Thank you Leigh...

April 3, 2007 Timbaland aka One of the most proficiently creative producers of our generation, dropped Shock Value, his second solo studio album. Leigh played this track, laden with Nina Simone's Sinnerman sample (can we say stunning? yes, we can.) today while entertaining guests at his MTV cribs-like spot. I made him press the repeat button three times.

I cannot fathom 1) How I slept on Shock Value and 2) How I missed out on hearing this track the first time around over a year ago. My faith in production skills has been restored.

Xoxo - S.
