Finally, Trent finds a look that fits him.
Seriously: this is a classic Timbaland riddim; only he could do this. Combined with Trent, you can't go wrong. Toss in Fergie and Sheryl Crow, and you've got NATURAL FUNK.
Love or hate the music, I'll argue with you for hours (if we've got beer), that the physical album cover of Radiohead's In Rainbows sucks.
