Timbaland is one of the most celebrated and decorated production geniuses of our lifetime. He’s crafted global smash hits for some of the greatest entertainers of our day — from Jay-Z to Missy Elliott to Justin Timberlake to Beyoncé – he’s single handedly shaped modern music as we know it. But how does an aspiring artist hit the radar of someone as established as Timbaland? Seemingly impossible, right?
Well, think again because thanks to Lenovo and Microsoft the artists and fans now have the power to make the impossible possible. Enter the Team Up With Timbaland Song Contest – a new program set to empower the underdog, and the potential star in all of us. Kicking off on August 18th, Team Up With Timbaland Song Contest can now win a chance to have a hit hand-crafted by the living legend Timblanad – all courtesy of Lenovo and Microsoft.
Artists can enter to win by uploading a YouTube video or Soundcloud link of their best original track to Lenovo.Com/Teamup. From August 27th to September 28th, fans can share and VOTE for their favorite original tracks and artists. Simple as that. But Lenovo and Microsoft aren’t just giving the artists a chance to win – fans also have the opportunity to take home some one-of-a-kind prizes. By voting everyday for the Team Up With Timbaland Sweepstakes until October 22nd, the fans will have a chance to win Lenovo products and other dope tech gear, which will be given out every other week.
Timbaland and an esteemed panel of judges will review the tracks with the most votes and then narrow it down to their five (5) favorite, which will be scored on originality, creativity and star appeal. The five (5) finalists will be selected and announced on October 13th, and each contestant will have a special two week musical challenge that will be created by the evil genius Timbaland himself.
The artist who crushes the competitions and demolishes the tasks will then win the ultimate prize: a once in a lifetime day-long recording session with Timbaland in Miami. It does’t get much better than that. A dream come true courtesy of Lenovo and Microsoft. Check the calendar or important dates below, and get to submitting now. What are you waiting for?
