Producer Timbaland decided to give us a trip down memory lane via Twitter tonight by telling a story about making the 1998 hit single “Are You That Somebody” with the late R&B icon Aaliyah.

Check out the video below to see him talk about making the beat with late producer Static Major, Aaliyah’s reaction to the famous baby cooing in the background, and how the song—the 3rd most played video on MTV in 1998—actually almost didn’t happen. —Keenan Higgins
