01: Justin Timberlake [ft. T.I.] «My Love» [Jive]
Some people still get gassed that we like Justin Timberlake, as if there were some honor in denying good songs. But Timberlake is the new King of Pop, and just like the old King, he’s not scared to sing like a girl as long as his tracks are thrillers. We appreciate him for that, for taking the throne and working with producers who take risks and constantly surprise us.
Despite leaking as the worst mp3 ever, «My Love» felt like an instant favorite. It jolted us so much we gave it a five-star review after some wishful (but futile) EQ’ing. Days later, usually fussy DJs played it in clubs, and some smart guy made t-shirts that said, «Atlantic Records for T.I. Clearance», the vocal stamp on the leaked track meant to discourage pirates. Maybe they were being ironic, but we like to think not.
The thing is, «My Love» wasn’t made to please hipsters or blow up the internet. Timbaland, and his unsung protégé, Danja, wanted to make the song of the year and got us by default. Their audacious synthesizer fury turned JT’s little valentine into sentimental napalm. You want his love? You’re melting in it. Yes, T.I. called himself «candle guy», but «My Love» still won, proving that even the coolest artists (and coolest songs) don’t have to always be so cool.
Además, «SexyBack» ha quedado en la #4 posición de los videos de 2006 en VH1.
