Justin Timberlake drops new song, 'TKO'

The second half of Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience" won't arrive until September 30, but here's a sample of what's to come.

The 32-year-old singer has released a new track called "TKO," a bouncy single that heavily features one of Timberlake's favorite collaborators, Timbaland.


At just over seven minutes, "TKO" is about as lengthy as much of what's found on the first "20/20 Experience," which was released in March. But unlike that album's light-hearted, swooning love story, Timberlake's "20/20 Experience - 2 of 2" is expected to be darker, and "TKO" lives up to that.

"Yeah it hurt, won't lie/Still can't see/Think I saw you with another guy," Timberlake sings. "Tell me how you could be so low/swinging after the bell and after the whistle blows ... this ain't the girl that I used to know. I'm out for the count, girl you knocked me out."

Expect to hear more of Timberlake's "dangerous" side at the iHeartRadio festival this weekend, where the star is expected to preview some of his new music.

What do you think of "TKO"?

    TKO Timberlakes new song, is ASSA All the way! His music and his lyrics is understood, mixed with the sounds is ever so addicting. The music remains in your head long after the song has ended, along with the lyrics. Another HIT talk about a serious musician/actor he is one of a kind, and must thank him for creating music that is here to stay, he can only get better because the man keeps growing sharing with so many. THANK YOU JUSTIN...Love It! Timbaland is Supreme. Great Combo.

    Remember those five seconds back in August of 2008, when fresh new face Sarah Palin was going to save John McCain’s flailing presidential run and revive the Republican Party with her legs and her winking and her lipstick? But then a funny thing happened on the way to the White House — she opened her mouth !!

    It's one of those songs that will grow on you, become number one, and several years down the road, you will relive the memories from the song while at an amusement park.

      It's a grating, irritating, draining experience to listen to this narcisist's music. 6 minutes of wasted life.
