Over the weekend, super-producer Timbaland took to social media to share a new track that he produced where he sampled the late Whitney Houston’s classic single ” I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”

In the video that the producer posted, Timbaland was in a pink-hued illuminated studio. He said, “This one right here is special,” before playing the track.
