Timbaland, esteemed US hip-hop producer, releases his latest single 'The Way I Are' on the back of a tour with Justin Timberlake which has seen sold-out dates at the O2 centre.

The single features Keri Hilson, who appeared with Nelly Furtado on 'Promiscuous', on vocals, which add a bright subtlety to a track that is repetitive and otherwise unremarkable. Lyrically poor, the backing music that Timbaland has produced is low on drive and feels lazily constructed.

Not a track for those unaccustomed to Timbaland, the song doesn't really go anywhere and drags on from about half way in.
