Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado have reunited after 16 years on their new single, Keep Going Up.
The follow-up to the trio’s 2007 collaboration, Give It To Me, marks the Grammy-winning producer’s first official solo single in more than eight years, arriving under a partnership between his Mosley Music Group and Def Jam Recordings.

Six years after releasing her sixth and most recent album, ‘The Ride’ (2017), Nelly recently confirmed she’s been in the studio for the past year and has a bunch of tracks ready to go.
“I have so much music. I’ve recorded a hundred songs in the last 18 months, and I’m so excited to bring people new music,” she shared.
Teasing various collaborations, including Eat Your Man with DJ Dom Dolla, plus a track with Colombian band Bomba Estéreo, she added: “I’ve surrounded myself with so many creative people in the studio over the last year. I’ve taken a ‘the more, the merrier’ approach and understood that you have to be open to staying exciting and fresh.
“It’s all about staying creative, being out there, listening to music, and being in the mix,” the Canadian star continued. “You can’t expect to just rest on your laurels and then one day saunter into the studio and make good music.”
