While Aaliyah’s long-time collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott have expressed disapproval of her upcoming album, it doesn’t erase the early praise that Timbo gave Drake when the two collaborated on the 2009 rotation runner “Say Something.” In an interview with MTV News, Tim Mosley said he loved Drizzy’s “tone” and revealed that Jay-Z had hooked the two up. Funny coincidence that Hov was the middle man who brokered the duet, since he was a rumored lover of Aaliyah’s back in the day.
