Video: Tink – ‘Around the Clock’

Timbaland and Tink

Tink is taking over in 2015. Timbaland introduces his 19-year-old protégée in the dark and gritty video for “Around the Clock” featuring “The Breakfast Club’s” Charlamagne Tha God. The Chicago rapper-singer spits some killer bars while flanked by Timbo, who creeps in the shadows.

“Tim dropped the beat in the studio and it instantly gave me a hip-hop vibe,” Tink told The FADER. “I wanted the video to match that same feeling. Raw and simple.”

After being introduced through Da Internz, Timbaland signed Tink to his label Mosley Music Group, where she will release her debut in 2015. “I will put my whole entire money in my account on her. She is a superstar,” he said.

Watch Timbaland show off his shining star.

Video: Jennifer Hudson f/ Timbaland – ‘Walk It Out’

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson plays hard to get in the video for her Timbaland-produced single “Walk It Out.” Shot in New York, the X-directed clip follows the Oscar winner (who goes by J-Hud in this video) through the streets.

When one guy tries to holler at her, she keeps it moving, but he doesn’t give up easily. She runs into him at the park and on her way home, where eventually she gives in. She visits the beauty salon and busts out some choreography with her girls. Plus, look for cameos from Timbaland and her husband David Otunga.

Hudson’s third album is due later this summer featuring contributions from Pharrell Williams, Babyface, and R. Kelly.

Get to steppin’ with J-Hud.
