Timbaland Working On Michael Jackson Project, "Chicago" Single
Timbaland preparing to release an album featuring the music of Michael Jackson, promises it will be "something big."
With his recent work on projects from both Jay Z and crooner Justin Timberlake, Virginia producer Timbaland plans on continuing his music streak with a new Michael Jackson project. The beatsmith shared the news during a short, video snippet with Revolt TV.
Timbaland revealed that he spoke to record executive L.A. Reid in regards to the project and promised “something big.” The Virginia Beach artist also gave fans a heads up on the title of the project's first single.
“To even go bigger would be two kings working together. L.A. Reid came to me, like to my house. I got something big I want to do. I can tell you the first single’s gonna be the song ‘Chicago,’ but I’m gonna set it up right. So, now it’s my time, watch me go,” said Tim.
On top of his recent work with Justin Timberlake on both The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience 2 Of 2, Timbaland has worked with a number of artists in the R&B realm. In fact, his skills as a producer were put on the map thanks to his work with the late Aaliyah and Ginuwine.
In the time since Timbaland debuted his production talents on Ginuwine’s Ginuwine...The Bachelor in 1996, he’s gone on to work with Jay Z, Nelly Furtado, Ludacris, and countless other artists.
A release date for Timbaland’s Michael Jackson project, as well as a title for the album is currently unknown.
