Legends Of Summer: Justin Visits 106 & Park, Talks Collaborations With Jay-Z, Working On Beyoncé's New Music + Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar & Justin Set For "Yahoo! On The Road"

Justin visited 106 & Park on Friday, to promote his new album The 20/20 Experience available, Tuesday, March 19.  Justin was treated like music royalty by Bow Wow and Co., who took Justin back down memory lane.  Mr. Timberlake was both humble and hilarious during his time on the couch.

He talked about the making of The 20/20 Experience, which he called the creation off, an experience unto itself.  He and Timbaland went in and created a lush music, rich in pop and r & b--creating music he could be passionate about, and loved.  The record he also says, is inspired by a mix of his musical inspirations.

Justin also talked about working with both Carters.  Revealing that he spent time with B & Jay this summer in the Hamptons, where B created a musical camp for the creation of her fifth album.  In her Vogue interview, she revealed that she and the producers were like one big family.  And it looks like Justin became a very close family member, because B gave him and Jay a room of their own to record in, and Justin says that he and Jay created a lot of songs during those sessions:
"I was with Timbaland and we were working on some stuff for Miss Beyoncé and she made the mistake of letting Jay and I have another room at the studio.  I don't want to give too much away but we've done a lot of songs together so hopefully those will find a way to see the light of day."
A tour EP, would be nice, maybe a couple tracks on The Great Gatsby all works!!!

Watch clips from Justin's time on the couch below and find out how he and Jay wound up touring together.  Also find out about Jay's and his part in "Yahoo! On The Road".

This week during SXSWYahoo! announced their first music tour, "Yahoo! On The Road".  The tour will hit 21 cities in the US and Europe.  Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, along with special guests Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and Trey Songz, are the first set of announced performers.  Below is a schedule of stops.

I wonder when and how many of the dates Jay will make?  Yahoo! hasn't released a schedule or official line-up yet.  The Carters have a busy summer.
