Timbaland recently posted a photo of Aaliyah on his Instagram, saying that he is often asked if he has any never-before-heard music from the cherished late singer. In the caption, he confirmed that he does have unreleased tracks from Baby Girl and promises a sneak peek is on its way.

Timbaland first worked with Aaliyah when he and Missy Elliot co-produced most of her second album, One in a Million, and the three became close friends and frequent collaborators. This year, Timbaland produced a remake of the album’s title track for rising singer and rapper, Tink. The original tune, was at the top of the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for eight weeks in 1996 t0 1997, reports Billboard.
