The 20 Best Timbaland Beats

Justin Timberlake is back in the spotlight with his acclaimed new album, The 20/20 Experience. The disc, his first in six years, dropped last Tuesday and is expected to sell nearly a million records, easily landing him yet another No. 1. But he didn't do it alone: The album is produced by long-time collaborator Timbaland, who laced JT with lush, futuristic-soul beats. Not that we should expect anything less — Timbaland is one of the most important hip hop, R&B and pop producers of the past quarter-century. Here, in honor of his big win with Justin, we sift through Timbaland's seemingly endless catalog of hits and list his 20 best beats. —Alex Gale (Photo: Jerritt Clark/FilmMagic)
