The 50 Best Timbaland Beats

34. Nas f/ Aaliyah "You Won't See Me Tonight" (1999)

Album: I Am...
Label: Columbia

Nas and Aaliyah squared off on "You Won't See Me Tonight", the third single off Nasir's woefully underrated 1999 album I Am... album. Tim's track is a sparse affair, all plucked strings, bass and restless drums until the chorus hits, and he brings in a synth as airy as Aaliyah's coolly unimpressed vocal about leaving a selfish lover. It's a crime that this one didn't crack the Hot 100.
