Nas Taps Jay Z and Justin Timberlake for Timbaland-Produced ‘Sinatra in the Sands’

Timbaland provided some great beats for Jay Z on ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ and now it looks like he’ll do the same for Nas.

In an interview with Revolt TV, Timbo revealed that he produced a collaborative track between Nas, Jay and Justin Timberlake.

“Nas got a song right now with him, Jay, and Justin, and it’s completely stupid,” said Timbo. “It’s called ‘Sinatra in the Sands’ and Justin sounds like Frank Sinatra.”

The super producer added that he will also contribute more music to Nas’ next album.

“I told Jay this, the person that gets me from hip-hop now, their album is really gonna be phenomenal, and that’s Nas,” he said.

Timbaland also discussed some of the recent songs that featured the angelic voice of the late songbird Aaliyah. In particular, Drake and Chris Brown‘s tribute songs, ‘Enough Said‘ and ‘Don’t Think They Know,’ respectively.

The studio maverick believed their songs never worked because they don’t have the spiritual touch needed to make them meaningful.

“People always say they are going to do a song with Aaliyah,” he states. “It ain’t gonna work ’cause Aaliyah’s music only works with its soulmate, which is me.”

However, he did praise Drake for dropping several hot tracks in recent months including ‘Started From the Bottom.’

“He’s gonna be around for a long time. I talked to big brother Jay and I was like we have to embrace this young solider,” he said. “He’s really, like, trying to add to the bloodline. We adopted [DJ] Khaled, that’s my dude, and we adopted Drake.”
