Timbaland says he has unreleased music from Aaliyah.
Timbaland posted a photo of Aaliyah on his Instagram, saying that he is often asked if he has any never-before-heard music from the late singer. In the caption, he confirmed that he does have several unreleased tracks from the R&B singer and promises to release several songs.
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 very close friends and frequently worked together on several other songs.
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 to 1997, according to Billboard.
In 2001, Aaliyah died in a plane crash when she was traveling from the Bahamas where she had filmed the music video for the song, “Rock the Boat.” This month marks the 14th anniversary of her death.
