Missy Elliot explains the introduction to Aaliyah’s song “4 Page Letter”
Aaliyah’s “4 Page Letter” from her 1996 album One in a million, was a huge hit in 1997. Missy Elliot and Timbaland co-wrote the track – and now Missy is revealing a nice detail about the song.
At the start of the song, we hear Aaliyah say, “Turn my music,” Missy explained on Twitter, “When I was in the booth singing this my sound engineer had the music too low so I told her to come up but Aaliyah thought I wanted to do it so she sang it like I did. made on the demo but that was a mistake. But she loved it, so we kept it that way. “
She also added, “And since Babygirl liked the mistake, I told engineer Jimmy to keep increasing the music on the track every time she said it would make sense to listeners so that you didn’t think we were crazy. this sketch is pretty darn close to what happened.
