Justin Timberlake 7 Minute “TKO” Is New Single from “20/20” Part 2


If it took as long to knock someone out as it takes Justin Timberlake to sing “TKO” fighters would need bathroom breaks. I don’t like this single as much as “Taking Back the Night.” Also Womack & Womack once had a great R&B hit called “Love TKO” which was a lot better. Sometimes JT’s songs are too long, and built on cliches. I’m much fonder of “Holy Grail.” But for sheer volume, attitude, and clear purpose, JT will get all the Grammys this year. It’s his show on January 26th. I hope Timbaland, his producer, has a new tux all picked out.

PS Really 7 minutes?
