Are You That Somebody?" is a Grammy nominated single performed by American singer Aaliyah, recorded for the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack. The song was written and composed by Static Major, who also sang backing vocals, and Timbaland, who, in addition to writing the song, produced and performed a guest rap for it. The song was sent to . pop radio stations on September 29, 1998 (see 1998 in music).

Is it my go, is it your go Sometimes I'm goody-goody Right now I'm bout naughty naughty Cause I really need somebody Tell me are you that somebody. As The Rolling Stone Album Guide notes, Timbaland’s innovative beats challenged Aaliyah rather than cradling her voice as R. Kelly’s did. With a blooming new personality infused into her music accompanied by entirely committed vocals, it is not difficult to see why the release of this hit remains one of ‘90s’ R&B’s most astounding moments, or how it inspired artists such as Beyoncé

Are You That Somebody?. Are You That Somebody?" was in the midst of its chart run when Billboard changed its policy to allow airplay-only singles to chart on the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts. It climbed to number four on the Hot 100 Airplay chart and number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. In New Zealand, it jumped from number forty-three to number one; the song with biggest jump to number-one of that year.

Aaliyah was 19 when this was released in 1998, but she was already a seasoned pro: her first album, Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, was issued in 1994. A key component to this song is the baby giggling and cooing in the background. You can hear the influence on the early Maroon 5 track "Not Coming Home," which borrows many elements from "Are You That Somebody?" More songs from Aaliyah. More songs produced by Timbaland.

Is it my go, is it your go Sometimes I'm goody-goody Right now I'm bout naughty naughty 'Cause I really need somebody Tell me are you that somebody. You can't tell nobody I'm talkin' 'bout nobody Boy I gotta watch my back 'Cause I'm not just anybody. Lyrics submitted by SongMeanings. Are You That Somebody" as written by Timothy Mosley Stephen Garrett.

GWEZJ
the baby crying is a sample extracted from the 1986 hit of ’Regina (2) - Baby Love’.

Balhala
Drop the acappella -4% and ride it on top of any 132bpm ghetto or electro tracks.

Nuliax
The ultimate Timbaland production?
