In 2002 the successful duo of Missy Elliott and Timbaland presented Tweet, a soulful vocalist with hip-hop savvy and unrestrained sexuality. Like Sparxxx’s debut album, Tweet’s debut, Southern Hummingbird, featured production by Timbaland and vocals by Elliott, most notably on the lead single, “Oops (Oh My).” The single became an overnight hit, and a remix for the song featuring Fabolous garnered even more spins on urban radio, helping her cross over to the rap audience and setting the stage for her album’s awaited release date. Before debuting with “Oops (Oh My),” Tweet had appeared alongside Elliott on “Take Away” (a single also featuring Ginuwine from Miss E…So Addictive) and “X” (an album track from Ja Rule’s Pain Is Love). It’s Me Again followed in 2005. ~ Jason Birchmeier
