Justin Timberlake revealed in a video yesterday that he’s releasing a new album in 2013! Better yet, a new report claims that his first single will feature Beyonce AND Jay-Z!
Justin Timberlake is releasing his first album in seven years, which he confirmed Jan. 10 with a video posted to his official website. “I’ve only done two albums in 10 years,” Justin says in the video, as he walks into a studio. “What does the next decade mean for me?” Well, it may involve the likes of musical powerhouses Beyonce and Jay-Z.
In early December, Perez Hilton reported that Beyonce and Jay-Z were spotted in the studio together, but a follow-up report suggested that Justin was in the studio with them as well! While some believed that Justin would be featured on Beyonce’s upcoming new album, others are beginning to wonder if Justin’s highly anticipated new single, to be released at midnight on Monday Jan. 14, will feature the high-profile couple. At the time of the initial spotting, Justin’s new album was a big secret!
“I don’t want to put anything out that I feel is something I don’t love,” Justin said in his video. “You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it. … I’m ready.”
On Wednesday, Jan. 9, music producer Carl Paul tweeted, “MADE A MOVIE WIT THE LEGEND TIMBALAND GOT SUM HEAT COMIN SOON BEYONCČ, JAY-Z, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IM WORKIN #HowBoutU.” Soon after, Carl deleted the tweet.
Justin, 31, originally stirred up a fan frenzy Jan. 9 with a cryptic tweet alluding to his big release.
“Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…” he tweeted to his more-than-15 million followers.
So what do YOU think, GISTvillers? Would you like see Beyonce and Jay-Z featured on Justin’s new album? Or did he just collaborate on Beyonce’s new album?
