Ladies and gentlemen, it’s my pleasure to reintroduce to you…

Justin Timberlake, the last true icon of millennial male pop stars, is heading back into the studio.

During an interview with Digital Spy, producer Jim Beanz recently spilled the beans (DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) on JT’s upcoming project: New tracks for Timbaland‘s upcoming album, Shock Value 3.

From Digital Spy:

“When I get back to the States I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project,” Beanz said.

“It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up!”

He added: “He has some crazy, crazy stuff.”

That’s right: He’s bringing sexy back. Again. EDIT: Sort of.

While a spokesperson has since shot down rumors of a full album coming (boo hiss, etc.), they’ve confirmed that JT will still be recording tracks for Timba’s new record. So, fingers crossed that it rekindles the flame?

While we’ve had a few male pop stars carrying the torch during this long six year hiatus–including the legitimately amazing Usher, the talented-but-who-wants-it Bruno Mars and the astoundingly unspectacular Justin Bieber–it’s been no secret: Timberlake’s presence in pop has been sorely missed.

The timing simply couldn’t be better, either: With the Almighty Legendtina just weeks away from belching out the lead single from the next chapter in her flaw-filled discography, the two are all but destined to deliver a repeat of the Justified/Stripped Tour, this time sponsored by Taco Bell and Red Lips Anal Bead Mic Stand & Co.

Early warning: Watch your weave, Bieber.
