Drake Says Justin Timberlake Collaboration Is in the Works
This year Drake pretty much owned the hip-hop charts, and now with a forthcoming R&B mixtape, Canada's favorite emcee is looking to add a little pop influence to his music, announcing a collaboration with Justin Timberlake.
In an interview with Fuse TV's Voodoo 2010, Drizzy revealed that he and Timberlake will get in the lab to cook up some music. "One thing that I haven't mentioned to anybody yet, but will, right now," he began, "I've always wanted to work with him and it's in the works right now, me and Justin Timberlake will probably have a song soon. I'm really excited about that, 'cause I've wanted to work with Justin for a long time. And we've recently talked about it and I think we're going to make it happen."
There's no word yet on the exact kind of music that Drake and Timberlake will be making, but the former *NSYNC frontman has worked with more than a few hip-hop artist. His top selling 2006 release 'Future Sex Love Songs' was co-produced by beat maker Timbaland, and featured appearances from T.I., Snoop Dogg and Three 6 Mafia. Timberlake also covered Drake's single 'Over,' during a performance at his annual charity concert in Las Vegas last month.
For now Drake has put the brakes on his R&B mixtape, 'It's Never Enough,' but has been keeping himself busy touring around the country. He will head across the pond to begin the European leg of the tour, with J. Cole, in early 2011.
