As a trend-setting producer, Timbaland has worked with some of the most influential artists on the planet – this year alone, he's made beats for Jay Z, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke. And it looks like he'll soon add the King of Pop to his production resume.

In a new video interview with Revolt TV, Timbaland teased an upcoming project that blends his music with vocal performances from the late Michael Jackson. The project, which the producer describes as "two kings working together," was apparently initiated by Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid.

Though details remain unclear, Timbaland did mention a track named "Chicago." Earlier this year, Timbaland spoke about against a 2012 track from Chris Brown and Drake that featured vocals from the late R&B star Aaliyah.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
