Furtado also revealed that Timbaland praised her recent EDM collaboration with Dom Dolla, "Eat Your Man." “He told me he loved how I sounded on ‘Eat Your Man.’ It was nice to have his blessing on the new stuff, because Dom [Dolla]’s a really big fan of his as well,” said Furtado. She also said that fans can expect her new album, "soon," but didn't provide a specific date.

Furtado isn't the only collaborator Timbaland is reuniting with. He also recently confirmed that he's got an album with Justin Timberlake on the way. Speaking with Variety, he explained: “I just left working with him, we just finished up and everything sounds great. Now it’s really on him how he plans to wrap it up and how and when he envisions it to come out. With an artist of his caliber, everything has to be aligned, but it’s done and it’s coming." Timbaland produced Timberlake's hits “SexyBack,” “Cry Me a River,” “Summer Love,” and “My Love” as well as the entirety of Timberlake’s 2006 album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, and his 2013 album, The 20/20 Experience. Be on the lookout for more details about both Timberlake and Furtado's new music in the coming months.
