The super-sized knob-twiddler, best known for his work with Missy Elliott, told a popular music television channel: "Hip hop is the same ol', same ol'. I can do a beat and keep doing it, but it's not the same. The only musician I'd like to do a song with is Coldplay. That's the only one I really want to work with now."
Exactly how such a collaboration would work is a little mystifying - Coldplay are hardly ones to think outside of the box at the best of times. The two parties have already met however, although nothing has been finalised as yet. Maybe Timbaland's sweet on Gwyneth? Or maybe he thought they were actually dropping science on 'The Scientist'? Whatever; the mind, it boggles.
