In 2014, women dominated music more than ever by scoring #1 hits in Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop. Super Producer Timbaland has a long history of #1 hits with notable female superstars in music such as Madonna, Keri Hilson, Nelly Furtado, Missy Elliot and Aaliyah. With Mosley Music Group’s newest female additions, Tink & V Bozeman, Timbaland proves once again that he has an eye for incredible and memorable female talent.
Chicago’s Tink had been making a name for herself in the local Chicago hip hop scene with the release of several mixtape projects in 2014. At just 19 years old, Tink is proven to be an artist that is well beyond her years. Her ability to spit hard hitting lyrics and sing soulful and catchy melodies has put her at the top of the list for Artist to Watch for 2015. V. Bozeman is a powerful voice with a powerful message. In 2014, she made a major footprint with her song and bold video “Race Jones”. Born and raised in South Central, LA, V. Bozeman has been singing since she could remember. Along with Tink, Timbaland took notice of V. Bozeman’s remarkable talent and signed both ladies to his Mosley Music Group imprint.
Taking a look back at Timbaland’s history of hit-making, who can forget hits such as One In A Million, Get Your Freak On, 4 Minutes, Are You That Somebody?, Promiscuous, Try Again or Hot Boyz. All of these songs have been credited to be some of Timbaland’s biggest hits, having spent weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts. After the release of Aaliyah’s One In A Million album in 1996 (produced mainly by Timbaland and Missy Elliot), Timbaland and Missy Elliot have since become the most sought after producers in the music industry, having produced hits for artist in Hip Hop, R&B and even Rock music. With fellow Virginia native Missy Elliot by his side, it’s safe to say that Timbaland and the timeless music that he has created with women of all musical genres, has helped shaped the sound that would become popular music.
