Meet Jo’zzy: Timbaland’s latest secret weapon. Paying dues in the music industry over the past couple of years, this under-the-radar songwriter has worked with artists like Missy Elliot, Beyoncé and Teyana Taylor, before she gained the official stamp last summer from the futurist beatmaking guru. Now, the Memphis-bred newcomer lands the veteran cosign on her latest single “Tryna Wife” featuring Timbaland and Harlem’s own, Mason Betha. Produced by Timbaland’s protege, Wizz Dumb, the self-proclaimed “singer disguised as a rapper” uses her signature mid-temp ’90s throwback vocals to craft an anthem suitable for all the independent women.
With Timb’s adlibs, Wizz Dumb’s knocking production, and Ma$e’s bouncy cameo, the summertime track puts Jo’zzy right in the middle of hip-hop and retro R&B territory.
