Duran Duran's Dry Hump
Who knew that Timberod and Timbaland would do a song for Duran Duran that was a mirror image of their own music? What a shocker! It is typical Timba: a repetitive, thumping groove. One that will make dudes who don't know Duran exclaim, "This shizz is hawt!" as they pick up a stripper in a club called Platinum or Bed.
It might grow on me, but for now Nite Runner is the sound of me getting old. There is a point at which we'll be so saturated in Timbaland's sound that the music will become dated very quickly. I feel like he is the most popular kid in school and I am a geek staring at him from behind my notebook.
Hear Nite Runner streaming at EW Online.
Meanwhile, back at the Converse All Star store, Sugababes are turning into Avril/ Kelly Clarkson
