Timbaland & Keri Hilson Pen Apology To Jay-Z And Beyonce On “Sorry”
Timbaland recently revealed that he and Jay-Z had a brief falling out prior to Magna Carta Holy Grail, but now the producer has plans to turn his words into a song. The producer, who worked closely with Hov on MCHG, temporarily cut ties with the rapper over “petty stuff” after 2009’s The Blueprint 3. He explained, “It was not industry-related, it was more personal and I was wrong.”
In a new interview with Revolt TV, Timbaland announces that he has penned an apology track titled “Sorry” that will be featured on his upcoming album. In his verse (which he compares to something 2pac would’ve recorded) he raps, “We cop the same Range, we talk to the same dames, same thangs, same lane. Now we see each other, don’t even speak. That’s fucked up. I missed your 40th and that hurt me so deep. Accept my apology, my apology, ni**a please.”
R&B singer Keri Hilson will also be on the track, where she will be apologizing to Beyonce. Hilson has been continuously receiving intense backlash from the ever-loyal Beyhive, after she released the remix to her single “Turning Me On” in 2009. In the remix, she sings “Your vision cloudy if you think that you the best/ You can dance, she can sing, but need to move it to the left. She need to go have some babies/She needs to sit down, she’s fading” — which many people decoded as a diss to King Bey. The controversy has been going on for four long years, and it’s definitely time to end the drama.
