Released: April 2001

Timbaland always saved his best beats for his ‘baby girl’ and ‘…Resolution’ was no exception. On her final, self-titled album this was the haunting lead single; a song about questioning a relationship's compromise when it seems pointless (someone would always come off worse off). The whole thing was piqued by an underwater, Egyptian-riff that gave the song a disorientating, three-dimensional atmosphere, as if the whole crisis was a bad dream and the ‘resolution’ was to be found by waking up. Timbaland would spend the following decade attempting to re-capture a moment as innovative as this. (PE)
