In 2009, Timbaland promised to release another solo album, Shock Value II, featuring Keri Hilson, Justin Timberlake, Gwen Stefani, Beyoncé, Rihanna, TI, Missy Eliot, T-Pain, Jordin Sparks and the Jonas Brothers ".
In 2007, Timbaland and Danja co-produced Duran Duran's Red Carpet Massacre, co-produced the first single from Britney Spears' fifth album Gimme More, and in 2008 Timbaland also produced the pop group's album with Danja Pussycat Dolls.

In November 2010, Timbaland announced that he would be releasing a new song every Thursday. She plans to release her new album "Shock Value III" in 2012.
