The Way I Are

by Timbaland feat Keri Hilson & D.O.E.

"The Way I Are" music video by Timbaland

This is one song I'm very fond of at the moment. I really find the musical arrangements done by Timbaland to be works of wonder. Maybe he has the music world equivalent of the Midas Touch or something because everything he touches now seems to turn to gold. Take this song for example, what a great hit it is. Why they don't play this more often at clubs and pubs, I cannot understand.

So far, every song released from the Timbaland Presents Shock Value are hits. It is fair to say he successfully transformed the bird-girl-wannabe Nelly Furtado from someone who sings really whiny, I'm high on drugs songs to a real entertainer that can really hold the attention of her listeners. Ask any teenager that loves her current hits like Give It To Me and Promiscuous if they knew she's the same crazy chick that sang I'm Like A Bird. They'll probably shake their heads in disbelief. I'm sure you yourself can see the improvement from her hippie chick, tree hugging, Tweety Bird days.

Even Justin Timberlake has benefited from collaborating with Timbaland. Do you actually believe he can bring SexyBack all by himself?'s the sexy man behind his back that made it all possible. Wait a minute, that didn't sound right. Oh heck, you know what I mean.

I would really like to know what magic he can conjure with other artistes. Seriously, if he can transform a cuckoo like Nelly Furtado, he can do it to anybody. On second thoughts, maybe not. There's just no hope for this guy.

William Hung's She Bangs anyone?


  1. yea, it's a good song.

    have u heard his new one, though? i'm loving that more. in fact, i can't get it out of my head.

    'apologize'- one republic

    but i wonder if it's to your taste :)

  2. yea, i've heard that one awhile back but it's not really to my liking. it's not bad really but you don't seem to get that "timbaland feeling" from the song.

  3. i agree with you. even nelly had an awesome comeback. Thumbs up!
