In the clip, the two are singing and dancing to a new song playing in the background, specifically a verse where Lizzo takes the lead. If it looks like that’s Meek Mill blowing his nose in the background of the studio, that’s because it likely is. Timberlake later posted an Instagram photo of the two “building” in the same location later on.
Back in June, Lizzo herself hinted that the two of them may work together. “Justin Timberlake, he’s trying to make music. I was like, ‘Boy, stop!'” she told Extra, later adding that when asked if she would, she responded, “Hell yeah!” It looks like that possibility became a reality. Only time will tell when the rest of the world gets to hear their collaboration in full, though.
Check out the post teasing the collaboration below, where you can hear a snippet of the song, as well as Timberlake’s photo with Meek Mill.
