Justin Timberlake and Timbaland have been cemented in Pop history.
Now the former is reflecting on working with the legendary producer in a new interview with Apple Music.
His words below:
“That was like a prophecy for me. You have to understand, like when I was 14 and we were just actually forming the group [*NSYNC], Supa Dupa Fly was the thing for me. And I said to my mother, ‘I will work with that man one day. I will work with him one day if it’s the last thing I do,’ And of course, I was 14, and just like… I probably could have said anything at that point and believed it…. We had met a little bit. He really liked ‘It’s Gonna Be Me,’ actually. And we met him outside a studio one time and I was kind of realizing that maybe it wasn’t going to be possible.”
Since the pair first teamed up, they have spawned several hits together, such as ‘SexyBack’ and ‘Mirrors.’ Additionally, Timbaland has appeared on every one of JT’s solo albums in the last two decades.
