*Longtime friends and collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliot are both planning to release solo albums in June.
The artists – who last worked together on the 2011 track ‘Take Ur Clothes Off’ – want to drop their forthcoming records, Timbaland’s “Shock Value III” and Missy’s “Block Party,” at the same time so they don’t move “too ahead” of each other.
“Right now, we’re just preparing to get both our videos, our first singles, shot kinda at the same time,” Timbaland told MTV News. “We want to do it as a movement and spontaneously. I just don’t want to move too ahead of her, and she doesn’t want to move too ahead of me.”
Missy has recently been working as a songwriter and producer for Keyshia Cole, Monica and Jazmine Sullivan, but she hasn’t released a full-length album since 2005’s “The Cookbook.”
She will be featured on Timbaland’s star-studded album along with Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Chris Brown.
