The 32-year-old singer collaborates with Timbaland to craft the beat-heavy tune, a blend of pop and R&B.
The song lyrics focus on a woman from a previous relationship that Justin just can’t get out of his mind. “It’s just a TKO/I’m out for the count/girl you knock me out,” he sings. His feelings go into overdrive when he sees her out with another guy.
“You knocked me out, what am I supposed to do?” he asks.
The song is the second from the new album, a follow-up itself from the 20/20 Experience album released in March. He previously released
“Take Back the Night” from the new set, which will hit the streets Sept. 30.
At seven minutes, “TKO” is twice the length of a normal pop song, but it flows so easily it’s over before you know it. Give it a listen below and follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest music updates.
