"Give It to Me"

A leaked cut from Timbaland's upcoming solo album, "Give It to Me" is a moderately catchy tune with a Timbabeat that balances clubby sleekness and tweety synths with pumped-up clip-clop percussion. Timberlake sing-raps a snaky melody in a big, powerful rumble that has more presence than his usual cameos, but Nelly steals the spotlight.
