The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

39. Tweet "Oops (Oh My)" (2002)

Album: Southern Hummingbird
Label: Goldmind/Elektra

Tweet was an alumni member of Jodeci member DeVante Swing's Swing Mob collective whose aspirations as a singer had hit a wall by the late '90s, when out of the blue she received a call from Missy Elliott about recording some vocals for a song. She quickly rekindled working relationships with Missy and also Timbaland, who provided production on a handful of cuts on her 2002 solo debut Southern Hummingbird, most memorably "Oops (Oh My)", a story song about losing control to desire and consummating the feeling with a little self-love. The track paired a tribal pattern of rim shots and flat kicks with a melody pieced together out of cooing women's voices.
