with all do respect to those who love an admire timbo,but what da FUCK is this?
this track is something out of the disney channel
has timbo gone soft...wtf...wtf...wtf is this crap...
fuck michelle branch...she made me curse and i usually dont...i feel like pulling the hair on my balls(seriously excuse my profanity)
timbo what have u done???????????
i've always stood by timbo and ill continue to do so,right after am finished throwin a fit to this rubbish of a track...
ok someone needs to come up with an excuse as to y timbo did this song...this isnt the "music" he has been talking about all these years...
am just gonna stop now and let someone else continue this...
this is one track am not letting my friends hear...
believe it or,for the 1st time in 10 yrs,am actually ashamed of a timbo track :(

man this is not as good as it sounded before... nice voice but come on too much going on i think... need to listen to this with good headphones....

Venture said...

In Timbo's defense... ain't nothing wrong with going "soft". Everything doesn't have to be hard.

You can't get "magic" from hard... that isn't how magic works. Magic is soft... mystic... alluding... lifting, fluttery etc...

My thing... as long as the production is good... the song is good... overall good music. I can give a flying squirrel how "hard" or "soft" music is vaguely. Now, if this was a hardcore gangsta track, and it was this soft... then yes... I'd give it the Scooby Doo "huuurgghh?". But it isn't.

I like this, and for what it is.


I've done hard tracks, soft tracks, some that can't even be describable... thing is... music is music... I respect if you don't like the sounds... but this is Pop/Country Pop mix... ain't nothing hard coming out of this except the coins she and Tim pick up.

idk... It works for what it is supposed to be. But tim does look "soft" in this video. Another horrible video from the MMG camp. What are all those colors for? You know for dang sure Tim is not in the studio during the recording process. He always says that he leaves and the engineer takes over.

Whatever... im already used to this stuff from him.... my question is when is he gonna change it again. I'm just waitin on that. Needs to go give his sister Missy some tracks and get more Grammys!

moon1283 said...

ok i agree the production is not as horrible...scrap that it is horrible,i feel like am listening to a song for a barbie commercial
the thing is timbo's soft songs are hard at core...
this is not the innovative timbo am used to...
i just listened to eminem's recovery and that shit got crazy productions...
some of them got me missing timbo's beats coz they're so much like his
is it all about the money now for timbo???
am not dissing timbo,its just hard to watch timbo regress to the rest of the crap pple r doing...timbo is like a teacher to me...i've learned ,loved and appreciated music through him...
i dont want to seem happy(as in gay),but am tearing up inside...
lets just hope this is the silence before the storm...

This is one of the best Timbo tracks I heard this year. AMAAAAAAZING!

Pop music to a higher level. I'm addicted to it.

davidprimer said...

This has such a nice flow and sound and no this is not for the money. Timbo is making new sounds, he's bored with making the same old beats!

I'm glad he changed and I'm more enjoying his new work than music with Magoo.. Always the same old beats. I have listened to everything Timbo did from the beginning until now and I really understand him.

Props for this.

Amir said...

Agree wid Venturein every word.

As a Hip-Hop Lover, i Cant stand it... its 2 "Lovely" 4 Me...

But I Can definitely Feel Magic In This Record...N ya cant Blame Timbo 4 tha "Pop" Style, Cuz ya cant Forget that its a commercial song

man, i really enjoyed this track! although a really like Timbo's productions like 'morning after dark', 'promiscuous', '4 minutes'...this track does have that 'something else' on and, i don't know, it's hard to find a Tim's production that i don't really enjoy...he's different from the others

eugggh!

I'm sorry. I like just about every genre of music out there but this here sounds like it was copied out of mid-90's Disney-pop. It's not BAD --aside from the forced adlibs in the beginning and end.

Timbaland just has no direction these days. You can tell he's searching for a sound to run with. Just hasn't found anything Post-Danja.

Bilza said...

it's ok. It depends if you like this sort of music. I'm open to anything really. Another of those "If We Ever Meet Again" type tracks (which I dislike) but thankfully this is a lot better. The video is cheap lol. Coloured shapes melting and floating around her? huh? LMAO!

Swan said...

this is a nice song. Take it for what it is. A cool pop/country song. Michelle did a good job.

The beat itself is really dope. It's simple but complex at the same time.
Very nice song..

I must be in twilight Zone...
This is officially the worse Timbaland production I have ever heard! :(

The sad part is In the video, he acts like its that jam!!??
Timbaland needs to get rid of those anal probes around him because, I cant believe nobody told him that track is horrendous.

Frederick said...

Y'all know you would all be "I JUST PLAYED THIS 100X TIMBO THE KING" if it were a Keri/Brandy track with different lyrics. Don't even front.

There's not much that separates this song from Drum Life, aside from the drums not hitting as hard and Michelle's vocals being on the weak side/"NA NA NA NAAA" (I always feel that that's a waste of song time).

moon1283 said...

it seems the @lez carmen is the only person that agrees with me on this...this is the worst timbo production period...
timbo said he is mixing country with his "hard,grungy beats"...
what is hard on this song?
wtf is grungy on this song?
and wtf is timbo sniffin these days???
maybe he's doin drugs...coz thats the only explanation for this...
timbo is high...
maybe he is teasing the world and preparing us for somethin...
i bet they wouldnt use this song for a Barney commercial...actually they would...

alexane said...

nice track ! lovely

Lez Carmen said...

I understand why people say its a nice track, yeah its a Ok tiny bopper track with nice vocals but, being a Timbaland production I will still have to give it a big fat no for the simple fact that his is not using his full pontental of late and I will not stand for it LOL. Sorry Timmy, you should not have set such a high standard for me to judge by and expect from you.
Find your way home soon!

@Federick
100x!!!! Damn, you deserve a prize LOL.

soshy said her album is more "organic"...
timbo said that his new sound is "organic"--->getaway
i hope to god he didnt fish soshy's album or brandy's coz these r the only albums am looking forward to this yr besides eminem's
timbo is da king but i need a Saviour this yr...i need good music after gaga fished everything...
timbo should realize that his fans have developed an extremely sensitive ear for complex productions.we all developed musically coz of him...and withdrawal sucks
