Last month, Tim revealed that the launch would take place sometime in January.
"Timbo the King, announces, 'Timbaland Thursday,' starting in January," Tim announced in a video. "I was gonna start in December, but I'm going to kick it off in January. Just do something fresh for the new year, I think I'll be a new man for the new year. So let me do something. I think my music is for the new year, something fresh. I'm always different. Something for the new year. I'm bringing you music every Thursday until I decide to stop. And I probably won't stop. Like [Diddy] say, 'Don't stop, take that, take that. Take that record.'"

A couple months ago, G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks announced he would drop new tracks on Fridays until Hunger For More 2 dropped in November.
"I'm not gonna stop putting out mixtape material, I don't know if I'm gonna put it out in the form of a mixtape," Banks explained in an interview. "But every Friday, I've been releasing a new record. Every Friday for 'Blue Fridays.' So I figure we do that for the next eight, nine weeks and by the time the album comes out, [the fans] will have a mixtape if they put it all together."

In August, Kanye West unveiled his "G.O.O.D. Music" weekly project.
"I know yall need the music so I'm dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc...," he tweeted in August.
"I'm calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now." (Kanye West's Twitter)
