Timbaland is giving his fundraiser for Flint another go.

After an appearance at downtown Detroit’s Bleu nightclub last week turned sour, with the hip-hop superproducer reportedly refusing to perform after being serviced with the wrong champagne by club owners, he will return to Bleu on March 4, his reps announced Thursday. The show will raise money for victims of Flint’s water crisis.

“After speaking with Timbaland, we are pleased that any previous misunderstandings have been talked through and we are able to move forward for the greater good benefiting the people of Flint,” Bleu owner Mitchell Jaworski said in a statement. “By working together, we hope that we can help the people of Flint in their time of need.”

In a statement, Timbaland said, “I’m looking forward to returning to Detroit for this benefit performance. It has always been about the people of Flint, Michigan so I am grateful to be able to donate even more to address this crisis.”

Proceeds from the event’s ticket sales will benefit victim’s of Flint’s water crisis, according to a release, and Timbaland will be making an additional donation to the cause.

Ticket prices and on-sale information for the event is TBA.
