B5 & Danja (and possibly Timbaland)

Consisting of 5 brothers ages 13 to 19, B5 hit the music scene back in 2005. Often compared to N*Sync and other boy bands, B5 was looking to create their own sound. Their self titled debut album was a success and soon the guys were all over teen magazines making the young ladies swoon. They went on tour with everyone from Ginuwine to Usher gaining experience and music industry knowledge from the veterans. With a very successful mall tour and joint ventures with Disney's High School Musical, B5 has kept the their audience's hungry for new material intact.

It's now 2007 and B5 has a new album Don't Talk Just Listen looking to give Kanye and 50 Cent some competition on September 11th. Signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Records, their first single "Hydrolics" feat. Bow Wow is climbing up the charts. They have a new look, some much needed edge, and some top notched production for the album including the Souldiggaz, Brian Cox, the Underdogs, will.i.am, Danja, and rumored Timbaland as well.

B5's song "Teardrops" windows media / zshare is confirmed to be produced by Danja. However in an interview, Bryan of B5 also says Timbaland was a part of the track:

****J Dot (UBG): What are your individual favorite songs from the new CD?

Bryan: One of my favorite songs is “Teardrops” produced by Timbaland and Danja. I like it because the beat is just so crazy and I just love everything about the song including the melody.*****

In another interview Timbaland is also mentioned as a contributing producer to their album:

****BET.com:What producers did you work with on this album?

CARNELL: We worked with Bryan Michael Cox, the Underdogs, Will.i.am., Souldiggers, Mario Winans, and Timbaland. We're real excited about it.****

So what role does Timbaland have in the track? I'm not sure yet, possibly additional production but Danja is confirmed as the producer with Corte Ellis as the writer. The track definitely has that "My Love" feel to it along with those classic Danja synths. Big thanks to my investigating partner Bigmac for the info.

  1. the drums and the synths are very much alike my love and even though the sounds are familiar I still freakin love this snippet...can't wait till you post the whole track...if this has no contribution by timbo than it seems that he tought danja really well...maybe tim actually wants to retire...allthough two superproducers are better than one :)

  14. i wish there was a way to kno when these beats r made. i mean like the sessions. this sounds like it was made around the jt album and as sum1 said earlier, miscommunication. i am findin it hard to believe that they made this specifically for B5 LOL. this is way too gud for B5.
