Hip-hop producer Timbaland was left amazed recently - when he phoned Madonna to ask if she would like to collaborate, only to find out the pop superstar wanted to ask him the same question.
Timbaland has become one of the most sought after technicians in pop after working with artists including Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and Bjork.
He tells MTV, "I reached out to Madonna, and she was already trying to find me. I'm like, 'She was? Hmm.'
"It's funny. People will reach out to me, and I guess I beat them to the punch sometimes. It's crazy to see how many people want to work with me. I'm still in shock."
