Hitmaker Timbaland has kept his word on officially launching "Timbo Thursday" today by releasing the first track off his weekly release series, "Take Ur Clothes Off."
Timbo's new record also features his longtime friend/rapper Missy Elliott.
Timbaland debuts his new weekly series Timbaland Thursdays with none other than his frequent collaborator Missy Elliott. The best buddies are up to their zany tricks on the club-friendly "Take Ur Clothes Off," powered by Timbo's leftfield synthesizers and snapping instrumentation. Missy holds it down on the lyrical tip, dropping smirk-worthy rhymes to lighten up the track. "Been hot before Michael Jackson wore loafers/ Been rich before you even knew about Oprah," she quips. Reunited and it feels so good. (Rap-Up)
The producer posted links to his TimboThursdays.com website via Twitter.
"so are yall ready #timbalandthursdays? say "yeaaaaaa timbo drop dat joint"," Tim tweeted Thursday (January 13).

Last month, Tim revealed that the launch would take place sometime in January.
"Timbo the King, announces, 'Timbaland Thursday,' starting in January," Tim announced in a video. "I was gonna start in December, but I'm going to kick it off in January. Just do something fresh for the new year, I think I'll be a new man for the new year. So let me do something. I think my music is for the new year, something fresh. I'm always different. Something for the new year. I'm bringing you music every Thursday until I decide to stop. And I probably won't stop. Like [Diddy] say, 'Don't stop, take that, take that. Take that record.'" (Perception Media Group)
Timbo is just the latest of artists, including Lloyd Banks and Swizz Beatz, who became inspired by Kanye West's "G.O.O.D. Friday' weekly music releases.
"I know yall need the music so I'm dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc...," West tweeted in August.
"I'm calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now." (Kanye West's Twitter)
