Album Watch: Shock Yo Self a Second Time

Monday, October 5, 2009

From the feeling of things, the shock is still on, Shock Value Vol. 2, that is as Timbaland is going in for a second helping of his artist collaborative project from 2007. It was rumored back in December of 2008 that the super producer was working on the project, now its definite as the guest line-up has been revealed. Guests include Drake, Lady GaGa, Paramore, Katy Perry, Shakira, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake (naturally), Kings of Leon and Brandy. Not the best line up, rather typical if you ask me, but the news that caught my eye was that Brandy is making her appearance on the album not singing, but rapping. Yes, rapping. Or fast talking in an R&B flavored song...that's my guess. Here's hoping that Timbaland refreshes his sound on this, because we can only take that repetition drum beat for so many years. Still, not going to sit here on my tush and say this isn't going to excite me, cause it does, but I'd just wish Timbaland would kind of shake the pot with this, and give us something to really be shocked over. Shock Value 2 will be in stores November 24th.

  1. I'm not overly impressed with the supposed guestlist for the new album.

    Infact, the only two that will be worth checking out are Kings Of Leon and Brandy.

    But to be honest, I preferred Timbaland when he worked with only those elite few back in the day, you know, people like Missy, Tweet, Ginuwine and Aaliyah. He was a lot better in sound then, I know artists have to move on and he certainly lost his drive after Aaliyah tragically passed away, but Timbaland isn't producing the best of material just lately and I do love his work, I just prefer his earlier work.
