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.
