'Mirrors' singer teaming up with the rapper on his new 'Stay Trippy' LP
Justin Timberlake has recorded “a couple” of tracks for Juicy J‘s new album.
The ‘Mirrors’ singer has teamed up with the Three 6 Mafia man for the rapper’s new LP, titled ‘Stay Trippy’, which is due out in July. Juicy J let slip the collaboration during an interview with MTV News.
“I’ve got this record [with Timberlake], but it’s not all the way finished yet,” he said. “We did a couple of records [together], but he’s still gotta do the vocals, so hopefully, while they’re doing the mixing, it’ll make the album.”
Hinting that Timbaland was involved with producing the tracks, he added: “Right now, we’re wrapping it up and hopefully it’ll definitely make the album because it’s a great song. Justin is super talented; he can play any type of instrument and he even engineers on the mixing board. When I saw that, I was like, ‘Wow, that guy really knows music.’ Instead of just coming in and laying a verse then leaving, he was involved in everything. He’s a producer and songwriter – he’s incredible.”
Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake recently announced that he has new album coming out in the autumn. The record, the follow-up to ‘The 20/20 Experience’ will reportedly include 10 new songs and outtakes and is due for release on September 30.
The singer will also be joining Jay-Z on his Legends Of The Summer stadium tour, including a headline appearance at this year’s Yahoo! Wireless Festival in London. The event takes place between July 12-14 at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. ‘The 20/20 Experience’ hit Number One in the Official UK Album Chart and spent three weeks at the top of the US charts.
