Timberlake premiered the "TKO" single last month as the second release from his "The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2" album. On the aggressive R&B track, he sings about being blindsided by a broken heart. "TKO, I'm out for the count / Yeah girl, you knocked me out," Justin sings as a defeated man.
The music video for "TKO" puts that relationship battle front and center. Timberlake and Keough cuddle together, argue and even hook up (which is the NSFW part of the clip). The tension between the two can be cut with a knife. Justin is later literally knocked out and dragged through the dirt. His wayward lover wins the war and makes sure to seal the deal with a very twisted ending. Aside from "Mirrors," the "TKO" video just might be most memorable clip from "The 20/20" album era thus far.
"The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2" was released on September 30 and hit no. 1 on Billboard's albums chart. It became his second record to do so this year following the original "The 20/20 Experience."
