THR Names Music's 35 Top Hitmakers
This story first appeared in the Feb. 15 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
Missy Elliott, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg are just a few who've benefited from the golden ear of 40-year-old Timothy Z. Mosley, aka Timbaland. OneRepublic's career took a new trajectory after their "Apologize" remix appeared on Timbaland's 2007 Shock Value. (Vocalist Ryan Tedder admits, "Your first single should never be that big.") Timbaland's work with Justin Timberlake on his 2006 smash FutureSex/LoveSounds netted three Top 5 singles, including the No. 1 "SexyBack." As the Virginia native looks to repeat that success with Timberlake's "Suit & Tie," the groundwork for future hits also is being laid in a just-inked deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation.Click here to read THR's complete Pop's Top 35 Hitmakers list.
