Tonight (Nov. 15) was the premiere of the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, and in case you were wondering, Timbaland wasn’t watching. During the telecast of the already controversial film, the producer – who famously helped craft the singer’s One In A Million sound – posted a message on his Instagram account regarding the film. Accompanied with a photo of the movie’s promotional poster, Timbo left the following caption: Hope yall not watching this!!!!!!!!

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B did not include the involvement of Timbaland or Missy Elliott, who also famously worked with the singer. Aaliyah’s family – who owns the rights to her recordings – were also not behind the making of the film, and therefore refused to include her music.
