Timbaland in the studio with Usher

We first gave you the news that indeed Timbaland and Usher were working together and now we have confirmation that the session has taken place. Not only just Timbaland, however, but the Royal Court, The Clutch, and Jimmy D were also there for the session at Cherry Beach Sound Studios in Toronto, Canada. Here is the info from their myspace page.

****International recording artist Usher came to Toronto this month and recorded tracks at Cherry Beach Sound for his upcoming record, slated for release late this year under the Zomba label group. The record is being produced by Timbaland.

At the studio were: Usher; Timbaland; King Logan and Jerome, producers for Timbaland; hit songwriter Sean Garret; Candice Nelson, Ezekiel Lewis, and Balewa Muhammad of top songwriting team The Clutch; with engineers Jimmy Douglass and Miles Walker. Mark Pitts, President of Urban Music for the Zomba Label Group oversaw the session, which coincided with Timbaland's presence in the city as part of the recent Toronto dates on the Justin Timberlake tour.

The team took over the entire studio, breaking out into multiple rooms to work on different tasks simultaneously. It was the first time any of the group had ever recorded in Toronto. Mark Pitts commented on being very pleased “with how accommodating everyone was.” Studio staff Inaam Haq, Ron Allen, and Jordan Valeriote worked hard to make sure to make sure everyone was happy.****

I think the site is confusing "record" for track(s) unless that is Timbo is producing all of Usher's next album("record") which I doubt. This is the 3rd time Tim has worked with Usher and I haven't been disappointed yet so I look forward to what they've come up with.

Damn, what a team.

Lots of people use record/track/song interchangeably. Gets confusing sometimes...

its a lil too late for this collabo in my opinion females lost respect for usher once they seen his wife lol and u already know that royal court will actually do the track for usher so most likely its wack and we have too listen too that same wack ass dude use tim adlibs all over the song...as if he is the new reincarnated tim..i just think he is jumpin on the timbo bandwagon i could of swore he dissed tim and justin few months ago...i guess times are hard since j.d hasnt had a hit in awhile
