Chris Brown will not be appearing on Timbaland’s upcoming effort Shock Value II.
According to TMZ, an insider claims that Brown was slated to appear on a track called “The One I Love” but was removed from the song due to his legal troubles.
Timbo’s manager, Marcus Spence, confirmed that Brown was dropped from the song but insisted the move as amicable.
“It was a creative decision for both parties,” said Spence. “There’s nothing against Chris. We love Chris.”
As reported earlier, Shock Value II will be hitting stores on December 8th. The set will feature appearances from Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, The Fray, Chris Daughtry, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Brandy, Keri Hilson and Young Money rapper Drake.
