Complex Names The Top 25 Timbaland Songs

In honor of Timbaland and his induction into the VHI Hip Hop Hall of Fame, Complex Magazine gave it's top 25 Timbaland tracks of all time. They are:

25. Cee Lo "I'll Be Around" (anyone ever find the sample?)
24. SWV "Can We" (Tim has said in the past this is his favorite beat)
23. Young Jeezy "3 A.M."
22. Missy Elliott "Hot Boyz" (how many versions do you have of this track?)
21. Ginuwine "What's So Different?"
20. Aaliyah "We Need A Resolution"
19. Fabolous "Make Me Better"
18. Bubba Sparxxx "Deliverence"
17. The Game "Put You On The Game"
16. Playa "Cheers 2 U"
15. Nelly Furtado "Promiscuous"
14. Timbaland & Magoo "Luv 2 Luve U (Remix)"
13. Tweet "Oops (Oh My)"
12. Aaliyah "Try Again"
11. Nicole Wray "Make It Hot"
10. Justin Timberlake "My Love"
9. Petey Pablo "Raise Up"
8. Jay-Z "Jigga What, Jigga Who (Originator 99)"
7. Aaliyah "One In A Million"
6. Missy Elliott "Get UR Freak On"
5. Justin Timberlake "Cry Me A Rivr"
4. Ginuwine "Pony"
3. Jay-Z "Big Pimpin"
2. Missy Elliott "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)"
1. Aaliyah "Are You That Somebody?"

No Missy "Wake Up"? No Bubba "Take A Load Off"? No Brandy at all? No Mocha?

Of course no one's top 25 list everyone is going to agree with but this list should be titled the top 25 commercial singles produced by Timbaland. Makes me wonder if the writers for Complex have listened to anything else by him.

What's your top 25? Ok top 5?


  1. Yeah there's a few that didn't get included that would have made quite a few peoples lists

    Dirt off your shoulder
    Comin round

  2. I agree with alot on that list but perhaps in different order. Bubba's "Ugly" should have been on there, "Dirt of Your Shoulder", "Ice Box", "Come As You Are","Cop That Disc", "Bounce" off SV, "Dont Stop The Music" - Playa, "Love Me" from Indecent Proposal, "They'll Never Play Me" (underrated), "Dead Wrong" (underrated), "I'm So Fly", etc.

  3. Impossible choice for top 25 let alone top 5! lol

    Just to throw a few more on there, "Headsprung", "Apple Cobbler", "More Than Woman", "When Doves Cry", "Jump Off", "Put It Down" - Redman, "Can I Take You Home"

  4. my top5
    5.Timbaland&Magoo/We At It Again
    4.Ms.Jade/Ching Ching
    3.Jay-Z/Is That Yo Bitch
    2.Aaliyah/One In A Million
    1.Missy/Beep Me 911

    It is difficult to choose 5

  5. @JBoogie...

    glad to see someone else is giving "I Told Yall" props. One of my fave Tim tracks--grimy.

  6. Ok narrowed it down to Top 5:

    5. We At It Again - Timbaland & Magoo
    4. I'm Really Hot - Missy
    3. Dead Wrong - Ms Jade Ft. Nate Dogg
    2. Ugly - Bubba Sparxxx
    1. We Need a Resolution - Aaliyah

  7. I can't knock them for trying but I guess they picked from the ones "common folk" would know about...not everyone who checks out is an uber Tim fan so I guess that was their logic. @ Bilza - They'll Never Play Me is not a Timbaland production. It's produced by Just's a nice bite, though. Another nice Tim bite by Just Blaze is this -

  8. lol I've been told all this time it was Timbo's damn! Thanks.
