Timbaland Changes Album Title Yet Again
Timbaland’s supposedly had an album in the works for at least two years. But, with official singles released as far back as 2011, where is it? While not a lot has been revealed, one issue still being worked out is the album title.
Following 2009’s Shock Value II, the release has been going by Shock Value III for quite some time. But then, the producer changed it to Rebirth. Now, an announcement made at a recent Belgium concert indicates he’s changed it again – to Textbook Timbo.
Which out of these three do you like best?
Along with making this revelation, the rapper known for songs like “The Way I Are” performed a cut, a track called “4 Horsemen,” which features Drake and Jay Z.
While Timbaland has been active as a producer, reportedly working with everyone from Cher to Justin Timberlake and even doing Beyonce’s “Grown Woman” from earlier this year, his own singles have been more sporadic. Once you cut out everything he collaborated on over the past two years, you’re left with 2011’s “Pass at Me,” a Pitbull-featuring track that reportedly is the first official Shock Value III single; “Break Ya Back,” featuring Dev, that came out in mid-2012; and “Hands in the Air,” with Ne-Yo, for the Step Up Revolution soundtrack.
Recent years have seen the rapper change labels, as well. After leaving Blackground Records in 2010, he signed onto Jay Z’s Roc Nation in January 2013.
