September 7, 2010 10:46 AM ET

Jane's Addiction and Duff McKagan have parted ways, just five months after the band recruited the former Guns N' Roses bassist to record their new album. "We wanted to thank Duff for helping us write songs for our new record," Jane's Addiction said in a statement. "We love the songs we worked on with him — and the gigs were a blast — but musically we were all headed in different directions. From here Duff is off to work on his own stuff so we wish him all the best." Perry Farrell also posted this on Twitter: "Jane's wishes Duff much luck with his band Loaded. What a fun time we all had working together." Jane's Addiction, who are scheduled to perform October 17th at a Tony Hawk benefit concert in Los Angeles, have not announced a replacement.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
