Esmee Denters ft. Justin Timberlake: 'Love Dealer'

By
Esmee Denters feat. Justin Timberlake 'Love Dealer'
Released on Monday, Jul 12 2010

If you're lucky enough to have a pop superstar as your musical mentor, you may as well make good use of him, right? Fresh from the success of her Chipmunk hook-up, pancake-flipper-turned-popstrel Esmée Denters has teamed up with Justin Timberlake - her very own Will Schuester tutorly type - to keep up the forward momentum.

However, this is no wholesome Glee-style teacher-student sing-off - quite the opposite, with Timberlake attempting to score a hit of lurve from Denters. Over spare 'n' funky R&B beats, he begs: "What's it gonna take to get a score?", to which his protégé replies: "If you need a fix, I'm a dealer." Denters' vocals aren't blessed with oodles of personality, but the racy subject matter certainly helps to make amends, and while JT's "Yeah"s and "C'mon"s are almost enough to put Matt Morrison out of a job, after a few listens 'Love Dealer' does succeed in making you want to get down 'n' dirty. (On the dancefloor, of course.)
