The collaboration resulted in Sista sealing a deal with record producer De Vante Swing. Elliott did not leave Mosley behind; she bagged him and their friend Barcliff along.In the big city, Mosley was signed to Swing Mob, the same label that took Elliott in.Suddenly everybody wants to work with the hottest producer in town.Def Jam Recording artist Fabolous demanded him to give a hand on his single "Make Me Better", Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke was desperate for his assistance and even Madonna trusted him to guide her R&B passion.His name soon traveled to Aaliyah who immediately asked him to collaborate in her album "One in a Million".Like his work with Ginuwine, Timbaland put this project on top of the game.His birth town Norfolk, Virginia had united the March 10, 1971 born producer with Melissa Arnette Elliott or better known as Missy Elliott and Melvin Barcliff aka Magoo.
Timbaland then devoted some time for his group with Barcliff named Timbaland and Magoo.It was his best chart topping effort in his entire solo career. Timbaland did not come out "production wise" out of sudden since he had stayed in the business actually long enough to know every nook and corner.The same fate, only better, happened to his first single "Give It to Me" featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake that absorbed 148,000 digital downloads and smashed the #1 slot in Billboard 100. His journey in the music industry started in early 1990s when he became acquainted with two persons that will walk by his side throughout the entire career.The lyric video for ' Something Bout You' hit a million views this week!Big thanks to everyone involved and all the fans for watching!
