Young Money rapper Drake has revealed that his long-awaited wish to collaborate with Justin Timberlake is beginning to take form.
Although details are still developing, Drake said music fans could expect to hear them together on wax in the future.
“I’ve always wanted to work with him, and it’s in the works right now,” Drake said. “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.” The details are still unknown as to when we can expect to hear the collab, or what direction the song will take, but it’s good to hear JT is working on music again. Could this mean a follow-up to “FutureSex/LoveSounds” is in the works? What do you think? (Billboard)
Last December, West Coast rapper Game revealed he had recorded new music with Timberlake as well.
“Yeah, Justin Timberlake came through last night,” Game revealed in an interview. “It just, the vibe changed. It went to where I could see Grammy awards. I had a really dope energy from him just being in the booth last night. Pharrell didn’t call him, I don’t know how he fell through but he fell through man. Two JT’s in the studio at the same time and the PW, it’s gonna be classic. Justin Timberlake is big sh*t man. Everybody listens to Justin Timberlake — from little white girls from Malibu to chicks in the hood. The songs he comes out with to the features on Timbaland’s album, and working with Pharrell in the past and all the way back to my little sister loving her N Sync CDs.” (Rap-Up)
Game had hinted at working with Timberlake in a Twitter the previous week.
“just gettin home from studio. was n wit Pharrell listenin 2 new beats & out of nowhere “Justin Timberlake” walks in, 2 b continued… R.E.D.,” he wrote Tuesday (December 8). “Had the kraziest session last night n the studio. I made a #1 hit so I’m sendin my ENERGY 2 all the aspiring producers & new artists. R.E.D.” (Game’s Twitter)
