Timbaland is sticking to the promo trail for his upcoming album, Shock Value II. Sunday he performed new single “Morning After Dark” with SoShy and Nelly Furtado at the American Music Awards, and last night the trio hit up The Tonight Show to belt out the tune for Conan O’Brien.
Although, “belt” might not exactly be the proper term. It sounded like Timbaland was sing-rapping over a guide track (or three), but you could still hear his live voice despite all the advanced technology. As for Nelly Furtado—well, you be the judge.
Would you call that whispering or mumbling? Maybe Nelly’s just resting her voice for her next performance. On the flip side, SoShy sounded quite lively.
And at least all the promotion is working. As of today, “Morning After Dark” is currently up to #36 on the iTunes Top Songs chart.
