New Music: Justin Timberlake – ‘TKO’


Following “Take Back the Night,” Justin Timberlake is back for another round with “TKO,” the second single off The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. After teasing with Instagram videos throughout the day, he debuts the 7-minute song, produced by Timbaland.

“I’m out for the count/ Yeah girl, you knock me out/ It’s just a TKO,” sings JT.

The follow-up to the best-selling album of 2013 arrives Sept. 30 featuring appearances from Drake (“Cabaret”) and Jay Z (“Murder”).

“The songs that I released in March just reminded me of summertime a little bit more and the songs that are coming out this month felt a little darker so they made me feel like the fall/winter collection,” Timberlake told Ryan Seacrest.

He is expected to debut some of the new tracks at this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

Justin Timberlake Takes on Las Vegas for ‘Runner Runner’ Premiere

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake hit up Sin City for the premiere of Runner Runner last night. The pop star arrived with his wife Jessica Biel and posed with his co-stars Ben Affleck, Anthony Mackie, and Gemma Arterton. Fans flocked to the casino floor as he made his way through Planet Hollywood.

“I got excited when I first read the script because it reminded me of a type of genre of thriller that you and I probably grew up with,” Timberlake told Ryan Seacrest of the crime drama. “The characters are really intelligent and the movie could go either direction. When I was reading it, it wasn’t clear ‘This is the bad guy and this is the good guy.’ It felt like a nice little twist and also an homage to the thrillers I liked growing up.”

On Thursday, he sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview on “Today,” where he spoke about growing up in the spotlight and the controversy surrounding Miley Cyrus.

“I don’t know that I have a definitive thought in one direction or the other about it,” he said. “I think she’s really smart, and I think she’s really talented. I’m not saying I agree with the presentation, but I also feel like every 10 to 15 years we pick somebody that this is what we’re going to do with them, is we’re going to make them the model of who we want our daughters to be or not be.”

His album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 drops Sept. 30, while Runner Runner opens in theaters on Oct. 4.

On Sept. 30, he will release the second half of his album The 20/20 Experience with 11 all-new songs including collaborations with Drake and Jay Z.

“If you could imagine you’re 16 and she’s everything you thought. She’s Marilyn Monroe and then you meet her older sister; everything that’s dark and wrong about her at that age is why you become infatuated with her,” he told T Magazine of the follow-up to this year’s best-selling album.
