Don't care if you offended/ I know you heard my name/ I'm just waiting for you to diss it, says Tink on "Around the Clock." These are fighting words delivered by a peaceful, patient voice. Tink is 19 and unflappable, and "Around the Clock" is an anthem for anyone who's been sure of their own talents before other people caught on.
Timbaland, who has signed Tink to his Epic imprint Mosley Music Group, hopes 2015 will be the year her fire spreads. His plinking "Around the Clock" peeks around corners and creeps through shadows, which is pretty much what these two are doing in this video, directed by DGainz. "Tim dropped the beat in the studio and it instantly gave me a hip-hop vibe," Tink explained in an email. "I wanted the video to match that same feeling. Raw and simple." Looking forward to anyone trying to touch her next year.
