Timbaland laced his single with a Grade-A pop beat, so it makes perfect sense he recruited Drake for it. Drizzy's stuttering hook is the ear-worm you don't mind humming all day. Drake ping-pongs his way through his 16 bars: "Californication" reference? Check. (Drake once showed off a David Duchovny-signed copy of "Californication" Season 1.) Calling himself "The ever-so-talented Mr. Ripley"? Check. Even a toast to moving out of his "mama's basement"? Naturally.
