Debuted at his recent UK shows in support of Jay Z, ‘Know Bout Me’ is the latest single to emerge from the studio of superproducer Timbaland.

A return to the slippery, jagged pop that Tim made his own back in the late ’90s and early ’00s, ‘Know Bout Me’ sports a mercifully brief contribution from his touring mate, and a more substantial contribution from Drake. The big surprise though is the refreshingly cold hook from James Fauntleroy – on their own each element would likely fall flat, but all together the alchemical blend is absolutely spot on.

All this bodes very well indeed for Timbaland’s upcoming full-length Textbook Timbo, which should be out soon.
