Nelly feat Justin Timberlake : Work It

Nelly feat Justin Timberlake : Work It

Elastoplast’s greatest benefactor returns with more from party-rap’s first concept album ‘Nellyville’. Here the Utopian visions of palm trees swaying to the rhythms of a thousand neon ‘Gentlemens’ clubs are neglected in favour of a duet with Justin Timberlake. "You talkin’ to me like you’re talkin to your analyst" hollers Nelly amidst slippery beats and ice-coated synths, presumably passing through on his way to the Victoria’s Secret private after-party. Justin, still determined to be mistaken for [a][/a] at all times, croons along gamely. It’s a hard knock life.
