Timbaland Thursdays: Timbaland feat Lyrica Anderson - Mentally

Yet another top notch cut from @timbaland007 with his signature #TimbalandThursdays release of Mentally with @LYRICAANDERSON. Timbo has stated a few times via Twitter that his upcoming Shock Value 3 is going to feature quite a bit of names you haven't heard of like singer/song writer, Lyrica and a Alt Rock band Rekapse (@rekapse). Wondering if he'll be able to turn lesser known artists/bands with talent into household names is a waste of time, just ask Keri Hilson, Aaliyah, One Republic, Bubba Sparxxx, Petey Pablo...I could go on, but you get it...

I appreciate the change of gears on Mentally, opting for more of a pop sounds, which is a contrast to the past couple Hip Hop/R&B dominated Timbo Thursday tracks. Worry not Timbaland fan, the percussion heavy beat still steals the show with Lyrica's hook a close second. Sure the comparisons to @misskeribaby are eminent, but I like the fact that first and foremost she has made a name for herself as a writer for the likes of Charice and Hannah Montana. Always got love and respect for artists that are thoughtful and creative enough to pen their own verses.

I'd say this is in competition with 808 for top Timbaland Thurs track so far. Whatcha think? Am I off? #YouBeTheJudge...
