Timbaland's first full credit production work was in 1996 on Ginuwine...the Bachelor for R&B singer Ginuwine. After further work on Aaliyah's 1996 album One in a Million and Missy Elliott's 1997 album Supa Dupa Fly, Timbaland became a prominent producer for R&B and hip-hop artists.

His work ranges from Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Missy Elliott, as well as other R&B artists of the mid-90's, to Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Ludacris, and other hip-hop artists of the early and mid-2000s. In 2006 he produced Justin Timberlake's album FutureSex/LoveSounds, which sold over 10 million copies worldwide and spawned hits such as "SexyBack", "My Love" and "What Goes Around... Comes Around". In 2006 he produced Nelly Furtado's Loose, which also sold 10 million copies worldwide and had hits such as "Promiscuous", "Maneater", and "Say It Right".
