Dev Collaborates With Timbaland for Possible Album Track ‘Don’t Hurt It’
The song features familiar-sounding synth bloops that might have some listeners thinking they’re listening to ‘Like a G6′ again. It’s not entirely clear what Dev is rapping about, but she oozes swagger as she rhymes, “Let’s find a cliff we can jump off / You afraid of heights? / Let me know, we can take that flight.” She repeats the hook, “You like the way I work it, work it / Push up on it but don’t hurt it.”
The Cataracs produced ‘Don’t Hurt It,’ but they may have collaborated with Timbaland during the writing process, as the song’s military-style snare drum beat sounds like something the rapper would come up with. Timbaland delivers a sexually-charged verse in which he raps, “Timbo in your backyard / Got the girls for you, got the alcohol / And I party, party real hard / Love when they start taking their sh– off.” He teases, “Where you buy your hips at? / I know you didn’t come built like that.”
We’ll find out if ‘Don’t Hurt It’ makes the cut for ‘The Night the Sun Came Up’ when the album drops in March.
