Justin Timberlake – “Cry Me A River (eSenTRIK & Scooter VIP Remix)”

What do you do when Justin Timberlake’s comeback includes the release of two lukewarm singles? Remix one of our favorite songs from him from a decade ago, of course. Benzi premiered this on his “Diplo & Friends” mix that aired on Radio 1, and we’ve been wondering when it was coming out since.

This remix of the hit “Cry Me A River” is a simplistic flip, with the second drop using those Timbaland vocals as a masterfully chopped instruments. This isn’t overdone or hyper. It’s a perfect example of how to expertly rework a popular song into a danceable tune without watering it down or overdoing it.
