Your single “Never Ever,” with Young Jeezy, came out in January, and “Love Sex Magic,” with Justin Timberlake, in March. What do you think of your collaborators?
Jeezy’s someone I’ve known for years and years. We started out working around each other like six years ago, right around when I was getting ready to release my first album. Working with Justin was so fun. He’s so down to earth, and honestly we laughed away the whole studio session.
This was your first time working with Timberlake. How did you meet?
We met each other years ago at a concert of his. We both were releasing our albums, and I happened to go to one of his concerts and we met backstage and said hey, talked a little bit about music, kept it moving, and now both of us happen to have the same manager. He was like, “Justin has some songs he wants you to hear.” I was like, “I think it would be dope if we worked together.”
Justin is hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, when you’re the musical guest. If you have to take part in a sketch, what celebrity would you impersonate?
Mary J. Blige would be one of them. I sometimes like to play around with her and have fun. And it would be fun to do Janet Jackson.
What are your tour plans for the summer?
After the promo run, I’ll be taking off to tour with Britney in the U.K. — I’ll be doing some things with her in the U.K., Germany and some other places, then I keep on tour from there and come to the U.S. So it’s a mixture of partying — ooh, not partying [laughs] — a mixture of touring there and the U.S., all in one.
Her tour is circus-themed. What’s the craziest thing you’ll do onstage? Shoot out of a canon?
One time I had to have my guys toss me up in the air and land on the ground with a big “boom” ending. It’s the craziest feeling because you’re flying, just going for it, but it’s all about how you control yourself when you land. I said I’d never do it again, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m so down for that. The combination of Britney and I is going to be like going through an amusement park.
