Producer Timbaland recently teased plans to release previously unheard Aaliyah music.

Posting a picture of the late R&B singer to Instagram, the producer stated that a “sneak peek” of the music is on the way.

“People ask me all the time do I have any babegirl music we haven’t heard,” wrote the producer. “Well the answer is YES.”

Meanwhile, Janet Jackson recently revealed the video for new song ‘No Sleeep’ with a new verse from rapper J Cole. The track was produced by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and comes ahead of a new, as yet untitled, album later this year. The record will be her first full length release since 2008.

Jackson’s 11th studio album is expected to be released in the autumn in a partnership between BMG and her own label Rhythm Nation. Watch the new video here.
