Scarlett Johansson Ponders Album of Original Tunes or Leonard Cohen Covers

December 16, 2008 12:50 PM ET

Scarlett Johansson is reportedly hoping to record a second album. Johansson released her debut LP, a collection of Tom Waits covers titled Anywhere I Lay My Head, last spring to mixed reviews. Next time, however, Johansson will have a go at writing her own songs, possibly inspired by a subject she's normally reluctant to discuss in the media: her marriage to actor/onetime fiancé of Alanis Morissette, Ryan Reynolds. "I don't think I'd do covers, so it'd be a project that I have to dedicate myself to," Johansson told MTV. Johansson does have some experience penning her own tunes, writing Anywhere's "Song For Jo." If another covers album is in the future, Johansson has already expressed an interest in Leonard Cohen, with whom she'd like to collaborate.

“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."
