It’s been nearly 15 years since R&B songstress Aaliyah tragically lost her life in an unfortunate plane accident, and now her go-to producer and close friend is finding yet another way to keep her memory alive.

Super-producer Timbaland has recently been preparing for the release of his upcoming full-length project Textbook Timbo, which is due out towards the top of next year, and he gave fans a taste of what to expect when he sent out this tweet that included a link to his new mixtape King Stays King on Christmas Day.


In addition to 11 new tracks from Timbaland, the feature-heavy project includes appearances from the likes of Migos, Rich Homie Quan and 2 Chainz, to name a few. However, the clear stand out of the bunch is the mixtape’s second track “Shakin,” which features none other than Baby Girl herself.

Take a listen to “Shakin” featuring Aaliyah below.
