AceShowbiz - Justin Timberlake has apparently had a new collaboration with Pharrell Williams. The former NSYNC member has secretly recorded vocals for Pharrell and Little Big Town's new song "C'mon' off the group's upcoming album "Wanderlust".
The "Happy" hitmaker broke the exciting news on the red carpet of the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, June 8. "We were in the same studio at the same time," he told ET. "So we had Justin in one room. Little Big Town in another room. Quite naturally, people are going to visit each other and Justin ended up singing on one of the songs."
"He sang background [vocals] on 'C'mon'," Pharrell disclosed Justin's secret contribution to the song.
According to Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, the collaboration was Justin's idea. "It was like the old days when artists used to hang out in the studio and you might hop in and listen to somebody's song," she said. "He came down and listened to what we were doing. He was like, 'Oh my gosh, what if I sang this?' It was very fun and he's a Tennessee boy. Obviously they [Justin and Pharrell] have a deep friendship for many years, so it was really cool."
Justin had actually hinted at this collaboration in March when he posted on Instagram a photo of him hanging out with Little Big Town's members in a studio. "NBD... Just writing with @littlebigtown This band is the truth!! So good!!!!" he wrote in the caption.
This isn't the first time Justin has collaborated with Pharrell. They recorded a song called "Brand New" for Pharrell's latest album "G I R L". The 43-year-old music producer also produced "Senorita" and "Like I Love You" off Justin's first album "Justified". In March, the two teased a possible new collaboration as they were pictured in a studio together.
