Initially planned for release on November 23, 2009, Timbaland’s long-awaited Shock Value 2 has been pushed back. The album was supposed to have gone head-to-head with releases from Birdman, Rihanna, and 50 Cent. Perhaps to avoid being buried by the competition, Timbo has decided to let his album wait a bit longer.
Not long after the release of 2007’s Shock Value, Timbaland revealed plans of going right back in to release Shock Value 2. With no work started on the album, he promised it for a 2008 release. However, once 2008 began, Timbo had to handle projects from Keri Hilson, Beyonce, Timbaland, and Jay-Z.
Now that those releases are out of the way, Timbaland has had a real chance to go in and work on this album. As of late, Tim’s creative juices have been flowing at an extremely high rate. That is evidenced by listening to the tracks that he cut for The Blueprint 3. Those were said to have been the worst beats that he had made.
Timbaland is now set to release Shock Value 2 on December 8, 2009 through Mosely Music Group and Interscope Records. Now, he will be going head-to-head with Game and his The R.E.D. Album.
