I first read this story with a lot of skepticism but recently MTV UK picked it up so it has to be true....right? Ha!
Well Word Is Team Leona Lewis and her team dined with Timbaland and his team at the Delano Hotel in Miami last week. After a lengthy dinner meeting and obvious knowledge and respect for each other's work, the two decided to work together on Lewis' sophomore album due out sometime next October. No word as to who else will be part of the collaboration (possibly Ryan Tedder? Jim Beanz?) but we'll definitely keep you posted.
And it seems as though Lewis will be teaming up with Justin Timberlake to record a cover of the Whitney Houston's global smash "I Will Always Love You." You all knew that it was written by country star Dolly Parton right? Of course you did. My question is why? Everyone knows the track, Houston's version is phenomenal, it sold a bazillion records so what's the point of doing a cover version? I know I know to make even more money and sell even more records. Let's hope their version is as good as the original.
Props to Luke H. for the info.
Update:: The news (at least the first part) has been confirmed to be true and to give you that little something extra, The Chronicles can exclusively tell you the session begins in April with Leona, Timbaland, J Roc, and Jim Beanz. Can't wait to hear what they come up with!
