Madonna to guest on new Timbaland album

Jay-Z, Rihanna, Beyonce also on 'Shock Value 2'

A string of superstars have been enlisted to collaborate with super-producer Timbaland on his forthcoming album ‘Shock Value 2’.

Madonna, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna and T-Pain will all collaborate with Timba on the release, which he likens to a ‘Now [That’s What I Call Music!]’ compilation

According to MTV.com, Timbaland said “That’s my goal for this– not [to showcase] me as an artist. Of course I’ll do my little part, introduce some people. It gives me room to go tour across the world. People request me. I put on a show. I put on a musical show.”

Timbaland worked with Madonna on her current ‘Hard Candy’ album and according to Pitchfork, the sought-after producer is set to produce Chris Cornell’s new solo album, and is lined-up to work on Jay-Z’s new record.
