The producer says that collaborating with the late King of Pop is the idea of L.A. Reid, the CEO of Epic Records.
Timbaland is working on a new Michael Jackson project. In a recent interview with Revolt TV, the producer shared the details of the project. "To even go bigger would be two kings working together," he said.
He went on explaining that Epic Records CEO, L.A. Reid, approached him with the big idea. "L.A. Reid came to my house. He's like, 'I got something big I wanna do,' " Timbaland continued. It appeared that Reid wanted Timbaland to produce songs that would feature Jackson's vocal.
"Now you're gonna hear my music with [Jackson's] voice on it," Timbaland added.
Timbaland revealed that the first song would be called "Chicago" saying, "I could tell you the first single is gonna be the song 'Chicago', but I'ma set it up right." Further details are still kept under the wraps.
Timbaland, who has been working with everyone including Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, also said that he only spoke once on the phone with Jackson. Fans are currently expecting the project to arrive soon.
