Timbaland Drops Names of ‘Shock Value 2′ Collaborators
Timbaland, following up on 2007’s successful LP ‘Shock Value,’ revealed that ‘Shock Value 2′ is in the works. The Grammy-winning producer wants to keep everyone guessing about who might appear on it, but he’s name-dropped T-Pain, Rihanna, Beyonce, T.I., Madonna and Jay-Z.
“‘Shock Value’ is really like the ‘Now [That’s What I Call Music!]’ compilation,” Timbaland said in a recent interview. “That’s my goal for this — not [to showcase] me as an artist. Of course I’ll do my little part, introduce some people. It gives me room to go tour across the world. People request me. I put on a show.”
The super-producer also plans on teaming up with one of pop’s favorite teen bands. “I’mma do one with Jonas Brothers.”
‘Shock Value 2′ has no release date yet. In the meantime, Timbaland is gearing up for the fall releases of the Missy Elliott and Chris Cornell projects. He’s also been tapped to produce Jay-Z’s forthcoming album.
