Back in the 90s, Timbaland was best recognized by his work on the boards with Missy Elliot and Aaliyah, with hits like “One In A Million” and tracks off of Elliot’s popular Under Construction album. Since the death of the late “Are You That Somebody” songstress, critics and music lovers alike were curious about the unfinished and unreleased tracks both Timbaland and Aaliyah made together. Well, you won’t have to wonder anymore.
The Grammy-award winning beat maker announced he’ll release a free 18-track mixtape on Christmas Day, Merry Christmas! The tape will feature a variety of artist from Tink, Migos, Aaliyah, Mila J, Just Blaze and more.
With the combination of unparalleled beats and talented artistry, “King Stays King” can be a very successful project. However, mixtapes has proven to be the appetizer for the main course. Timbaland is also set to release a full length album in 2016 called Textbook Timbo.
