Petey Pablo Talks Creating 'Raise Up'

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
No need to be from the Carolinas to shout the hook from Petey Pablo's "Raise Up" at the top of your lungs: the N.C. MC's 2001 debut single not only peaked at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, but became an enduring hype anthem for those ready to take their shirts off and celebrate, regardless of location. The slapping Timbaland production -- which incorporates the sounds of the UNC Tar Heels' marching band -- provided the ideal sound bed for Pablo's gritty chant,

"This one's for North Carolina! Come on and raise up/ Take your shirt off, twist it 'round your hand/ Spin it like a helicopter!" With "Raise Up" making Billboard's Best Choruses of the 21st Century list, Raleigh's resident Mr. Freek-A-Leek hopped on the phone to discuss repping N.C. and how a (real) helicopter actually inspired the "Raise Up" hook.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Brad Paisley and his team rented out the top floor of the renown Broadway bar, invited John Fogerty, Bill Anderson and Timbaland to join Paisley on stage and spent more than 90 minutes covering Fogerty’s classics, Paisley’s most loved hits and songs from his new album “Love & War.” “The way we got this groove in the studio is that Tim’s girlfriend and a bunch of other people started beating on a bunch of stuff and made this bluegrass beat and here we are. You thought we were crazy, didn’t you?” Paisley asked Timbaland as people cheered. “No,” he said. “I thought it was great.”

Brad Paisley Releases Timbaland Collaboration ‘Grey Goose Chase’ & ‘Solar Power Girl’

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Brad Paisley just released his eleventh studio album titled Love & War with two collaboration with Timbaland on the bluegrass rave-up "Grey Goose Chase" and the countrified "Solar Power Girl. "He didn't want to come in and turn me into something like what he does; he wanted to see how what he does can be a natural fit, he said early on, 'I think where we collide the best is bluegrass.' He had a couple of guys who were going in and beating on the banjo while Kendal [Marcy] played it and they'd make a loop out of that and it sounds like a jug band." Paisley talks about how the Timbaland tracks came about.

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com "Timbaland and his crew made ample use of the well-stocked bar that Paisley built in his studio while recording Moonshine in the Trunk. "[They] drank me out of my bar, It cost more for that session in alcohol than it did in any sort of [studio] time. It was nuts. We had a bonfire and smoked cigars and made s'mores. One of the guys caught his first fish while he was here. We did have a good time." Make sure to cop the album now on iTunes and check out the tunes below.

More than a decade before Kiiara’s and Selena Gomez’s chopped-up vocals were dominating radio, Elliott had us all wondering what a fremme neppa venette was. The rapper’s tongue-twisting 2002 hit didn’t come easy. “We cut the song at least five times before it was right,” Timbaland recalls. “She had different lyrics, different [flows], but I just didn’t care for it.” Only on the last attempt did Elliott have the idea to take the lyrics “I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it” and, well, reverse them. “That’s something that she did creatively,” says the producer. “When she came back and played it for me [backward], I was like, ‘That’s the one.'”

Just Blaze just teased a potential beat battle between Pharrell and Timbaland. After having the beat battle against Swizz Beatz, Just Blaze just revealed getting off the phone with Timbaland considering a Beat Battle against no other than Pharrell, but is this really happening, I mean Pharrell is way to humble to compete for the beat battle, he would adress the whole time Timbaland as the King.

Both of them are considered as the best producer of all time and that itself would bring a huge hype all over the place a great marketing to release the new N*E*R*D/Timbaland singles, nonetheless, Scott Vener replied to the Just Blaze tweet saying that he would take bets that it’ll never happen, what do you think guys!

Justin Timberlake In The Studio With Timbaland & Danjahandz (2017)

It looks like we’re getting a Justified 2.0 after all. It’s been nearly four years since Justin Timberlake shut down the Pop/R&B game and went back-to-back with The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. And while he’s worked on a handful of projects since—namely the Trolls soundtrack, which featured his chart-topping single “Can’t Stop The Feeling“—we’ve yet to hear what the 36-year-old star has in store for his proper follow-up. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
We’ll still have to wait on the music, but a recent Instagram post from Timberlake suggests he’s hard at work on the project. Even more promising, the IG post featured Pharrell and Timbaland, two legendary producers who have played a major role in the sound and success of JT’s solo career. What’s more, Danja, who works closely with Timbaland, said he and Timbo along with The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) were working on a project together. Stay tuned for more info.

Timbaland Has Two Tracks On Brad Paisley’s New Album ‘Love & War’

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and Timbaland are among the guests on Brad Paisley’s new 16-track album Love & War, set for release on April 21. Country Music Hall Of Fame members Bill Anderson and the late Johnny Cash are also represented on the project. Timbaland is featured on two tracks — “Grey Goose Chase” and “Solar Power Girl.”

Brad Paisley also revealed that his new Album was inspired by Timbaland smacking a Banjo. “His instinct was that making hip-hop would be wrong in every way for me. So where do we gel best? He said, ‘Country and hip-hop come together in bluegrass,’ since it’s all about the rhythm. So in the studio, Timbaland’s beating on a banjo with a pair of brushes, and it sounds like a jug band. That’s what led to ‘Grey Goose Chase.’”

Timbaland x Idolator.com Interview, Talks Next Generation Of Artists & New Album

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com Timbaland spoke with Idolator.com about his role on the show (it’s his way of giving back) and new music and new projects. Tim will release his first project in eight years when the follow-up to Shock Value II drops later this year and the super producer is promising to change to face of music again. He’s tightlipped about the project, but says it will be full of new faces and, potentially, one UK superstar. After that, he’s rolling out the long-touted Opera Noir, which he describes as a franchise album. Find out more in our Q&A below.

What attracted you to The Pop Game?
It’s something I always wanted to do. This is my way of just giving back to music. I love it. It’s not about ratings, it’s about the love of music. I really love my kids. I want to get other producers to do the same thing, to help out with generations to come. You know, that’s what we’re here for. I want to see those kids flourish and make great moves because they’re always going to remember the help that I gave them, you know?

Timbaland x Yahoo Music Interview, Talks ‘Opera Noir’ & More

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Timbaland sat down with Yahoo to talk about his new show The Pop Game and his upcoming album. He is an ideal choice to host The Pop Game, Lifetime’s new music competition series, which is essentially a bootcamp for five aspiring teen artists and their parents. Even though odds are slim that The Pop Game Season 1 will yield music’s next American Idol-style sensation, the superproducer is enjoying the artist-development aspect of the process. “All the people I’ve worked with, they were special,” he tells Yahoo Music.

“But I never got a chance to work with them in the beginning. I’m having fun building and finding out what’s special [with these artists]. That’s something I’ve never experienced, really.” Timbaland can also relate to the contestants. He remembers when he and fellow A-list hitmaker Pharrell Williams were just a couple of high school kids in Virginia Beach, trying to get recognition for their pre-fame group Surrounded by Idiots. “Being from Virginia, we had to go hard to figure out stuff,” he explains.

THEY. Talk Timbaland

The LA duo already have Timbaland on side, but with their new album, they're hoping to join the likes of Frank Ocean as R&B free-thinkers. "Recently in LA, you had a movement where a lot of like minded people just came together and grew. There are so many creative minds out there and the next 3-5 years in music will be so interesting and I'm excited to be part of it."

The two are not taking their rise for granted. They share a story about veteran producer Timbaland, who gave them advice while they worked together. “he came back and I pressed play for him, he was like 'This is tight man, you made uncle proud!' That was the biggest moment for me because I idolised him and now I have his approval."
