Love Dealer is Esmée Denters' third single from her debut album Outta Here. The song was written by Denters, Justin Timberlake and Stargate in 2009. Stargate produced the song, together with Justin Timberlake who also provided additional vocals.[1] On March 22, 2010, a radio station confirmed that "Love Dealer" would be the next single of Esmée Denters.[2] It is her first official single in the US. The song was released in an attempt to help her break the US market with the help of Justin Timberlake. Due to a lack of airplay in the United Kingdom the single failed to reach the UK Top 40. It has also failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

Critical reception[edit]

BBC Music was positive: "Love Dealer is introduced by Timberlake in provocative fashion, but his breathily suggestive vocals dominate the mix when contrasted with Denters’ lead lines, and ultimately comprise the most memorable aspect of the experience. That’s not intended to imply the girl lacks ability, but swap her contributions with those of any number of similarly stylised singers and the overall effect is the same."[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by The Malloys, was filmed in Los Angeles on March 18, 2010.[4] Both Denters and Timberlake appeared in the video.[5] Several official previews of the video, which premiered April 28, 2010, were featured at Denters' official website.[6]
