For fans, Timbaland and Aaliyah were like a collaborative match made in heaven; everything they touched turned to gold. From memorable hits like “Hot Like Fire,” and “Four Page Letter” to “One in A Million” and “Are You That Somebody,” Aaliyah and Timbo always managed to bring music to life in the most creative ways. However, many fans may not know there was much more to the story and there’s probably a legitimate reason why it was so easy for Timbaland’s creative juices to flow when working with Aaliyah. For Tim, Aaliyah really was “that somebody.”

She Impacted His Life:

Years after Aaliyah’s untimely death, Timbaland publicly revealed how he was madly in love with Aaliyah and how his love for her impacted his life.

“When I first met Aaliyah… I was in love with her. I said, ‘She (is) just a baby, I’m old’. I said to myself, ‘I’m just gonna be her brother’. Oh man, I was fightin’, I was fightin’ a lot – a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.”

Timbaland Fell Into A Decade-Long Deep Depression After Aaliyah’s Death:

Like most family members, friends, and fans of the singer, Timbaland was absolutely devastated when Aaliyah died. But Tim’s devastation lasted far longer and deeper than most…he recently revealed that he fell into a deep depression following Aaliyah’s deadly plane crash that lasted well over a decade. Years after Aaliyah’s death, Timbaland admits that he’s just getting to a point where he’s coming to terms with the passing of the woman he was extremely in love with until her dying day.
