For those of you hearing this for the first time, Timbaland has been working on new music featuring Michael Jackson. Media sources are reporting that an album with all new material will be released. Jackson’s record label, Epic, has kept a steady flow of released music since the Pop King’s death. Timbaland’s album is said to be “my music with his voice on it”.
According to The Guardian, the first single “Chicago” is set to be released shortly. Timbaland discusses the process and what the new album will be all about in a brief interview. It’s ironic that he’s moving forward with the reanimation of Jackson because he’s been awfully critical of artists who have previously attempted to do so. Timbaland was one of many to voice his displeasure with Chris Brown and Drake for featuring his late protege Aaliyah.
As mentioned above, there has been a steady flow of music, including ‘This Is it’, from Michael Jackson after his death. The release of Timbaland’s album would be the biggest project since the legendary Jackson died. I think I speak for everyone, Jackson fans or not, that we are awfully curious to see the final product.
