Rating: 4.5/5

Nelly Furtado ends the phone call and talks to the twentysomething man. He says he’s an excellent lover. She says he may have some competition. He tells her he wants to find out. She guzzles her drink and grabs his hand. They kiss by her car. She says she’s been wanting him for awhile. He tells her she finally has her chance.

Timbaland leaves a voicemail for Furtado. A twentysomething woman gestures for him to come over. He sits on the couch and kisses her. As they continue to make out, he thinks of Furtado. They’d been talking for months now. He just wants her to come over.

Furtado tells him not a chance. She’s busy with the twentysomething man. Timbaland’s eyes bulge out and she tells him not to look so surprised. He shrugs, saying she’s not the type to go out with the same guy twice. They had a fun thing going. Furtado says for not to give up. Timbaland says he won’t. He’ll wait for her. She says it won’t be too much longer.
