Timbaland and Missy Elliott are kind of a dream team, having put their spastic, edgy stamp on artists like Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child. So when Demi Lovato tweeted on Monday night that she was hitting the studio with them, her fans responded with delight that the “Skyscraper” singer was working with the two masterminds on her September release.
“@ddlovato Nice meeting u at the studio tonight! I know ya gonna do ya thang! Working the late hrs! Lol Have fun!” Missy tweeted after the late night jam fest, before taking some questions from fans about what it was like working with the singer.
“@DaRealsebastian she cool peeps! Like we go way bk! Lol! Sweet person! Very talented! Thanks 4 introducing us G!” she told one fan. She also shared, “@ddlovatofan55 Thank u LOVATICS! I C yall *BIGHUGS* 2 all yall!” And had this nugget, “@ddlovatofan55 yes she is very talented. And cool peeps!”
Timbaland was equally enchanted by the singer and what she brought to the session, even sharing that the pair had recorded vocals for the track. “4 this demi and timbo duet yall really need 2 thank my brother @darealsebastian and @byrd757 4 makin this happen. now lets make history,” he wrote on Twitter. “yo @ddlovato you killed dat song i gave u. i just pick 2 more for you from one of the producer out my camp @wizz_dumb for u to do 2morrow.”
So, how did the song turn out?
Tim added, “i cant lie im listenin back to the song again that @ddlovato just did yall were rite gurl got talent.”
Demi has already shared that she wants to go for a more urban sound, so hooking up with two legendary producers like Tim and Missy seems appropriate.
What do you think of the collaboration?
