Timbaland Teases New Michael Jackson Project: Watch His Mysterious Announcement

Timbaland unveiled a new Michael Jackson project in a cryptic YouTube video this afternoon (August 27). The 39 second video appears to be a heavily edited preview of a longer interview but it’s possible to glean some interesting information. For starters, the super-producer not-so-humbly describes the endeavor as “two kings working together”.

He also reveals that the first single will be a song called “Chicago”. It’s unclear if he’s referring to a completely new track or an old demo but it’s exciting to know that new music from MJ is on the horizon. In the clip, Timbaland says “we spoke on the phone” — perhaps a reference to a planned collab while Michael was still alive? Watch up top.

Are you excited for this project or should Michael’s unreleased music remain in a vault to protect his legacy? Let us know in the comments below.
