Justin Timberlake is making an album, but even he doesn’t know what to call it. Even though Timberlake has his footing firmly in the pop world, he’s been toying with other genres–like R&B and country–since he debuted his solo album Justified in 2002. And his newest project sounds as though it will continue that funky and fun experimentation. Appearing on the British morning show BBC Breakfast today (Oct. 17) to promote the movie Trolls, talk naturally turned to the next JT album.
“I would not say that I’m making a country album,” Timberlake said, addressing rumors that began after he was spotted in the studio with Little Big Town. “But I also don’t like to say that I’m making an R&B album.” He added, “I did work with Little Big Town but that was because they were working with Pharrell. I have been in the studio with Pharrell, I have been in the studio with Max Martin, I have been in the studio with Timbaland.”
Martin has written some of *NSYNC’S biggest hits over the years, and he most recently collaborated with Timberlake on the summer single “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” Meanwhile, Timberlake seems to be blending “Justin then” and “Justin now.” He collaborated with Pharrell and The Neptunes for a good chunk of what appeared on Justified, but ended up working with Timbaland on his next three albums. Bringing all of these pieces together for his next album promises listeners a veritable feast, even if no one knows what to label it just yet.
Sometime between voiceover sessions on Trolls, Justin has put together a concert documentary with the pedigree to perk up the ears of his fellow dads: Justin Timberlake & The Tennessee Kids (2016), a collaboration with Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme. Factor in the biggest hits of Timberlake's career, a hyperactive laser light show, and some very un-dad-like dance moves, and Demme and Timberlake make beautiful music together, check out the documentary below.

Puerto Rican producer Wisin from the reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel has been in the studio with Timbaland for his new project. Wisin & Yandel started their career in 1998 and have been together since, winning several awards during that time, including a Grammy in 2009, being the first and the only reggaeton artists who won it.
Timbaland, who helmed the songwriting team for Empire since its inception, has exited. Joining Fox’s hit television series for its third season are four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Rodney Jerkins as supervising music producer and chart-topping songwriter Ester Dean. “We were happy to work with Timbaland during the first two seasons,” says Shawn Holiday, senior VP of A&R for Columbia Records, which releases Empire’s music.
“But we wanted to take a different approach for season 3. We dealt a lot with family drama in the first season through songs like ‘Good Enough’ when Lucious Lyon threw his son Jamal in the trash can. That was a very emotional music moment. So we’re going for the same success with upcoming songs like ‘Mama,’ about Cookie being the backbone of the family, and a duet with Mariah Carey and Jussie Smollett.” Of bringing Jerkins and Dean onboard, Holiday adds, “Rodney is a dynamic, multi-format producer experienced in urban, rhythmic and pop. And Dean excels at writing big songs with catchy hooks.”
Danjahandz wrote on his Instagram Page remembering working with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake on Futuresex/Lovesound album.
“Then we shocked the world and shifted the music business. Let open the flood gates for edm to be accepted in the mainstream music world. We changed the game for a good for at least 8-9 years. I can go on and on about this project. I may do a book one day I have to save some for the book but the sessions were one thing all the events after is something else. Anyway as far as the creation process it was flawless... It flowed.. We were experimenting and everything worked. This was the moment where the teacher thru a challenge out to me and I came through with the checkmate.
It happened... I developed something that was mines.. Tim just did a track that was crazy to me and everyone in the room!! one of those ones that leave you stuck for days he looked over at me and said " ur turn" How do you come back from that?? So let's take a step back.. A year prior I bought some sounds with my own money from Brian Kidd he gave me a lil package I was hyped. Before that I went to club space with Lago and seen the future. I've never seen a rave for lack of a better word. And the music was so ill to me. What was even more crazy was how the people were in the trance just zoned out. I made a note right then and said I need to people to react like this to my music.
Photos by Shaun Michael, three years ago, Timbaland recounted a dream in which Aaliyah’s ghost told him that Tink was “the one.” Shortly after hearing Tink spit fire over Jeremih’s soulful croon on “Don’t Tell Nobody,” the the legendary producer and tastemaker flew the young artist (née Trinity Home, her moniker is her childhood nickname) to Atlanta to get them in the studio together. “The connection was instant,” Tink tells me. The two have been collaborating since; their major project being Tink’s forthcoming debut album. “I’m always working on the album,” she says. “It’s going to be very special.”
Be-Street.com speaks to Tink just after she drops the fourth installment of the her mixtape series on August 25. Winter’s Diary 4 features star-studded production by Jahlil Beats (of Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Nigga”), Spanish mash-up duo Cookin Soul, C-Sick (of the drill hit “Val Venis” by King L), and of course her beloved mentor Timbaland. “I’m really happy with it,” Tink says, expanding that finalizing the mixtape was a long haul because she’s a perfectionist. “Some people make a song in four hours and say its done.” But Tink is the opposite. She’ll go through five rough drafts until she’s satisfied. “I take my precious time until everything is right.” And her work ethic shows.
Singer-songwriter Alex Marshall released his debut solo single “Hurricane” earlier this summer and is putting the finishing touches on his debut solo album. Marshall got the solo career break he was looking for after doing some songwriting and production for an artist named Katelyn Jae for Wright Entertainment. A month and a half after performing a duet with Jae for a demo, he got a phone call he’s unlikely to ever forget.
“I get a phone call from this European number. I’m like, ‘Hello, who is this?’ and they’re like, ‘Hey, this is so and so from [Justin Timberlake’s] camp, Wright Entertainment, could you be in Amsterdam in two days?’” Marshall told uInterview in an exclusive interview. “I’m thinking it’s one of my friends messing with me or something and they were like ‘No, we need you to — can you be in Amsterdam in two days?’ Needless to say, two days later I’m landing in Amsterdam.”
The rapper learned how to make music in a Solihull youth club – now, after a false start, she’s working with Timbaland and is the toast of US hip-hop. ‘Basically,’ she says, ‘I’m on the up’ Lady Leshurr has just come back from the US. She has been spending a lot of time there this year, she says: “We’ve been to Atlanta, LA, New Orleans, Miami, New York.” She played a sold-out gig in the latter, the audience’s enthusiasm apparently undimmed by the fact that she raps with a distinct Brummie twang:
“I didn’t think they’d be able to understand me, didn’t think my accent, of all accents, would have crossed over like that. But they were singing my lyrics back at me. It was hilarious, hearing people with American accents saying ‘bredrin’ and ‘wasteman’, all that British urban slang.” But mostly, she’s been working on her debut album. “Working with a producer called Deputy, who made Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money; Bangladesh, he made Lil’ Wayne’s A Milli, and Diva and Video Phone for Beyoncé.
