Super producer Timbaland is going to be really busy this year and he probably wouldn't have it any other way. The Virginia-based beat maker has three huge projects he will be devoting his time to in 2013.
To get things started, Timbaland is already working on Justin Timberlake's new album. The disc will be entirely-produced by Timbo, according to HipHopWired. The last time these two musical geniuses combined forces it produced magical results.
Justin's 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds was produced entirely by Timbaland. The project spawned the hits "SexyBack," "LoveStoned," "My Love" and "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around." The album won four Grammys and has been certified four-times platinum.
Timbaland will also lend his talents to Beyonce's upcoming fifth solo album. The singer confirmed the news during an interview with GQ.
"I've been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream," she told GQ. "We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us."
And last but certainly not least, Timbaland will be assisting 50 Cent at SMS Audio, where he is now an investment partner and member of the company’s board of directors.
"He invested and now he has equity ownership. He can help me in the decision making process while utilizing other acoustic engineers to get the highest sound quality possible." 50 said in a recent interview with MSN's Joseph Lee.
"50 Cent has created an aspirational audio brand that produces the highest caliber of headphones on the market,” said Timbaland in a statement. "I’m looking forward to working with 50 and being part of a company so eager to bring studio-quality sound to music fans all over the world.”
