Jay-Z and super producer Timbaland are joining forces for Jay's upcoming album, and Timbaland says the album will shock his hard-core hip-hop fans.
He says, "We want to go to the world. Some of the songs are gonna sound like (world music artist) M.I.A.
"You're gonna be like, 'Whoa!' But it's Jay on them. That means it reaches everywhere. "I'm gonna have songs with bagpipes too. The music is gonna be so worldwide, he'll be able to tour the rest of his life, maybe, off just this one album."
Bagpipes? Sounds like a stretch for Jay-Z, but if anyone can pull it off its Timbaland!
