Justin Timberlake Calls Tink A ‘Beast of an Artist’



Tink has gotten a major from co-sign from yet another high-profile musician. Pop superstar Justin Timberlake had nothing but good things to say about the Chi Town songstress via social media.

“My brother from another mother @Timbaland has got a BEAST of an artist coming. Her name is Tink. You have been warned,” the caption of his IG post read.



Tink also made news when she received an endorsement from music legend Swizz Beatz. The famed “Showtime” producer spoke highly of the budding artist in an IG post.

“When you see this or hear this name @official__tink know that’s it’s on!!!!! Congrats to my bro @timbaland he got 1 with this project #nogames,” the caption on his post read.



An unreleased song recorded by Tink recently received a nod of approval from Swizzy. Swizz and Timbaland were filmed inside a studio vibing to the record.

“You know ya got one when @therealswizz says ‘Showtime’ #Heavy @timbaland we comin,’” the caption on Tink’s IG post read.





Tink’s boss and mentor Timbaland regarded her debut LP as one of the best projects he’s produced since Aaliyah’s sophomore album “One In A Million” during an interview with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.”



Aaliyah’s breakout project sold 10 million copies worldwide and boasts six Billboard Hot 100 singles, including, “If Your Girl Only Knew,” “One in a Million,” “Got to Give It Up,” “4 Page Letter,” “Hot Like Fire” and “The One I Gave My Heart To.”



Tim previewed Tink’s hot single “Movin Bass” featuring Jay Z and Rick Ross to make believers out of listeners on The Breakfast Club.



The super-producer praised Tink’s artistry on the Breakfast Club, saying “God” led him to the 19-year-old songstress.

Tim said he discovered Tink’s music through Da Internz during a visit to L.A.

“God worked everything out. It was so miraculously. It was like at the time He knew what I needed.”

Tim said he almost retired from the music biz prior to meeting Tink.

“She was music and she saved my life,” he said.

“In today’s music she will be the only one who resonates sales,” he added.



Tink showcased her talents in latest Timbaland-produced single “Tell The Children.” Her thought-provoking track follows the controversial grand jury decision that opted not to indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson on charges of murdering Mike Brown.

Tink poetically raps, “They profile us/Then they wonder why they grow up being prejudice and so violent/It trickles down from the rich to the poor/They a f-ck with you because they can’t believe that it’s yours/Registration? Give these f-cking streets motivation/They wanna take us out so they start making allegations/I’m fed up/Police coming so we sped up/My nana told me ‘f-ck 12, keep your head up.”

The 19-year-old Chi Town songstress was not done there.

“King died for us n-ggas living in poverty/50 years later, we still don’t have equality?” she raps.
