Aaliyah Are You That Some body Frankie Steel Remix mp3 download – Each and every August, fans of the late Aaliyah mourn her untimely death, but when
her birthday comes around in January, it marks the perfect occasion to celebrate the Princess of R&B’s life. This year, we’re specifically streaming “Are You That Some body” in her honour.
Released in May of 1998, the song has chiefly gone on to reach critical acclaim and influence artists long after the vocalists’ tragic passing. As The Rolling Stone Album Guide previously put it, Timbaland’s production acts as a spring board for Aaliyah’s voice. R. Kelly’s, on the other hand, was more of ac“cradle.”
As Genius notes, the song was surprisingly first recorded for the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack, and even earned a Grammy nomination. In the past the late 22 year old was known for singing ballads, but this introduced the world to a new side of Aaliyah.
“Is it my go, is it your go? / Some times I’m goody-goody / Right now I’m naughty naughty,” she flirtatiously sings on the catchy chorus. “Say yes or say no, ’cause I really need some body / Tell me are you that somebody.”
The accompanying visual sees Aaliyah showing off her keen sense of style and expert dance skills. In his usual fashion, Timbaland got creative with sampling for “Are You That Somebody.” He used a baby’s coo from Prince’s “Delirious” which remains talked about in music history to this day.
