In Rapture

It's no exaggeration when I say that Timbaland is EVERYWHERE. Nearly every song on the radio has either been produced by him or his cohort Danja. Hell, I even heard he's working on some new Katie Melua joints...OK, so that may not be true, but you get the point. I was surprised to learn that he recently worked with The Rapture on a song entitled 'No Sex For Ben'. One can only assume they're referring to TVs Ben Shepherd who's been going through a pretty lean patch recently, sex wise. The track appears on a new computer game that all the kids (and the sweaty IT guys at work) can't stop playing, Grand Theft Auto IV:

I like it a lot. It's jerky, percussive, it's got low end bass, no real chorus, squeaky vocals and even has the trademark cameo from Timbaland at the beginning. Fingers crossed the big man is working on their new album.
