Timbaland's been a busy man. It doesn't look like we'll be getting his solo album anytime soon, but after working on The 20/20 Experience and Magna Carta Holy Grail, he's got his hands full with Nas' upcoming 11th album, which already includes one potential hit featuring both Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.

Timb told Revolt TV that he's producing a bulk of the album, and one of the completed tracks is called "Sinatra in the Sands," with some bars from Jay and vocals from JT. "Nas got a song right now with him, Jay and Justin that’s completely stupid," he revealed excitedly. "It's called "Sinatra in the Sands" and Justin sounds like Frank Sinatra. Jay was like, man what you gon' do with that record B?"

 

Nas and Justin both contributed vocals to Hov's "BBC" on Magna Carta Holy Grail, so that'll make the trio's second collaboration for the year. As for Justin's Frank Sinatra chops...we saw that on display when he performed "New York, New York" during his "Legends of the Summer" tour with Jay-Z at Yankee Stadium last week, using the song to introduce Hov's "Empire State of Mind."
