Timbaland and Missy Elliott (1996)
How do you even begin to describe the influence of Timbaland and Missy Elliott? Their claim-to-fame production on Aaliyah’s sophomore album One in a Million only scratched the surface of what the duo was capable of. They literally switched the sound of urban music with Timbo’s trademark double snare beats and Missy’s incomparable pen game. From the Superfriends Clique to their pop takeover with Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, Tim and Missy will always be held to a certain degree of praise when considering all those timeless cuts they collaboratively brought to life.
