Correction on Cheri Dennis "Act Like You Know"

I'm not sure who complies the writing credits over at Bad Boy but they really need to get their information accurate before they create the liner notes for Bad Boy's artists. First it was Danity Kane and now it's Cheri Dennis. Despite what the liner notes read, the Timbaland produced track "Act Like You Know" is actually written by Walter Milsap and Candice Nelson. Check the "ohh"s that's all Candice.

Put on your headphones and really listen to that voice sample throughout the track. There's a tail end to it making it sound almost like some sort of African chant. I've been on the lookout for the sample since I first heard it. I love the track, Tim brought back the old sound with it. The reason? It was recorded over 3 years ago and was originally meant for Jennifer Lopez who passed on it.

Just in case you didn't know, despite only 1 J.Lo/Timbaland track ever released ("He'll Be Back" yes with Danja's assistance), Timbo (and Walter and Candice) actually made 3 other tracks for her that were never released:

I Can Get Him Back
In My Life
Make It Pop

Will we ever hear those unreleased tracks? I highly doubt it but you never know if they may pop up in a reformatted form for a different artist.


  1. no wonder jen passed on it.... i was never really feeling it. and cheri dennis kinda sucks...

  2. The beat is nice just wished it had a lil more to it and was longer.

  3. Y'know, that might have something to do with the fact that Danja is putting out a lot more than Timbaland right now.

    Just throwing it out there.

  4. thanks big-a!
    lmao! i had no idea ppl didnt agree with me...
    btw i deff LOVE tim!!!
    i think everyone would say they love tim as well. he's deff 100x better than danja!
    but... i think that in 5-10 danja will be up there at tims level. he has to with all this training from the best!

  5. It will never happen. That fool will never be on Timbaland's level. Timbo Da King!!!!!!!!
