Justin Timberlake Has New Nas, Jay Z, Timbaland Song In The Works

Back in late July, Timbaland leaked the existence of a new song he was working on with Nas, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake entitled “Sinatra In The Sands.” The mere mention of the track was enough to put hip-hop fans abuzz with anticipation at the potential existence of this super collaboration amongst hip-hop’s elite.

In an interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 yesterday, Justin Timberlake took the time to confirm the song’s existence to the delight of music fans, everywhere.

“It’s funny how all this music came about is we were just in the studio at Jungle City, and all of this music came out of that,” explained Timberlake. ”Originally, I think, it was something Tim and I, obviously Tim did the beat and I wrote the hook, where….sort of sang in the style of Frank Sinatra, and I didn’t know Jay was gonna be on it.”

While the unreleased finished product is on the way, Timberlake admits that he has not heard the finalized version of the song at the moment.

“I haven’t heard it done. I’ve only heard what Tim and I did on it. I haven’t heard any verses or anything. It’s a mid. It gives you a feeling of this easy-going…I dunno. I don’t want to say too much about it because I haven’t heard the end of it, and Tim has been known to…go back and, ‘Oh, I flipped the beat.’”

During the interview, Timberlake aslo spoke on his upcoming collaboration with Drake, his “History Of Rap” performances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and his love of growing-up on hip-hop.
