Normally new music comes out on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday even. But leave it to Justin Timberlake to break the mold and release a new song on a Friday. Justin has been teasing his new single “TKO” all day by posting snippets on Instagram and Twitter, but now the full song is here. Happy weekend, eh?!
“TKO,” which is, upon first listen, clearly produced by JT’s BFF Timbaland, is the second single from The 20/20 Experience Part 2, the first being “Take Back The Night.” Also, the album comes out the same week as Justin’s next film, Runner, Runner, so clearly that is not a coincidence. Anyway, listen to the seven-minute-long track here:
I kind of get Justified vibes from this single, and I also like it more than I like “Take Back The Night.” I also liked “Mirrors” more than I liked “Suit & Tie” so maybe I just have a thing for liking his second single per album more than the first one? I don’t even know. I also don’t even know what “TKO” means but it’s a sexy song and I like it.
“TKO” is on iTunes now! What do you think of the song? Are you going to catch JT at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this weekend? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
