Once upon a song, in the late '90s and early '00s, Missy Elliott and Timbaland joined forces to make some gloriously weird and innovative pop music. Then Timbaland met Timberlake, Justin that is, and they were the new hot couple everyone wanted at their dinner parties. Be that as it may, the last time we “Come Dined” with the two Timbas was in 2009, with the release of Shock Value II, and we'd be lying if we said we weren't looking for a third course. Shock Value III has been a long-time coming, and is still yet to lock down an official release date, but the sweet dessert is surely worth the wait as it promises long-awaited collaborations with Missy Elliott -- as we heard in his Timbo Thursdays affair -- and new music from Justin Timberlake, as confirmed, nay pledged, by the man himself.
