Grammy-winning producer, TIMBALAND is set to release his new mixtape, KING STAYS KING on Christmas Day. The multi-talented musician teamed up with music’s newest acts, Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, Mila J, Blaze and more to create the ultimate holiday gift from music lovers! This is TIMBALAND’s first major project since his success as the executive music producer for FOX’s television series, EMPIRE.
KING STAYS KING is a 16 track mixtape that captures the classic “Timbaland” sound with the assistance of new acts who have developed their own signature musical style in 2015. TIMBALAND takes the lead on the entire project’s production. One of the mixtape’s stand out tracks, “Get No Betta” features R&B’s breakout star and Motown signee, Mila J. Mila and TIMBALAND’s chemistry on the track is undeniable and both artists’ styles beautifully blend together. The more unexpected collaborations on the mixtape come from hip-hop’s most interesting and genre bending artists, Young Thug, Blaze, and Rich Homie Quan. The record, “Didn’t Do It” with Young Thug features his trademark hip-hop crooning over brilliant beats from TIMBALAND. The song, “Servin” featuring Blaze, also a single to KING STAYS KING, is one of the hottest tracks on the project, sure to be a fan favorite. To some fans, the most exciting news about KING STAYS KING is that it will feature an unheard track from the late singer, Aaliyah. Through out the entire mixtape, each unforeseen collaboration makes for an extremely cohesive project.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been able to give the world some new music. I’ve spent a lot of time working on this project and I am just looking forward to giving my fans some dope sounds to close out the year,” says TIMBALAND.
Soon after the mixtape’s release, TIMBALAND will continue to gift his fans with music videos for “Get No Betta” featuring Mila J and “Servin” featuring Blaze, which they are currently shooting in Atlanta. In January, the producer will embark on a 20 date club tour, performing his new music and classic hits.
