The rapper and producer, who previously claimed that he was done with hip-hop, said he has been forced to change his style after other singers copied him.
He told the Daily Star: "I feel like everybody’s now doing what I did on [single] 'The Way I Are'. I started it and they followed, so I felt I had to come up with a new style, and I think I’ve got it. I call it organic.
"I’m making music the way I would have done before modern equipment and music recording."
Timbaland's new single 'Getaway' features Michelle Branch and will be used to promote the new Mini Cooper Countryman car.
