Timbaland first worked with Aaliyah when he and Missy Elliot co-produced most of her second album, One in a Million, and the three became close friends and frequent collaborators. This year, Timbaland produced a remake of the album's title track for rising singer and rapper, Tink. The original tune, was at the top of the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for eight weeks in 1996 t0 1997, reports Billboard.
Timbaland is doing evidently all he can to keep Aaliyah's memory alive and well, from his recent production of Tink's "Million" remake to his consistent shout-outs on social media -- and now he's about to take it one step further by finally releasing some unreleased music from the late and great R&B singer.
Over the weekend, Timbaland took to Instagram to confirm, that he does, in fact, have unreleased deep cuts from his time as her frequent collaborator. Following up on Sunday with another 'gram that showed Aaliyah with a Straight Outta Compton spoof stamp ("Straight Outta Heaven"), it seems to now just be a matter of waiting for him to drop it.
Believe us, Timbo, we will "Stay tune!!!!!!"
