    Real talk, Jay-Z’s verse was wack. Content was very par (and pls don’t be searching for strands of lines to prove me wrong; u know I’m not lying), and delivery was sub par.

    That’s to be honest – on a song like this, with the buzz it got before it dropped, Jigga did not deliver. Period.

    Great Timbo production on this one though.

  • Nathanial Hörnblowér

    Hov my favorite, but his features have been so uninspired. JT ft. Lay-Z… What more can he say?

  • Mattyboy

    Hot garbage!

  • Beezy

    Dope track, though Hov came weak as fuck on this one. The greatest rapper of all time should at least TRY. This was a throw away verse.

    • B.Dot

      Yeah, i didn’t like Hov’s verse.

  • Inside I’m Ice!, Outside I’m Lava!

    I remember a time when no one use to disclose b-days, fear of identity stolen

  • DMVinyourchick

    Hova missed with this one, for some reason I can hear schoolboy on this

  • poetic assasin

    love the track – but yea his verse was dry …. but then again he could have written it for the audience that will be bumpin this all day everyday.

  • PistolPistol

    Sounds weird hearing a white boy say… “I be on my….” Juss sayin

    Wack track
    Timbo was the best part

  • salutethedaon

    this is okay at its best…. jsy may be loosing his touch… this it will grow on me… for now waiting for this… http://bit.ly/U66BSN..

  • Say It Ain’t So

    Track is ok after 1 spin it will probably grow on me but Jay-Z was not needed on here it was a waste

    I also like how these 2 are still coming up with new shit and being creative with music

  • zeee

    mystikal should be on the remix

  • michelle michelle

    sexy af

  • michelle michelle

    Well I guess we know how Jay wifed up B. He went through the parents, Tina – i love her, Matthew – I’m a make sure she’s star.

  • Respect

    Now Im on my Suit and Tie shit, Suit and Tie shit

  • black god lover

    Jay-z allways drops rubbish features before his album drops …. he builds up anticipation for his verse’s …FACT

  • Evil

    T-R-A-S-H!
    Why the fuck does Jigga jump on bullshit like this?
    JT should have taken a few more years away from music cos this is garbage.

  • 9th wonder

    yeah this that feel good grown shit lil boys and girls leave the site immediatly

  • Isee

    Some of the best timbo production ever. JT was a bit off, decent start though. Ill riddles by Jay-Z.

  • ODC

    i like albums produced by one producer.
    Tim does his thing. SMS

  • majormar

    i like it… hov verse too. timbo did his thing tho

  • Ivy blue Hov

    The problem with hov is that he is always compared to hov…… People always comapre whatever he does to what he has done in the past. This was an ok, verse but by hov’s standard, it is garbage. I am the biggest hov fan ever, but i am getting a bit tired of defending some of his lacklustre performances. We know he has nothing to prove anymore, but he either get serious with this rapping shit or leave it alone. Plus he needs to drop that new solo work. I am tired of this shit!!!!!!!

  • HarryQ

    The track is nice, do think You Guys could have done a better Job, expression wise,
    but hey! its J-n- J…(LOL)
    Hov the verse coulda been more timely,….*Perfection*, u kno this!, Jay
    ….you may want a new verse….

  • JT FEAT. JAY Z

    HOW IRONIC THAT THIS WOULD AUTOMATICALLY SHOOT TO #1 ON TOP 5 POST. RAP RADAR BE SOO SUSPECT AT TIMES. LMFAO

    AS FOR THE SONG….

    BEAT WAS INCREDIBLE. THANK YOU TIMBALAND.
    JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE SOUNDED LIKE ROBIN THICKE
    JAY-Z VERSE WAS BORING.

    BUT YET….. IT STILL SHOT TO #1 ON HERE HUH? LMFAO!!!!

  • east in the west

    lets be honest peoples..rick ross would have killed the song but i do agree with the dude that says a remix with mystical that be slammin

  • old niggas leave funny comments

    As funny as it sounds. Mystikal would be dope on this

  • Sachi

    Danja needs to be on this album if Justin wants to succeed! We saw what Nate did on the Future/Sex/L/S album..Loose was also dope. Dudes drums and melodies are incredible.

  • Purplemurda

    Solid… I guess

  • PRezzi

    beginning chorus was to predictable… other than that it sounds like some Robin Thicke

  • damone

    Damn a lot of jay hate as usually. What yall thought some drake and Wayne stripper punchy rap on a smooth track?

  • priime dawg

    great song

  • the brain trust

    LOL you niggas baffle me. There is no song, released by any prominent artist that you’ve ever liked upon 1st listen. Like, you don’t like anything. I’m convinced. lol

    Anyway, I love this. Timbo comes through with his best beat in years, the concept is dope, the song is well written & has a dope musical arrangement. JT also makes use of great melodies and sounds very comfortable on the track. Jay was the only thing sub par on this.

  • These 90’s Babies

    Justin sounds like Robin Thicke?!? People clearly don’t realize thicke is a product of JT not the other way around. Dope track. Nice verse from Hov (not to overbearing). Im not mad at all

    • B.Dot

      Crazy that people are saying Justin sounds like Robin Thicke lol.

  • JE5US * PIECE

    Trash on to the next One

  • WTT2

    No!

  • https://twitter.com/P0is0nedKoolA @p0is0nedkoola

    If you heard Robin Thicke’s “Something Else” album , which is amazing, or the lead single “Magic”, you can hear how much Justin took from Robin

    Jay Z verse was terrible! When will this “R&B song featuring a verse from a rapper” trend already? It’s always a lazy effort from the rapper. Now & then it’s ok but overall boring

    I’m tired of listening to this lame white boy from the Disney channel pretend he has soul. He’s just David Cassidy with a better haircut

    @p0is0nedkoola
    Lester Bangs of hip hop
    There’s no soul on the Disney Channel

  • kayandgee

    not bad i like it, production and vocals great

  • sealey

    They should have had Jay spit on the uptempo portion of the track. I feel that Timbo wasted a JT-JayZ moment in music history. Who co-signed this???

  • Elitesmoove

    Nice to see Timbo back….JT has a banger…regardless…his audience is not the people on this site guarantee!! Jay is Jay…what can I say,,,his wack verses are better than majority of the hip hop that is out today…so much thanks to the Youth who allowed all this dumbed down rap! #Jaystaywinning!

  • mac DIESEL

    @ B.Dot

    Yeah, i didn’t like Hov’s verse.

    ^

    …….HAD SOME COURAGE JUICE THIS MORNIN’ BRIAN??? HA!!!!

    ………ANY, TRACK IS OKAY!!!! JAY SOUNDS UNINSPIRED ON THIS!!!! HE WASN’T NEEDED ON THIS TRACK!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Tbones

    All the hype and JT delivers a dud just like Destiny’s child. Timbo held his own on the boards, JT was aight; nothing spectacular, Jay Z was hot basura; uninspired, dry and wack verse but then again he once said he dumbd down his lyrics and flow for his audience to double his dollars and his audience still rode with him. SMH

  • CM JUNK

    I could definitely hear Mystikal on this!!!

  • steez

    crazy how this shit was released on itunes this morning, and its already #1

    hov’s verse was very subpar. but not to the point where i say he’s falling off, but he just gets real lazy sometimes.

  • wayne

    GARBAGE

  • More

    Weak, i mean trash.

  • Imhiphop

    ..yall some Trolls man, yall just come here looking to rip apart and hate on everything. Stop it 5!! The song is a nice groove, yall think Hov and JT was gonna be on some Reasonable Doubt gangsta ish or something.

    yall the ones lame

  • Hov

    Another #1 hit on ITunes while y’all wannabe rappers can’t even go #1 on Reverbnation or get more than a 100 people to download your wacktape off datpiff. I make music for fans not other rappers.

  • http://dssence.net D.Scott

    The production is ill

  • davirus212

    Jay-z verse fit the song. Like he was gonna be on some blueprint shit. What do y’all expect all the time?

  • mac DIESEL

    …….LMFAO!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • @mac DIESEL

    You are an idiot. You are everything wrong with hip-hop right now fucking idiot. Who gives a fuck if its no.1 on Itunes… we want good music and thats that… it doesnt matter if its free on datpiff.

  • unoho

    At least he didn’t sell out like usher did when he jumped on that whole techno-pop shit…. Respect to the white guy for bringing grown man r’nb back..

  • @mac DIESEL

    I am directing it to Hov… not you mac DIESEL….

  • Yoooo!

    So dope! Grown and sexy would be the term for this! Its just good music!

  • HOVA

    Timbo is back. Great song. LMAO to all you Jay Rock, DMX, Meek Mill, Lil Jon fans saying this was weak. LMFAO!

  • DOUBLE M GENIUS

    RYAN LESLIE BODIED THIS TRACK! SHOULD HAVE PUT HIM ON THE TRACK BEFORE WE GOT A WACK JAY Z FEATURE. THE BLOGS ARE BUZZIN, SHOULD’VE PUT R LES OR ROZY ON THERE!! #MMGWINNING

  • luxuryrap

    thought he sounded like robin thicke on here too…but then i realized robin came out after JT…but then i saw a pic of JT where he had the same hair as robin thicke. oh well…i like the track! but i agree, jay’s verse wasn’t that great.

  • jobie

    JT is smooth. had his hand in the song as a whole. helped with production and the vocals and writing obviously. I enjoyed it all. Cool song

  • Steve

    T.I. woulda killed this.

  • Black Shady

    average…

  • chillsthrill

    cool tune,,,a couple of people said already ,,,but um yeah,,,mystical would have fit better on this,,,,somebody tell jay to bow out gracefully,,,tell this nigga he won already,,,,,go home change some diapers,,then he will be on some other shit,,,lolol,,,hahaaa!!!

  • GreenBeitz

    nothing short of a masterpiece

  • tucq

    u cant hate on this, niggaz…..dont try 2 be hard ALL day, damn….. the singin fits the beat, the verse jay spits is coo……. this is a real nice, laid back cut

  • http://ahealthymedium.com watsonvii

    Silky smooth is the best way to describe this jam.

    Blogged at: http://wp.me/p1XLgJ-BP (Listen/DL)

  • e@rl th@ pe@rl

    JT’s bringing [Grown] & Sexy Back.

    But, you can definitely hear Robin Thicke’s influence all over this song.

  • the One

    Weak ass track! I’m sure jigga thought the same that’s why he probably took JT money and said here’s a wack verse for a wackass track. Fuk you bitch now pay me!

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

    meh was an ok verse, j.t was mroe in his element on this track imo- jay z could ahve droped something spectacular on a song like this since suits and ties are kinda his thing instead its just something generic which is ok, jt needsa hook up with t.i again remix some of this shit

  • Izuul

    This song is gonna blow up, everytime i hear it i keep tryna picture if eric benet and justin collaborated how good it will sound. both artists are gonna have a blow up year. This sunday im gonna see eric benet at bb kings in nyc if in the area or online that night show or click the love stream and try to grasp what i mean. feedback appreciated

  • http://jdareal.com sway-z

    Niggas is clowns, like Hov ain’t just murder his Ross/GOOD music features a few months ago, all of a sudden he’s “falling off” cause you ain’t like this one? GTFOH, he was still talking that talk, he just tried to fit his flow around the beat, and it didn’t work like it usually does.

    Aside from that though, this shit is kinda serious

  • dan

    sounds a little pharrel-ish but dope nonetheless..

    p.s. hov is a billionaire now. he aint tryna impress yall niqqaz..

  • dll32

    It really sounds like a Pharrel production!

  • NOVA

    “Another #1 hit on ITunes while y’all wannabe rappers can’t even go #1 on Reverbnation or get more than a 100 people to download your wacktape off datpiff. I make music for fans not other rappers.”

    LOL @ Hov comment…………………….ain’t that the truth.

  • RapReal

    This shit is knocking. The change ups were dope. Jays verse fit the song fine.

    Are you listening to the music and how dope the production and singing is… or did you fucking dweebs skip to Jays verse waiting for D’evils.

    You hip hop hipster nerd blog niggas are THE WORST!

  • mitch

    this is definitely Justin Timberlakes lane here, S/o to Jay also, his verse wasnt amazing but still got the job done, females stilll gonna eat this up, thats all that matters

  • Nas

    Shout to Timbo on the beat

  • Nas

    Andre 3000 would have turned this song all the way up. Remix???

  • M.T

    this beat was good. Timbaland didnt do a bad job on this one. Jay’s verse was ok. I’m feeling this.

  • The Goatherder

    CAN WE JUST KEEP IT REAL FOR ONCE! WILL IT KILL US??? Jay-Z’s verse was HORRIBLE. STRAIGHT HORRIBLE! Period. I mean, cmon what was that trash???

  • padrino

    You niggas kill me, everybody’s a music critic. The same fags talking about Watch the Throne was wack!!!!!!!!!! The hate for Jay Z is unreal

  • http://dylanrozario.wordpress.com illadeuce

    …Ima do exactly what the fuck first dude didnt want and shit on yall with the smoothness Hov dropped.

    “Green card for the Cuban Linx”

    “AllSaints for my angel”

    “You just got good genes so a nigga tryna cuff you”

    yall need them super obvious lines every 2 lines that do nothing for a story like Waynes got huh?

  • Megabkny

    Love It……..Need A Video Next

  • http://raprader.com king dame

    the song is hot n smooth at the same damn time n jays verse was hot it fit the song and timbo on the track classic shit

  • Shav21

    Real smooth…

  • Heat

    Jay Z is was weak and uninspired.. you could think he was going to be on- point and comfortable since the tie is his new lane. He is just too old thats the truth. Im sorry if my comment offend anyone.

  • Original Ty

    Timbo’s beat is nice I beat it’s crazy as an instrumental where you can hear all the nuances. Nice warm up for JT, and how can people say HE sounds like Robin Thicke?? As much as I like his music did not JT come waaaaaay before him with the soulful falsetto on a white boy routine?? People forget.

    Jay used to give you content, delivery and clever wording on EVERY feature. Now you are lucky if you get one of the three.

  • Nathanial Hörnblowér

    Can’t front, listened again… it’s cool. Just ready for a new Hov album and that Jay Elect. Let’s see what it looks like when the light hit all sides of The Roc.

  • Ryuk

    This.

  • Hov

    Ya’ll niggas got me really confused out there
    I make “Big Pimpin” or “Give It 2 Me”, one of those…
    Ya’ll hail me as the greatest writer of the 21st Century
    I make some thought-provoking shit
    Ya’ll question whether he falling off
    I’ma really confuse ya’ll on this one
    Follow….

  • ncp

    DOPE!! I guess people expected Jay to be on some 22 2s type stuff lol… this is dope as hell

  • Hov

    The truth is ya’ll ain’t understanding the business side of things and it’s sad we cant just appreciate a good song. That’s me being political correct. Now here’s some ignorant shit. I got money, enough to never need to worry about struggling to pay a bill. Some of ya’ll may not even have enough mulla to bury ya mom’s. Sorry. :)

  • NYKIdd

    @hov can you stfu stan shit was trash! Son

  • Say It Ain’t So

    I was right. It definitely grows on you, It’s my jam now.

  • Hear me out nah

    “THE REAL SHIT U GET WHEN DOWN MY LINES”

  • G

  • Dvision1

    Sound is tough….Ppl need to learn how to accept Hov for the current moment and not by his past. yes Hov spit hard before, but for this song, it fits….current Hov

  • BLACK EBERT

    Being commenter #100

    Lemme hit yall with the FUN FACTS:

    – JT: It’s great that he’s back and his album is in anticipation mode. And that idea is more exciting than this sub-par single, sounds like an album filler.

    – Timbo: It’s great that he’s back too! And that he will be producing JT’s full album. The world cannot wait to hear the new reinvented Timothy, that every producer will try to copy as always.

    – Jay-Z: It’s great to know that Jay-Z is featured…YET…Sounds like the newborn been keepin his ass up too late. Jay is TIRED ya’ll. He don’t sound like he wanted to be on this world premiere.

    I am still an anticipating fan/critic but I give this single…

    0 BLACK THUMBS UP.
