Timbaland Reveals Aaliyah Visited Him in Dream, Says Tink is the “One”

timbaland

Timbaland played hit after hit last night during his SXSW performance, but the biggest highlight comes from his statement of Aaliyah visiting him in a dream. It happened right after he brought out his rising protege rapper Tink to play a few songs including Aaliyah’s “One in a Million.”

After he stated, “I don’t touch any of my sister’s records. I don’t touch Baby Girl’s records—you know that’s Aaliyah. Then he went on to say, “She spoke to me in my sleep and said, ‘She’s [Tink] the one.’”

Watch the video below.

“She’s the one.” #FADERFORTConverse

This might sound familiar, because it is. Kanye West had a similar dream recently, but including his mother Donda West who spoke to him while writing “Only One.”
