The US producer has recorded a song to say sorry to the rapper for their fallout recently.
Timbaland has revealed he and Keri Hilson have recored a song apologising to Jay-Z and Beyonce on his new album.
The 'Give It 2 Me' producer revealed in an interview with Revolt TV that he almost missed out on working with Jay-Z on the rapper's new album 'Magna Carta' Holy Grail' because of a minor fall out.
Timbaland did not reveal what the fall out was about but did reveal he missed out on Jay-Z 40th birthday celebrations because of it, before they made amends in time for him to get back in the studio with the popular rap star.
"Jay and I fell out. I missed his 40th. It was over petty stuff," Timbaland revealed. "It was more personal stuff and disagreements. It was not industry-related. It was personal and I was wrong."

Timbaland went on to tease a song on his new album called 'Sorry', which also sees guest vocalist Keri Hilson addressing rumours her 2009 song 'Turnin' Me On' was a diss towards Beyonce.
"I got this one song that I did with Keri on my album called 'Sorry' and Keri actually tells the story about the whole Beyonce thing and how she was sorry about it because she wasn't really talking about Beyonce but other people," Timbaland explained.
"In my verse I'm saying, 'We cop the same Range, we talk the same dames, same things, same lane. Now we see each other, don't even speak. That's f*****d up. I missed your 40th and that hurt me so deep. Accept my apology."
The pair are seemingly back on good terms now with Timbaland featuring on Jay-Z's new album track 'BBC', as well as Jay-Z touring and recording with Timbaland's longtime collaborator Justin Timberlake.
Timbaland is expected to return soon with new album 'Shock Value III'.
