Timbaland feat. Nelly Furtado & SoShy – “Morning After Dark” – (2009)

Everything Timbaland touched in 2007 was golden. He ruled the year. His first hit that year featured Nelly Furtado and so did this, the first single from the follow-up album, released in 2009. It was not as strong as anything from 2007. Timbaland was responsible for Nelly Furtado’s transformation from quirky to, well, hot. And she’s the best part of this song. Timbaland is singing very strangely and it makes the song feel like a joke – not like it’s terrible, but like he’s trying to make it funny or something. The response from fans was hit or miss, with the song charting at very different positions all over the world. It wasn’t a great follow-up, but he’s got a new album due out this summer, so we’ll see if he can bounce back.
