Timbaland featuring SoShy & Nelly Furtado “Morning After Dark”/ Mary J Blige featuring Timbaland “Skycap”

As if having every other form of entertainment be usurped by an obsession with everything vampire-related wasn’t enough, Timbaland looks to Twlight, True Blood, and the like as a major influence on “Morning After Dark”, the official first single from his Shock Value 2 album.

Consequence featuring Kanye West & John Legend “Whatever U Want”/ (Nyce Back To Life Remix)
