“And when the music’s gone and there’s no more songs, no more songs / And when the snare is gone and that hi-hat’s gone, I still got 808,” Timbaland sings on the boastful tune with his trademark layered vocals.
Later Brandy adds, “I’m like the bass in the trunk, if you want I can ride the wave / Baby just tell me where you’re at and I’m on my way.”

Overall, “808″ is a nice little jam that, if anything, proves Timbaland still knows his way around a good hook, and that Brandy is sorely missed on the radio.
