Timbaland To Release Never-Heard-Before Music From Aaliyah
Over the weekend, Timbaland posted several photos of Aaliyah on his Instagram, revealing he will release never-heard-before music from the late singer. Timbaland captioned one of the photos, with:
“Attention!!!!! People ask me all the time do I have any babegirl music we haven’t heard !!!!!well the answer is YES!!!!!!!! TIMBO x BABEGIRL !!!!! Sneak peak coming !!!!!!!”
Since Aaliyah’s 2001 passing, we’ve only heard Drake and Chris Brown incorporate various samples of the singer’s music on their records. Two years ago, Timbaland told ReVolt TV he would prefer if they do not use her samples because the “We Need A Resolution” singer’s only musical soulmate is him.
“In music, people always say, ‘I’m going to do a song with Aaliyah.’ It will never work. Chris Brown got a record, it won’t work. Drake can go do a record with Aaliyah, it ain’t gonna work. Aaliyah music only work with its soulmate, which is me,” Timbaland continued by noting that he was not in support of Drake and Noah ‘40’ Shebib releasing a post-humous album of Aaliyah’s work. Last year January, Drake and Shebib decided not to release the album after Aaliyah’s family said they do not support it.
While we wait for Timbaland to release Baby Girl’s new music from his vault, here are five of our all-time favorite songs by Aaliyah.
