The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

36. Timbaland & Magoo "Indian Flute" (2003)

Album: Under Construction, Part II
Label: Blackground, Universal


Timbaland and Magoo's third album Under Construction 2 continued with the envelope-pushing songcraft of Missy Elliott's first volume, especially on songs like "Indian Flute", a collision of hip-hop and international music. Technically "Indian Flute" is a misnomer: the flute sample that anchors the track is actually a bit of South American cumbia music, but the call and response between Tim and Magoo and vocalist Raje Shwari, whose voice is manipulated to sound like a sample, gave "Indian Flute" a Bollywood feel.
