Hollywood’s “it” couple of the ’00s Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake may not collaborate anytime soon despite earlier reports.

Earlier this week, avid fans of the former Disney sweethearts were sent into a frenzy when news broke that they are in talks to team up on a new song together. According to US Weekly, it all started with Timbaland’s subtle confirmation of the highly-anticipated collaboration.

According to reports, Maddie Lazer and Hannah Rowston– hosts of the Pop University podcast — caught up with the music producer at the set of ABC’s singing competition show, Boy Band. Apparently, the two hosts approached Timbaland during a commercial break and asked about the possible collaboration.

Lazer and Rowston reportedly shouted “Justney” to Timbaland, referring to Justin and Britney. The rapper initially thought it was “Justin” and responded by saying, “It’s coming! New music, 2018.”

However, the hosts clarified their query and repeated, “No, no. Justney, Justney!” According to Lazer and Rowston, Timbaland’s eyes widened upon realizing what they were saying.

The podcasts hosts then explained to the producer what they meant, saying, “Justin and Britney and you,” to which Timbaland replied with a nod, saying, “Yes, it’s coming. It’s coming.”

This is not the first time that Timbaland sparked rumors of a Spears-Timberlake collab. In April, the hitmaker liked several photos of the ex-couple on Instagram. Interestingly, Timbaland’s liking spree online happened after hitting the studio with Justin, Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Britney’s former producer Danja.
