With a little help from his old friend Timbaland, Justin Timberlake’s new song, ‘TKO’ is a beat heavy tale of a girl who fights dirty.

On the over 7-minute track from Part 2 of The 20/20 Experience (out September 30), Timberlake addresses this woman who is stepping out on him by simply telling her, “I’m out for the count/ Yeah girl, you knock me out.”

Timberlake doesn’t shy away from the boxing metaphors like “you’ve been swinging after the bell,” “hit the mat,” and “below the belt” to describe this girls dirty deeds.

The song also includes a beatboxing breakdown and a hook from Timbaland in which he spits, “She killed me with that coo-coochie-coochie-coo.” Because why not? You’ve got seven minutes to fill.

In an interview with 97.1 AMP Radio in Los Angeles (a Radio.com station), JT said the second 20/20 Experience would be a bit different from his last installment.

“It’s the fall version of The 20/20 Experience,” he said. “It’s a little darker. It’s got a little more experience. It’s less virginal, if you know what I mean!”

Back in July, Timberlake released the first single, “Take Back The Night” off the follow-up to The 20/20 Experience. That sexy song was met with a bit of controversy after the Take Back The Night foundation, which looks to create safe communities and respectful relationships, questioned the message of the song.
