Missy Elliott, who produced the song alongside Timbaland, responded on Twitter and told fans,
“Funfact when I was in the booth singing this my engineer had the music to low so I was telling him to turn it up but Aaliyah thought I meant to do it so she sung it like i did on the demo but it was a mistake but she loved it so we kept it like that”
The 50-year-old rapper continued to give more details and said,
