Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado drop new song 16 years after ‘Give It to Me’

BRB, just grabbing my crimper and uggs for this iconic trio’s comeback.

Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado are back with a new song collaboration.

The new tune comes just a casual 16 years since the release of their hit song, Give It to Me, which came out in 2007.

Nelly Furtado took to Instagram to share the epic news, writing: “It’s here ⬆️?? ‘Keep Going Up’! Now available everywhere @timbaland @justintimberlake.”

Timbaland also posted to his Instagram with an announcement that read: “Let me be your DJ Labor Day Weekend?? ? SONG OUT NOW ? we finally here!”

The song is described as capturing the high of the positive energy a person feels when they finally find happiness after a personal struggle.

“My new life’s much better than the old one,” Furtado sings on the track. “Now I’m laughing, remember I was broken.”

There’s also a reference to Furtado and Timbaland’s previous hit Promiscuous on the new track.

They took the line: “How you doing, young lady? That feeling that you giving really drives me crazy,” from the 2006 track, and open the new song with: “How you been young lady? Does the feeling still drive you crazy?”

Alongside the song release, the trio also put out a music video on Friday which showcases footage of Timbaland, Timberlake and Furtado in the recording studio.

So if you’re in the mood for a bit of nostalgia on this rainy Friday afternoon, here’s the new song:
