Justin Timberlake has released a music video for his next single, “TKO.” The video feels more like a short film and fans get a full seven minutes of Timberlake. This music video has combined Timberlake’s passion for film, acting and music in one.
The video for “TKO” was directed by Ryan Reichenfeld and was co-written by Timberlake and Reichenfeld. The music video does feel like a film production with the quality of the end product, which will not disappoint fans.
This music video has captured the feelings behind the song and the sex appeal that comes through in Timberlake’s vocal performance. The video shows a relationship that is slowly falling apart but the passion is still strong. The video cuts between a scene with Timberlake and a beautiful woman (Riley Keough) in an apartment to Timberlake being dragged behind a car. The video also features a surprise ending.
Timberlake has managed to take his sound to a new level without losing his early influences. “TKO” is sexy, fresh and a great track off of the 20/20 Experience. Timberlake has advanced his music videos from the days of *NSYNC to now, clearly using what he has learned during his time in the film industry.
It is safe to say that fans can enjoy Timberlake on the big screen and YouTube, all the same.
