Missy Elliott ‘Fun facts brighten up our day every time.
Earlier this year, the icon revealed it, and the Tweet song “Oops (Oh My)” wasn’t really about masturbation, which shocked fans through and through. Now, in a new revelation, she has given music lovers a little preview of the late Aaliyah’s “4-page letter”.
Fans of the Fallen Angel know that at the start of the track, Aaliyah can be heard telling the engineer to turn up the music until she is happy with the volume. While we’ve always assumed this moment was intentional, it turns out Baby Girl was impersonating Missy, who was really asking for the song’s volume to be turned up. Aaliyah thought she was supposed to repeat what she heard in the demo.
“When Aaliyah kept telling the producer to turn up his music,” tweeted one fan, to which Missy replied: “Fun fact, When I was in the booth singing this my sound engineer had the music too low so I told her to come up but Aaliyah thought I wanted to do it so she sang it like I did done on the demo. But it was a mistake but she loved it so we kept it that way.

After what felt like a lifetime where Aaliyah’s music catalog was not available on streaming services, Blackground Records began releasing their critically acclaimed discography this year. More info on the label finally blessing the fans HERE, in case you missed it. May Baby Girl rest in peace.
