T.I. Says He Has Several New Songs With Justin Timberlake
Now that we’ve all had a chance to try on Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Suit & Tie,’ it’s only natural to wonder what’s in store for us in the rest of his upcoming ‘The 20/20 Experience’ record — and one person who might know a thing or two is Timberlake’s past collaborator, T.I.
T.I., who worked with Timberlake on the 2006 track ‘My Love,’ opened up to MTV about some more recent studio time the two shared with producer Timbaland. “I did a record for them at the end of last year. They were working on a record together, and I had the pleasure of assisting them on their particular record,” he revealed, adding, “I think it’s called ‘Goodbye Homey,’ one of them is, and then there is another one; I did maybe two or three records with them.”
As you might have already guessed from the title, ‘Homey’ was inspired by the feeling of what T.I. described as “saying goodbye to something that is very special to you” — but that doesn’t mean it relates to any particular relationship. “Not necessarily a person; it could be a time of your life, it could be an experience, it could be a relationship, it could be a friend that’s passed on,” he pointed out. “‘Goodbye Homey,’ it has so many meanings and definitions. So when you hear it, you absorb it, and then whatever it means to you is what we intended.”
Whether ‘Goodbye Homey’ — or any of the other songs they worked on together — made the ’20/20′ cut remains to be seen. But as far as T.I. is concerned, “It’s just great that he’s back into doing music.” Describing ‘Suit & Tie’ as “phenomenal,” he added, “It was definitely a sound that was missed.”
