Justin Timberlake New CD/New Movie Info
Justin Timberlake is playing actor again — but his
return to music is just around the corner.
The singer, who recently began shooting "Alpha Dog,"
has talked with at least two producers about recording
later this year.
Timberlake has reached out to Rich Harrison, best
known for Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love," and is also
talking with veteran hitmaker Rodney Jerkins, who is
eager to re-team with him after working with 'NSYNC in
"I actually called Justin a couple weeks ago," Jerkins
said. "I just took his address down and I'm gonna
start [saving] little things here and there to let him
know what we're trying to do, 'cause he's one of those
projects that I wish I could get in from beginning to
the end. He has an amazing talent and ability, but I
don't think it's been brought out of him yet. I mean,
he had a couple great songs, but there's something
deeper that hasn't come out and he doesn't even know
Both Jerkins and Harrison were impressed by
Timberlake's intimate, live band-driven late-night
shows and would be interested in making that sort of
music with him.
"I've got some ideas, but it's not about what I want
to do with him, it's about sitting down with him,
getting into his head and pulling that out," said
Harrison, who produced Destiny's Child's next single
as well as material for Jennifer Lopez's next album.
Timberlake's first album, Justified, was a smash hit
with several successful singles, although he's been
focusing on acting for most of 2004. "Edison," his
first movie, is due next year.
