In a recent interview with, The-Dream revealed that he’s one of a few notable producers on hand to craft Jay-Z’s forthcoming album.

The Grammy-winning artist disclosed that Hov has been working with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. “We were all in the studio together,” he said. “We were all in the same building working on [Beyonce‘s] album and Jay started working on his.”

Could this be confirmation that Swizz and Tim also knocked a few tracks out for Bey?

That fact remains to be seen but The-Dream did share that the Brooklyn rapper would be returning the favor, offering a few scalding bars to the track ‘High Art’ on Dream’s fifth album, ‘IV Play.’

“Jay-Z’s on there,” he states. “Just got his vocals last night. He f—— killed it.”

‘IV Play’ drops on May 28 and will also feature Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland, Big Sean and Beyonce.

Just last week, Hov released the track ‘Open Letter,’ produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. The hard-hitting cut was perfect for Jay to air his recent grievances over. We’re hoping that banger is just a taste of what fans can expect from the album.
