“TKO” is a music video and song recorded by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake for his fourth studio album, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 (2013).
It was written and produced by Timberlake, Timothy “Timbaland” Mosley and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, with additional writing from James Fauntleroy and Barry White.
The music video premiered on Justin Timberlake’s official YouTube VEVO channel in late October 2013. The song was released on September 20, 2013 by RCA Records, as the second single from The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
“In the seven-minute visuals, directed by Ryan Reichenfeld, the pop star takes “kill me with that coo-coochie-coochie-coo” to a whole new level. He tries to make love to his heartless girlfriend, played by Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough, but gets the cold shoulder.
She turns down his advances and after a steamy make-out session in the kitchen, she hits him over the head with a frying pan. He is dragged through the desert on the back of a truck while she sits in the driver’s seat, but only one of them makes it out alive.
The Timbaland-produced song is the second single off Timberlake’s No. 1 album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
His “20/20 Experience World Tour” kicks off November 6 in New York.
