Timbaland wished us all a Merry Christmas when he released his newest mixtape King Stays King last Friday featuring a track with (fikki-fikki) Baby Girl, the late Aaliyah.
Timbo, Missy Elliott and Aaliyah collaborated on some of the greatest songs of the past 20 years--from "One in a Milion" to "Are You That Somebody?" and "Try Again" to name a few--before Aaliyah's life was tragically cut short 14 years ago.
Aaliyah's memory still lingers on, particularly in the current crop of R&B divas (howyoudoin', Tinashe?). However, Timbo reminded us that nothing compares to the original on the track "Shakin'" from King Stays King--just try not to smile as soon as you hear Aaliyah's voice on the chorus. Then dust yourself off and try again.
Check out "Shakin'" (track #2) and the rest of Timbalan'd mixtape below:
