Timbaland has worked with some of the biggest names in music.

Famous for writing and producing hits for the likes of Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Rihanna, Beyonce, Jay Z and Kanye West, he has also released two studio albums made up of his own material.

Shock Value and Shock Value II featured collaborations with Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Timbaland’s remix of One Republic’s ‘Apologize’ became a massive hit back in 2007, giving One Republic their first ever US Number 1.

Although not confirmed, it is thought Timbaland and Smith are working on music for Sam’s upcoming second studio album.

Speaking previously about what fans can expect from the record, Smith said “I’m putting my heart even more out on the f***ing line.”

“I’m going even deeper. I can’t believe I’m even doing it, but I’m going even deeper.”
