Artist and producer Timbaland, widely acknowledged as one of music's most inventive and distinctive creators, will perform two new songs during halftime of the 30th annual McDonald's All American Boys Game, which tips off at 8:00 p.m. (EDT), March 28, 2007 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.
Timbaland's latest hit single, "Give it to Me," featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, is climbing the Top 40 of the Billboard Pop 100 chart and the music video recently premiered on MTV's "TRL." The song will appear on his second solo album "Timbaland Presents Shock Value," which will be released April 3.
Timbaland's show at the McDonald's All American Games coincides with the end of his special guest stint on the first leg of Timberlake's 2007 FutureSex/LoveShow World Tour.
"In my line of work, I get to partner with the world's top artists, but I'm particularly proud to work with the McDonald's All American Games, which showcases the best basketball talent in the U.S.," said Timbaland.
Timbaland's music career spans from disc jockey to hip-hop artist and producer. His ability to work across musical genres has led to collaboration with an extensive and diverse list of standout artists including, Missy Elliott, Magoo, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Beck, The Pussycat Dolls, Fall Out Boy, Elton John and most recently, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. A number of these artists and others will be a part of "Shock Value." The album, much like Timbaland's career, fuses genres from rap and hip-hop to pop, punk pop and garage rock to South Asian influences.
"With Timbaland's involvement in the McDonald's All American Games, it pairs the best of musical entertainment with the best of high school basketball," said Tara Hayes, McDonald's U.S. Communications.
The purpose of the McDonald's All American Games is to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities(R) (RMHC(R)). A portion of the proceeds from the 2007 Games will go to RMHC of Kentuckiana.
