For the past couple of weeks I have been obsessed with a song. Everytime it comes on the radio I get hyper. I constantly listen to it on myspace and youtube (I know I should just buy it on itunes).
The song is Give it to me (featuring Nelly Furtado and Timberlake) by Timbaland. The opening 16 bars of the beat make me drool just thinking about it now.
The song got me thinking about the assault that Timbaland has made on the Billboard charts in the last year. This is his 6th #1 on the Billboard hot 100 singles chart.
He was responsible and/or featured in….
1) Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado
2) Say it right by Nelly Furtado
3) SexyBack by Justin Timberlake
4) My Love by Justin Timberlake
5) What Goes Around (Comes Back Around) by Justin Timberlake
6) Give it to me.
It is funny how certain time eras belong to certain performers. Jay Z, Boyz II Men, and Mariah Carey make me think of the middle 90’s. Boybands and Britney etc owned the turn of the century. There was a time when Diddy and Mase could do no wrong and the same can be said for 50 cent. I don’t know that anyone will even be conscious of it but 6 #1’s is a big deal.
It’s weird because I still don’t think he can sing or perform but when it comes to production the man is a genius who owns American music right now. Just thought I would educate people to take notice who are out of touch:)
You know I hate that song. 😛
And Furtado and Timberlake need to stop dominating the Billboards..yuck.
They’re both good artists…but the lyrics to all these top songs are disgusting. No matter what the beat sounds like. What happened to the good ol’ Billboards that played heavy metal with okay lyrics..stuff like Three Days Grace? 😀 (They won last year)
