From Madonna to Keri Hilson, [artist id="503162"]Timbaland[/artist]‘s collaborations have spanned many genres. And while he’s not hurting for longtime friends to work with (Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado), he’s always looking for new talent. Next on the producer’s collabo wish list? [artist id="3079280"]Demi Lovato[/artist].
In a video message posted on YouTube, Timbo shares his thoughts about the Disney starlet, who is still checked into a treatment center for “emotional and physical issues.”
“Demi, I’m so … I’m sitting here looking. Man, I’m just like, ‘Wow.’ You are amazing, girl,” he gushed. “I’m kind of funny. I’m very hard to please, and I’m just not an easy person to please, so I’m very impressed. I’m very impressed. I got to hear you sing some of your songs, and I’m like, ‘Wow.’ ”
Timbaland was so amazed with Lovato’s talents that he’s already created a track for the singer/actress. The super-producer played a clip of an acoustic ballad, admitting that he has yet to add his signature touch.
“I’m going to play a song that we did just for you,” he said. “It ain’t finished. It don’t have my stamp of knockness to it yet. I’m playing a song just for you, only for you. Are you ready? It goes something like this. I wrote this for you.”
“You said you would take care of me/ We would always be living good/ And you said you get big one day, but you wouldn’t get Hollywood/ Then opportunity called your name and you said that you didn’t feel the same way I felt for you,” a female vocalist sings on the demo.
While a team-up with the producer hasn’t been confirmed, Demi’s camp has said that the teen sensation will hit the road later this year to promote a new album.
