Justin Timberlake Working On Third Studio Album?
Producer Jim spills the Beanz, but JT's people play down his claims...
Justin Timberlakeis back in the studio and working on a third album, it has been reported.
And the singer-turned-movie star is claimed by Timbaland on his new material.
Producer Jim Beanz said he would be joining JT and Timbaland in the studio later in the year.
He said: "When I get back to the States I'm going to be helping out on Shock Value III with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project.
"It's still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I've been over here in the UK they've been working, so by the time I get back they'll have a whole load of ideas and I'm going to have to catch up!
"He has some crazy, crazy stuff."
And Beanz insisted that Justin wouldn't feel the pressure of trying to top his acclaimed FutureSex/LoveSounds album, from 2006.
He continued: "There are certain artists who live in the moment and the reason why FutureSex/LoveSounds was so amazing is because he didn't try to top Justified.
"There are certain artists who can get inside with great charisma and energy and make great music every time. So it's not really about topping the last record, it's more about topping music that comes on the radio.
"Everything is so similar that it's about topping that and doing something different, and that's what they are going for. He's going to kill it."
A representative for Timberlake denied that he was working on a new album though, insisting that he was only helping Timbaland out on the rapper's Shock Value III project.
Jessica Biel recently confirmed that she and JT are definitely engaged.
