Justin Timberlake was reportedly called in to work on Jamie Foxx’s latest album to “ensure there were more hits”.
The release date for Foxx’s new material was set for this month, but it has been pushed back until July because bosses at J Records/RCA wanted to rework some of the original tracks. This is the star’s fourth album and Timberlake was reportedly asked to get more involved in the project, leading to him collaborating on several songs. Foxx is believed to have welcomed Timberlake’s input and the pair have spent hours in the studio together.
“There were some issues with Jamie’s album. Bosses at the label were not happy with the initial tracks, so Justin was asked to help co-write and perform on more songs,” a source told the New York Post. “Timberlake has collaborated on at least three tracks – including the first release, titled Winner, which is now getting a good reaction on radio play. Jamie was a little upset the label chiefs were insisting on changing his material to ensure there were more hits.
“The album has been delayed twice. It was due for release in April, then pushed back to June and then delayed again.”
Rapper T.I. has since been called into the studio to record a verse for Foxx’s debut track Winner.
Music bosses insist Foxx is happy Timberlake was closely involved with the production of the album and have promised fans they will love the new offering.
“Jamie started working on this album last November, and Justin was involved from the start. Jamie and Justin have completed three tracks. The album has been delayed to July 20, but everyone is happy with the material,” a representative for J Records said.
Speaking of the Costume Institute benefit, speculation about designers and the celebrities they will bring to the party is heating up. Ralph Lauren and his wife, Ricky, will hostTaylor Swift, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, while Kenneth Cole is bringing Emmy Rossum, Stanley Tucci and Matthew Morrison from “Glee.” Other designers have still to finalize their plans. Michael Kors will be bringing Brooke Shields, Diane Lane, Carolyn Murphy, Natasha Poly and Chanel Iman.

Last night, Justin and Ciara were at the Hollywood’s W Hotel celebrating Timbalands birthday. The pictures are just so freaking cool, it looks like they were having a hell of an awesome time. By the way, how tiny does Justin looks sandwiched between all those big guys ? haha.
Oh..and time to get that hat off JT!
The only thing on the rocks between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel on Wednesday night was a bottle of bubbly — the reportedly strained couple looked perfectly happy celebrating rapper-producer Timbaland’s birthday in Los Angeles.
In the private lounge of nightspot Drai’s Hollywood, Timberlake’s Tequila 901 and Black Star Beer hosted the bash, which also toasted the birthday of Timbaland’s wife, Monique Idlett.
Timberlake and Biel sat close in the lounge, touching and laughing until guests including Ciara, Paris Hilton and Jaime Foxx started to arrive. The pair worked their way around the room, eventually coming together for more close conversation.
The couple slipped out together after about two hours, but not before Timberlake made friends with the lounge’s DJ and selected a few tracks for partygoers.
R&B siblings Brandy Norwood and Ray J made an appearance after Timbaland moved the party upstairs to the main club, which overlooks Hollywood Boulevard.
Sometime after midnight, Lindsay Lohan entered the space with seven or so guests in tow, holding court at a table across from Ciara’s.

New song just leaked. New album on the way ? Nope, don’t get your hopes up, this is most definitely a demo from the Nsync days. His voice sounds so young here, brings back memories and the song is cool so check it out.
Here is another slightly different version of the behind the scenes of Audi’s “The next big Thing” starring Justin Timberlake. The ad will be divided in 6 mini movies with the first one premiering on May 4.
I really like that the concept of the video shows the process of them making the song and then Justin watching Esmee’s career take off. It’s a very symbolic video of the musical relationship they both share. Liking also the whole urban feel attached to it. Overall, the video is great, what do you guys think ?
