Justin Timberlake Releases New Single 'TKO'
The pop singer debuts the second track from his upcoming album, "The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2."
Following a day of playful teasing on social media, Justin Timberlake delivered on a promise to his fans of a new song late Thursday with the release of "TKO."
Clocking in at 7:06, the epic track is JT's latest collaboration with pal Timbaland, whose DNA (swinging groove, churning synths, layered vocals) is evident. Timbaland even muscles his way in with some memorable lyrics, namely, "She killed me with that coochie-coo!"
Vocally, Timberlake is in top form; lyrically, "TKO" leans heavy on boxing metaphors with lines like, "I'm out for the count, yeah girl, you knock me out."
"TKO" is the second track released off Timberlake's upcoming The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, due Sept. 27. It follows the release of "Take Back the Night" in July.
