R&B duo Timbaland & Magoo's upcoming Blackground/Virgin album "Indecent Proposal" won't be out until late summer, but the pair are in Los Angeles this week shooting a video for first single "Drop." The clip, directed by J Jesse Smith, is set during a "boat party" and features a cameo from DJ Fat Man Scoop.

Timbaland may be a household name, thanks to high-profile collaborations with Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, and Jay-Z, but he tells Billboard that the new album truly gives Magoo the chance to shine.

"[The fans] already accept him," Timbaland says of his partner, "but I think they're going to accept him on a whole other level. I feel like [the new album is] up there with 'The Chronic 2001' [by Dr. Dre]. It's got a lot of elements. They're going to really look at us as official, that's my personal opinion. Once they do that, I think [Magoo] should just come right back out [with another album]. I don't think he should relax."

"Indecent Proposal" is the follow up to 1997's "Welcome to Our World," which featured the No. 12 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Up Jumps Da Boogie."
