Timbaland hosted a Google Hangout with fans something something. On tour, late at night something something. All that’s irrelevant because the best news came around the 3:29 mark.
That’s when a fan apparently ask him about Jodeci and Timbo says “I met with Devante and I’m going to help work on the new Jodeci album, just for y’all to know. I ain’t really supposed to say.” But, he didn’t stop there as he mentions that “That’ll be my career coming in full circle, connecting back with Devante.”
The producer also credits Missy as being the first person to recognize his talent and shares that she has an album in the works*. Also, he’s done work on Michael’s Jackson’s posthumous release.
Now, the last time we heard Devante’s name it was from K-Ci and JoJo saying all they knew is he was on a ranch tending to horses. In fact, they made it seem like they had no idea what neither Devante nor Dalvin were up to. That was just in August of last year.
How Timbaland found them or how the four members found each other and starting recording already is beyond me. Timbaland even goes so far to quantify the resulting music as good. Whatever’s going on just let them come back with the same talent and energy that pushed them to the top of music years ago.
