In a video posted by Revolt TV last night, super-producer Timbaland revealed plans for a project that would find him working with the vocals of the late Michel Jackson. Though details on the project are limited at the moment, it will presumably combine Timbaland’s production prowess with unused vocal tracks left behind by Jackson. In the video Timbaland describes the project as “two kings working together.”
In the clip, Timbaland hints that a song called “Chicago” could be our first taste of the project. Timbaland also explains that the mysterious project is the brainchild of Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid. As Vulture points out, Timbaland was recently critical of artists like Drake and Chris Brown for working with Aaliyah vocals.
Oddly enough, as the Huffington Post points out, the interview clip was posted by Revolt TV was removed last night, along with some tweets promoting the interview. The version of the video you see above is from the Guardian’s article on the subject and is not hosted by the official Revolt TV YouTube page.
