Timbaland Enlists Beyonce, Rihanna & Co For ‘Shock Value 2’

Published: Thursday 24th Jul 2008 by Sam
Timbaland Enlists Beyonce, Rihanna & Co For 'Shock Value 2' Hit-maker Timbaland recently sat down with MTV to speak about the follow up to his 2007 LP ‘Shock Value’, which is aptly titled ‘Shock Value 2’. Beyonce, Rihanna and Jay-Z are just some of the big names the super-producer has lined up to appear on the album:

“Shock Value is really like the Now [That’s What I Call Music!] compilation,” he 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.

“Right now, I have a song with Madonna that I didn’t put on her album. I saved [it] in case I wanna do one for me,” he revealed. “Of course I’mma do one with Beyoncé. Of course I’mma do one with Jordin Sparks, Rihanna. It’s a lot of people. I’mma do one with Jonas Brothers. I’mma try to have 10 major ones.”

On the hip-hop side, Timbo said he’s looking at T.I., already has T-Pain and expects Jay-Z. “Jay was really on the last one, but he wanted to change [the song],” he said. “I said, ‘Look, man, I gotta put out an album. You’re killing me.’ “

This, most definitely, is already shaping up to be better than its predecessor.

Randomness, I know, but wouldn’t it be something if Timbo had Beyonce and Rihanna on the same track ala ‘Scream’ with Keri Hilson and Nicole Scherzinger? Cheesy I know, but that really would be ‘shocking’.

Your thoughts?

    No sam. IMO that would just give haters another reason to argue and circulate and cause more drama. I h8 timbaland personally and feel his production sounds recycled. intresting to see what he does for Beyonce’s album still.

    I’ll pass. Keri Hilson and Beyonce can vocally make the album. I’d rather see Madonna dance than sing, and Rihanna? Well, she can just walk/model throughout the video!

    Cant wait.
    Speaking of “Scream” – why wasn’t it a huge hit?? I don’t even think it was sent to radio. The song could’ve been massive.

    i hope Kiley Dean makes it on the album, her & tim go back, "Simple Girl" would have been a huge, if only Interscope Records promote the gurl right.

    For some reason I feel like he don’t want to work with Ciara! Simply because he probably feel she’s trying to be like Aaliyah!Ciara said,”she want to work with him but she’s scared because of the comparisons!If you notice Tim never talks about Ciara!

    I think Timbo is going to do something hotter for this Shock Value 2. With some of these collabos i think this album somewhat reminds me of Missy Elliott “Da Real World” album. That album was a BEAST. The collaboration she had on their was crazy. Redman, Method Man, Eminem, Juvenile, BG, Beyonce, Lil Mo, Nicole Ray, Lady Saw, Lil Kim, Big Boi, Aaliyah and Da Brat. All-stars collabo. Nothing can’t top that album. Timbo need to do something similar or better
