs main mix engineer) does these types of effects as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZYUnvjKR-k

Also this song (Snoop Dogg) around 5:00 - 5:15. On this song you have to listen very closely though. It's not a noticeable as the Ciara record.

yo poet ed!! did she also freak that ending to polow and ester deans "Drop It Low" cus i know she mixed it.

2:57- (drop it drop it low girl girl girl drop drop low low low Girl!! ) LOL So Siccckk (missy voice)

i luv that part CRAZY!! lol

Venture said...

Every time I think Demo, I think Marcella, and when I think Marcella I think Demo... hmmm I guess its because of the work they did together I guess. :)

Venture said...

Yeah, she some work with Polow recently and will continue too I believe... Polow digs her.

Edward "PoetED" Sanders, Jr. said...

Yea Marcella did mix the Esther Dean record "Drop It Low"... I forgot about that one. Good call Anonymous!

Can someone confirm this? According to this article from Billboard.com, Gucci Mane is on the album:

jonneymendoza said...

i like the beat its sick man. But not sure of timbo's rapping. i could see Drake, TI or even Kanye west destroying this track with their flow!

Anonymous said...

the Shakira track is better !

and Gucci Mane is a FUCKING JOKE, he's in that Plies n Soulja Boy worst rappers alive category.

i hope he's not on the album !!!!!!!
