Timbaland Apologizes To Chris Brown
Following his interview with Revolt TV where he slammed posthumous collaborations with Aaliyah, producer Timbaland took to Twitter to apologize for his comments regarding Chris Brown’s “Don’t Think They Know.”
“I want 2 publicly apologize 2 my lil homie @chrisbrown 4 my statements on revolt regarding the Aaliyah collaborations,” he wrote. “I actually like the song wit him n Aaliyah, its just when you are talking about babygirl its a very sensitive subject with me. So the people who not only worked with her but grew a bond so tight we are like family so im very over protective over her.”
The Roc Nation beatsmith, real name Timothy Mosley, has been credited for producing the bulk of Baby Girl’s catalog including her breakout record “Are You That Somebody?” and “More Than A Woman.” When word hit the ‘Net that Drake and his right-hand Noah “40” Shebib were going to executive produce a new Aaliyah album, the “Care 4 U” singer’s family didn’t seem to be down for the cause.
“There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family,” her younger brother Rashad wrote on her artist Facebook last August.
Still, Timbaland has been very protective when it comes to the singer, who passed away at 22 in a tragic plane crash in 2001, but wanted to make amends with Brown.
“I have mad luv 4 my dude @chrisbrown,” he continued. “A mother lost a daughter. a brother lost a sister. that is still grieving over her passing. it just a very sensitive subject. I just want the family to be respected.”
This isn’t the first round of sorries for Timbo. He recently revealed that he penned an apology track to Jay Z.
