Timbaland Taps Drake, Miley Cyrus For Shock Value II
Â Timbaland is gearing up to release Shock Value II, the highly anticipated sequel to his chart-topping album Shock Value.
Timbaland hopes to recreate the success of the first installment of Shock Value, which produced three #1 pop singles: “The Way I Are” featuring Keri Hilson and D.O.E., “Give It To Me” featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake and a remix to OneRepublic‘s “Apologize.”
For Shock Value II, Timbaland has tapped Drake, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, The Fray, Brandy, Chad Kroger, Keri Hilson and others.
"I'm so fortunate and blessed to be able to create a Shock Value II," Timbaland said in a statement. "I'm really proud of the caliber of artists on this album and all the work they put into making it a success. I can promise that no one has ever heard Katy Perry, The Fray, or Brandy sound like this before.”
The first single from the album is titled “Morning After Dark” and features Nelly Furtado and Timbaland’s new artist, a French singer by the name of SoShy.
According to Timbaland, who has produced 10 international #1 single throughout his career, the new album features his newest, most innovative production to date.
“It's exciting because not only am I giving fans the best of me on each track, I'm giving them a glimpse of their favorite artist in a completely different light,” Timbaland continued. “This is an album that can be listened to from start to finish every single time because each song is so unique and the range of artists so diverse. I can't wait for my fans to hear the collaborations."
Timbaland’s Shock Value II is due in stores November 23 on Mosley Music Group/Blackground Records/Interscope Records.
