Timbaland ft. Drake - Say Something

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Timbaland
Album:
Shock Value 2

In order to get the public properly excited about the release of his upcoming third solo album, beatmaster Timbaland will be releasing a steady stream of singles, starting with last week’s listener approved Morning After Dark and continuing with the official release of Say Something, a head-nodding track featuring teen heartthrob turned legit emcee Drake. First and foremost, Timbo’s never been a strong rapper, even if he does kind of sound like Bun B here, but what surprised me a little bit on Say Something was the beat. Sure it’s catchy, but this is pretty simple stuff for the usually rhythmically complex production work he built his reputation on. It’s good, but it lacks that “wow” factor. On the other hand I have to give it up to Drake, who carries the track with a subtle (slightly auto-tuned) chorus and a hell of a verse. Stay tuned for even more instant hit material off Timbaland’s upcoming Shock Value 2, set to drop November 23.
