Desiigner's "Timmy Turner" may be one of the most ingeniously marketed rap singles in recent memory, first revealed as his oddly haunting XXL freestyle, then teased as a video of him and Kanye's right-hand man Mike Dean playing a snippet of the full song. Slowly, people got excited for this weird almost-nonsense, and fan remixes and art began to surface. The hype has been real for a while and now "Timmy Turner" has been granted to us by our fairy godparents at G.O.O.D. Music.

As you'd expect, it's a dark, trundling club banger, and Desiigner's hook is still a clever piece of melodicism. However, it's a meandering, sludgy listen even if Mike Dean's typically dark and layered production does sound really impressive. A late-stage key change is surprising and kind of pretty, even if it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Then again, nothing about this release has made sense so you might as well enjoy this song because you'll probably be hearing it a lot soon. Listen to "Timmy Turner" below.
