Justin Timberlake Confirms Jay-Z And Nas Collaboration
JT says the pair will feature on his new track ‘Sinatra In The Sands’...
The revelations came after an interview with Hip Hop radio station Hot 97, in which he confirmed the three had been working on the track, Sinatra In The Sands.
Justin himself however did say he still hasn’t heard the finished track and has so far only heard his verse on the song, which is produced by Timbaland.
Talking to the station hosts he said: “I didn’t know that Jay was going to be on it, I haven’t heard it done, I’ve only heard what Tim and I did.”
The Suit And Tie star didn’t want to go into too much detail about the track as Timbaland is known for reworking post-production - but said the pair always trust each other’s judgment.
“We trust each other a hundred thousand percent, he never questions me about lyrics or melodies,” he added. “We really blur lines between what we actually do in the studio.”
As well as confirming collaborations for the follow up including Drake, the singer revealed he had toyed with the idea of releasing The 20/20 Experience in four parts.
Speaking to MTV he said: "I went through a bunch of different ideas on how to release it, one being four EPs of five songs.”
Instead the singer opted for two 10-track albums. JT has previously said both himself and Timbaland allowed themselves just 20 days to complete the second album.
“We had 25 to 30 songs in 20 days. So we were just sprinting and sprinting and sprinting and then trying to figure out a way to put it out," he said.
"I had to figure out how to do a song, like a tracklist for two halves, versus just one big experience. Honestly, I just kind of thought of it like fashion."
The album is due for release September 30, with its first single Take Back The Night out now.
