Timbaland to sample unreleased Marilyn Monroe track

Timbaland is to sample an unreleased Marilyn Monroe track.

The 43-year-old record producer is sampling the late 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' actress' only unreleased track, a swing number titled 'Down Boy' 53 years after she died of an overdose.

The song - which has never been heard before - was originally recorded for the 1953 movie but while her rendition of 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend' became a hit, 'Down Boy' was cut from the final edit.

Timbaland - who produced Michael Jackson's second posthumous album 'Xscape' in 2014 - is now working on a modern version of the track after meeting up with the owner to the rights, Hollywood resident Jack Allen.

Jack was just four when Marilyn died in 1962 but he became fascinated with classic Hollywood star as a photographer and TV executive in Los Angeles.

He told The Sun newspaper: "This is a beautiful song. Timbaland is working with it in the studio, so I can't wait to see what happens."

Jack - who also owns a lock of Marilyn's hair - bought the original song at an auction in April 2005 and originally wanted Madonna, Gwen Stefani or Mariah Carey to work on the updated track.
