Timbaland producing posthumous single 'Chicago' for Michael Jackson?
Producer has hinted that he is working on a project which combines his music with Jackson's voice
The Guardian reports that Timbaland, who has worked on new albums from Justin Timberlake and Jay Z already in 2013, has hinted that he is working on a project which combines his music with Jackson's voice and that a single titled 'Chicago' is imminent. The producer claims that record label boss LA Reid is also working on the project and described the pairing of himself with Jackson as "two kings working together".
The producer's work with the deceased Jackson's vocals comes just months after he criticised both Drake and Chris Brown for doing something similar with vocals by Aaliyah. Speaking at the time, the producer said: "It ain't gonna work because Aaliyah music only works with her soulmate, which is me."
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Michael Jackson's estate owes $702million in federal taxes and penalties, according to the IRS. The US tax-collecting agency claims that Jackson's administrators undervalued some of the star's assets by hundreds of millions of dollars. The estate previously challenged an IRS claim on the King of Pop's fortune in July.
