Talking about the song which should have happened in his newly-released studio album, Drizzy says that it 'was gonna be dope' with 'a solid little look.'

has secured such A-listers as , , and in "", but he said the guest list could have been a little longer. In a recent interview with Billboard, he revealed there was one collaboration he really wanted to have but couldn't make it happen.

Drizzy said, "I mean I really wanted to work with on this project. And we came so close man, so close." Explaining why the duet with the former member was canceled, the Canadian rapper reasoned, "He's just super busy, and not in the music mindset right now as far as creating."

Indeed, Justin has been occupied with his big screen projects. In 2011 alone, the "SexyBack" hitmaker has at least three movie releases. "", which stars him and , came out in June; "", which pairs him up with , followed a month later; and "", which has him sharing screen with , was released in October.

Talking about the song which was shelved, Drizzy gushed, "The song was gonna be dope." He added, "It was solid - a solid little look. But he's so immersed in the acting thing, and I don't blame him, he's doing great at it. He was just like, 'I really want to work, I just can't do it right now. But we'll work as soon as I'm back in the studio'."

Drizzy stated, "So he gave me his word on that, so I'm looking forward to looking with him. Even just giving him some ideas, writing, him working with [producer Noah "40" Shebib], I think that would just sound crazy, Justin Timberlake and 40."

"Half the time, I just want artists to work on 40's beats, I don't even really want to intrude. I just want to hear them. 40 has so many ideas, and I'd love to hear an artist like Justin Timberlake to see what he and 40 could come up with, but that was the one person that I was sorta like, 'Damn!' But we'll get it though."
