Timbaland is taking you to outer space with his new single “UFO.” It features his protégé Tink and Future, the original Pluto-exploring extraterrestrial. The beat is pure throwback Timbo, with chunky woodblock percussion and gentle guitar strings. The song is all about the specter of infidelity.
“I’m a player but it caught me off guard,” croons Future, when he finds out he’s been played.
Tink keeps her emotional armor up, noting that “we all lyin’ about who we fu**in’, we all do.”
It’s a compelling meeting of old-school and cutting-edge talent.
