Is This Textbook Timbo?
Last Friday Timbaland released the track “Them Jeans” on his official Soundcloud account. It’s another track revealed of his upcoming album “Textbook Timbo” (though it was briefly also called “Opera Noir”), following the release earlier of “UFO”, featuring Tink and Future, and “Know Bout Me”, featuring Jay Z, James Fauntleroy and Drake, two years ago!
Funny enough, to me, it sounds like nothing like textbook Timbo. The track “Them Jeans”, featuring rap trio Migos, sounds like it’s been influenced by 90s Hip Hop and is actually pretty straight forward for Timbaland.
No syncopated rhythms, no overly heavy sound effects, but yes, very electronic! And you know, I’m a digital girl, so I love the electronics…
