I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never seen this Documentary. This is a special episode of MTV’s My Block from 2007 where they Interviewed Timbaland, Chad Hugo, Pharrell, Kenna, Pusha T, Malice, Trey Songz and many other Virginia artists about their success, living in Virginia and why everyone is so successful from VA, it’s gotta be something in the water… check it out below.
Saweetie sat down with PaperMag to talk about her new album and working with Timbaland. "He gave me this 20-year-old, fresh energy and would have made me think that he was a brand new producer who was super talented," she says. "It took me by surprise because normally, when you work with people who've been in the game for a while to kind of be second in their era — but he was just so hip, then just fell on top of what was the hot town. So I'm so grateful for the opportunity because he definitely pushed me to challenge myself. A lot of people say that they cook in the studio," but he was literally cooking in the studio and it felt like that."
"I think when me and Tim got together, I was trying to figure out who I was as a woman, as an artist," she says. "So I think we experimented a lot and while I think that it was great, I've got a lot to talk about now. "I'm interested in going back and starting from scratch to make even bigger songs with him. What we made sounds great, but I'm really excited to see what we can do now that I have figured out who I am."
Timbaland also responded to working with Saweetie: "She's a great person, and she's very intuitive about her career and her artistry," he says. "We did a lot of songs, so I don't know what songs she's going to put on the album, but I'm excited for it," he continues. "Whatever that body of work is, all the work we've done, I know it's going to be amazing. So I'm just curious to see how she keys her body of work together."
It has been quite the year,
There are certainly lessons amidst the struggles, but regardless, difficult circumstances take a toll on our society. Something that changed everyone’s lives so profoundly – leaving no country or continent untouched – was bound to have a significant impact on us, a year that has required some serious mental fortitude to overcome and it’s strength redefined. A motto that puts the emphasis on strength being something that comes from deep within.
Something that we all have access to. Something that we are all capable of. A mindset. So, here is to new horizons and to our mental fortitude. Let's cultivate it. Wishing you a fresh start with renewed energy and confidence throughout. Here's to a bright New Year and a fond farewell to the old, here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold. At the closing of 2020 I hope your holiday season is full of peace, joy, and happiness, check out all Timbaland releases from 2020 below!
