Timberlake’s Tunnel

We have had the comeback single which divided his fans, Suit & Tie, we had the the big Number1 single, Mirrors, which more or less united the fans and now we have the third single, Tunnel Vision, which will titillate the fans or at least the video will.

Tunnel Vision, whilst not a bad track itself, leaves me with a feeling of haven’t we heard this all before but done better with Aaliyah and is Justin Timberlake hoping that a little controversy will sell the third single from The 20/20 Experience? That being said,Timberlakes video is not as crude as Robin Thicke‘s unrated Blurred Lines video.

The production is everything you would expect from anything associated with Timbaland, however, I can’t help feeling that Justin’s vocals should be higher in the mix and how many times can Timbaland yelp freaky freaky freaky girl before it becomes passe?

Tunnel Vision will serve to keep the sales of The 20/20 Experience ticking over and help to promote the upcoming festivals that Justin will be playing.

Robin Thicke feat T.I & Pharrell – Blurred Lines

What do you get if you splice Marvin Gaye‘s Got To Give It Up & Madonna’s Give It To Me, with a dash of saucy lyrics throw in a rapper (T.I) & one of the men of the moment Pharrell Williams; plus a little controversy (the unrated video) you end up with Blurred Lines which is shaping up to be Thicke’s biggest ever UK hit.

Robin Thicke is no overnight sensation, think of him as Justin Timberlake but without commercial success, apart from his 2007 hit Lost Without U, however Blurred Lines, taken from the forthcoming album of the same name is about to change this.

Blurred Lines is a record that will get any party groovin  for sure, with an infectious yelp, a Prince like falsetto and a heavy bass.  Is there an act this year that Pharrell wont gatecrash?
