J-Roc Talks Working With Timbaland On Beyonce's 2013 Album
The album was in the works for roughly a year-and-a-half, partially crafted at a house Beyoncé’s team procured in New York. Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, who co-produced standouts like “Drunk In Love” and “Partition,” says that he and frequent collaborator Timbaland were called in together to work on the project relatively early on.
