Aged just 19, the femcee is the latest name signed to Tim’s Mosley Music Group in partnership with L.A. Reid‘s Epic Records. What’s more, the lyricist has received co-signs from the likes of Jay Z and Rick Ross.

Armed with more than just words, the music maestro previewed material from the newbie’s debut album, which he says houses some of his best work since Aaliyah’s ‘One In A Million’.

thatgrapejuice alexandra shipp Weigh In:  Timbaland Slams #AaliyahMovie, Producers Weigh In On Twitter Backlash

 

Twitter was almost too hot to touch last night as the highly anticipated Lifetime original film ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ made its premiere – much to the chagrin of fans.

Setting the net ablaze, detractors lent many-a-meme ridiculing the film for its casting, acting, and even musical performances.  The ‘Rock the Boat’ beauty’s fans took special notice to the criticism of her longtime collaborator/friend Timbaland.

Known for being behind the wheel of some of the singer’s most memorable hits, last night saw him behind the wheel of consistent slamming of the network for bringing to light a film many say “should never have been made.”

Did you watch it?  Do you agree?  See it all and weigh in below:

If its leading singles ‘I Can’t Describe’ ft. T.I. and ‘Walk It Out’ ft. Timbaland are anything to judge by, Jennifer Hudson‘s long-awaited third album ‘JHUD’ is well on its way to much deserved critical acclaim.

With hopes of ensuring commercial success to match, Hudson continues to roll out a promo campaign that will see her hit up many-a-major outlet and function in support of the project – including the 2014 Fashion Rocks.  But, before she rocks the stage with the likes of Usher, Nicki Minaj, and more, she continues to tease her September 23rd due release by revealing its full official track list.

A ten track, star-studded affair featuring the likes of fellow Chicagoan R. Kelly, T.I., and his Grand Hustle protegee Iggy Azalea, the album also features production from Timbaland and more.  See it in its entirety below:

Timbaland Previews New Michael Jackson Song

As the age old adage goes, greatness doesn’t die – it lives on and inspires.

Hence, it’s little surprise that the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, continues to do just that five years after his sudden passing.

With the assistance of MJ’s longtime label Epic Records and its present-day leader LA Reid, hitmaker Timbaland is currently hard at work on a project that will see previously unheard Jackson jams re-imagined for a modern audience.
