Washington, Mar 8 : Pop diva Madonna has admitted that working with Justin Timberlake was like having psychoanalytic sessions.
The 49-year-old revealed that both the singers used to discuss issues or problems with people while writing their songs.
"We kind of had psychoanalytic sessions whenever we wrote songs. We'd sit down and start talking about situations. And then we'd start talking about issues or problems or relationships with people," People quoted her as telling Interview magazine.
"That was the only way, because you know, writing together with somebody is very intimate," she added.
Madonna is all set to release her 11th studio album tilted 'Hard Candy' recorded in collaboration with Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Pharrell Williams on April 29. The two musicians worked together on a track titled"4 Minutes to Save the World."
"He's open and he's got talent. He's a songwriter. I haven't worked with a lot of songwriters where I'm instantly connected and start riffing and playing with the rhythm of the words," she said.
"He's as interested in rhythm of words as the meaning of words. I enjoyed that process with him," she added.
