Grammy winning producer, Timbaland, recently sat down with Revolt TV to discuss everything from Nas, to Drake, to the legacy of Aaliyah. When asked about Drake and Chris Brown's recent attempts at their Aaliyah records, Timbaland responded with:
"In music, people always say, 'I'ma do a song with Aaliyah.' It will never work. Chris Brown got a record; it won't work. Drake could do a record with Aaliyah; it ain't going to work. Aaliyah music only work with its soulmate, which is me. That's why when Drake did 'Started From The Bottom,' it was a totally different sound and Drake told me, 'I had to really battle with myself. I want to be the first person to change.' So when he said that, it's like, you're going to be around for a long time. I talked to big brother Jay[-Z] and said, 'Yo, we gotta embrace this young soldier. You got to embrace this guy. You got to put our arm around him and really like, try to add to the bloodline.'"
