Timbaland and longtime collaborator Missy Elliott will both release new albums come June, Timbaland tells MTV. The new collections mark a long-awaited return for both artists—it's been seven years since Elliott's The Cookbook and three since Timbaland's Shock Value II. In classic Timbo-Misdemeanor style, they’re purposefully keeping the releases in sync: “I just don’t want to move too ahead of her, and she [doesn’t] want to move too ahead of me,” Timbaland says. “So we’re both doing it at the same time.” [via Pitchfork]
