This is one piece of news that is sure to get music fans all over the world excited. Producer Jim Beanz who has produced for large array of artists and is a close associate of Timbaland has revealed to Digital Spy that Justin Timberlake is back in the studio with Timbaland recording new music.
“When I get back to the States I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project. It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up! He has some crazy, crazy stuff.”
Jim also commented on whether JT will be feeling the pressure of topping his last blockbuster FutureSex/LoveSounds.
“There are certain artists who live in the moment and the reason why FutureSex/LoveSounds was so amazing is because he didn’t try to top Justified. There are certain artists who can get inside with great charisma and energy and make great music every time. So it’s not really about topping the last record, it’s more about topping music that comes on the radio. Everything is so similar that it’s about topping that and doing something different, and that’s what they are going for. He’s going to kill it.”
UPDATE: Rep tells Billboard that he is not working on a new album and is currently in Puerto Rico, filming a movie. So disappointing.
