Last night, “If I,” a new Timbaland-produced track that brings “My Love” collaborators T.I. and Justin Timberlake back together, made its way to the Internet, and while it’s not as future-soaked as the original track, it’s got a stuttery, pinging guitar line and one of those descending keyboard lines that bring to mind what it looks like when an object (here a flash of skin, I’m going to guess) glistens—you know, the type that Oran “Juice” Jones employed to a precipitous effect in “The Rain.” Also, the lyrics are kind of filthy! But the overall effect is not so much icky as it is hot, I’m not going to lie. YouTube rip after the jump.
