It was the summer of ‘98, and Doctor Doolittle smashed the box office. Timbaland, Missy, Ginuwine, & Aaliyah were THE hottest artists out, and all had chart topping hits. It was only right for Aaliyah & Timbaland to serve up an offering to the soundtrack of the movie, and “Are You That Somebody?” was born. Written by the late songwriter, and Timbaland creative partner, Static Major, the song went on to spend numerous weeks at the top of Billboard charts worldwide, and to this day is highly regarded as a great moment for R&B. Who can forget the baby coos? Aaliyah‘s timeless beauty & bone straight hair? The ballroom scene? Mark Gerard directed this classic video, so take a walk down memory lane & comment!
