Timbaland posted a video on YouTube recently of him rapping along to a new song featuring Tink and André 3000. The song is titled "UFO" and Timbaland looks excited as he raps and takes video of himself. The rapper/producer has been helping out singer Tink and, from the sound of things, it is paying off.
André 3000 is easily the winner on this track. Anytime he is featured on another artist's song, he shines.
But Timbaland's reaction to everything is priceless. You can tell he had fun with this one. Check it out below, via MTV News.
Over the summer, Timbaland spoke to Rolling Stone about his upcoming solo album Opera Noir.
"I have no features on it. It's called Opera Noir and it's the most innovative work I've ever done," he said. "It's all about truth and what's going on around us. It's about my personal truth: It's one of the things that MediaTakeOut will care about, but I'm telling you what happened. I'm telling you: At this point, this happened. I'm telling you at this date, I'm telling you that I did this.
"It's about the truth and what the world is facing, and we don't even realize."
Tim likened Opera Noir to Purple Rain in that it will be the rapper/producer's grand finale as far as solo work. No release date has been set.
André 3000 recently said he felt like a sell-out on the OutKast reunion tour. He even called the Coachella performance "horrible."
"Honestly, just, you know — I didn't want to do the tour," 3000 told The Fader about his reunion with Big Boi. "I felt weird about going out on stage and doing it again ... I felt like people would be like, 'Y'all are doing all these festivals, y'all are just doing it for money.' And I felt like a sell-out, honestly. So I was like, if I'm in on the joke, I'll feel cool about it."
