Few people were hurt as much as Missy Elliott, Timbaland, and Ginuwine. They were the ones who were the closest to Aaliyah, musically, along with the late Static Major. Already pushing her Miss E… So Addictive album.
The song, “Take Away,” was already on the album, featuring Ginuwine, but she dedicated it to Aaliyah. Additional vocals came from Tweet, who would take over in 2002. Now, the song is the Wednesday Throwback, just showing the progression.
