Timbaland Promises Jay-z Multicultural Sound

SHAWN JAY ZCARTER's forthcoming album will shock his hard-core hip-hop fans - because superproducer TIMBALAND plans to feature bagpipes on the disc's tracks.
The hip-hop heavyweights are teaming up in the studio to record the Big Pimpin' star's new LP, and Timbaland insists using the Scottish instrument will lend the songs global appeal.
He says, "We want to go to the world. Some of the songs are gonna sound like (world music artist) M.I.A.
"You're gonna be like, 'Whoa!' But it's Jay on them. That means it reaches everywhere.
"I'm gonna have songs with bagpipes too. The music is gonna be so worldwide, he'll be able to tour the rest of his life, maybe, off just this one album."
