Justin Timberlake, Timbaland to appear in new Madonna video

Justin Timberlake and Timbaland are off to London to appear in Madonna’s new video for the song "4 Minutes to Save the World." The two cowrote and coproduced the track, which is the first single off her forthcoming album (the last full LP she’ll release for Warner Bros.), due out this April. Queen M also recently shot the cover art for the album (believed to be titled Give It To Me) with renowned fashion photographer and frequent collaborator Steven Klein. As fans clamor for a glimpse at the superstar’s latest reinvention, details are starting to emerge about her new look and sound. Madonna’s stylist, B. (yes, she just goes by the initial), told Women’s Wear Daily at Chanel’s couture show on Tuesday that "Madonna’s look is going to be more edgy, more fresh — no more disco." And Warner Bros. staffers who heard the record at a listening session last month describe it as "very now." Says an insider: "For the first time, [Madonna’s] not chasing the next new sound. She’s embracing what’s happening today."

    Puhleez! I smell signs of desperation here from Madge since her pop albums are not selling as well so she might have thought “hmmm, why not dabble in RnB instead and compete with the Mimis, Beyonces, Rihannas and Ashantis of the word” How original. Stick to pop Madonna… some of us still love you for that even if that stuff doesn’t sell as much as RnB nowadays. Okay?! :)

    Oh, yeah, David. Poor poor Madonna really NEEDS to try the current sounds that are out there now. She hasn’t had a number 1 record since the 80’s, right? Stick with what YOU know, OK? Girlfriend’s ALWAYS been on the cutting edge, and has never had a problem hitting number 1. (How many is that again?) Will you be able to say that in 25 years about your Mimis, Beyonces, Rihannas and Ashantis? Probably not. Madonna’s “trying” what’s current now, just because she freaking likes it. And again, I highly doubt that she’ll fail. :)

    Wow, some people don’t seem to remember Bedtime Stories, her last awful attempt at R&B (which the quoted insider must forget… she was “embracing the sound” of 1993/1994 with producers like Dallas Austin and Babyface).

    The album will be a SMASH. It doesn’t matter what genre Madonna is involved in, it will still be very Madonna and pop. She will deliver. Madonna fans are very excited for 2008: the upcoming album, upcoming tour, her 50th birthday, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction, and 25th anniversary in the music industry.

    At least her hair looks really nice this time. I just hope Justin does not pull her top down. Lets be real here: Madonna is a business woman who knows how to rake the bucks in. Her voice is another matter.

    I’m not liking that Madonna is following in the steps of Nelly Furtado, but the two leaked songs, Candy Shop and especially The Beat Goes On, are quite good. Bedtime Stories is one of Madonna’s most underrated albums which had spawned the biggest smash of Madonna’s career Take a Bow. Looking forward to the album.

  • Derek

    I hope her album doesn’t sound like Justin and Nelly Furtado. Those albums are good with their Timbaland touch, but Madonna would just look like jumping on the hot Timbaland bandwagon….

    Madonna has not always been on the cutting edge of new music. I’m sure her detractors will accuse her of being desperate this time and jumping on the bandwagon. There’s truth to this, but it’s not like Madonna is the only one to do this. But it’s also important to realize that Madonna has worked with very well established producers before, such as Nile Rogers, David Foster, and Babyface. “Bedtime Stories,” by the way, is an excellent album.

    Madonna continues to be No.1 in every other part of the world – and it’s a BIG world – except in America. It’s not Madonna that need re-invention; it’s America.

    1) Confessions on a Dance Floor is the tenth studio album by pop singer Madonna, released on 15 November 2005 by Warner Bros. Records. It sold 2 million copies in its first week of release in Europe. The album went on to sell 8 million copies worldwide. It debuted at number one in 29 countries, a world record for a solo artist. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album in 2007
    2) “Take a Bow” is a song by American singer Madonna from her 1994 album Bedtime Stories, and her longest running #1 hit ever in the United States.
    3) Hasn’t she still earned your trust in terms of knowing what she’s doing? I’ve got no idea what’s her new status is gonna be like and I’ve got no but one expectation – it surely will be fun. The rest matters not
