Timbaland Says God Helped Him Discover Tink
Tink is quickly gaining steam in the industry. The 19-year old artist has heavyweight producer Timbaland gushing over her artistry. The youngster has already drawn comparisons to the likes of Lauryn Hill and has intrigued many because of her hybrid capabilities. During his stop at Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Timbaland gloated about his newest artist and credited God for his prized discovery.
"God just put her into my lap," says Timbo. Then, Timbo spoke about hearing her music after meeting up with Da Internz. He said he was so blown away by her talent, that he quickly reached out in hopes of working with her. Talk about special delivery from the man upstairs.
"At the time, he [God] knew what I needed. In my life, I was looking like I didn't know if I wanted to do music because there's nothing out here to do. So she was music and she saved my life. She got me looking like this, because she's so young and I felt like she got it. Like you can't believe somebody 19 got it. You know what I'm saying? We don't see that no more. The last person we saw was like Drake. He's like the real deal."
Very bold words coming from one of the best to do it. If you haven't, check out the original version of Rick Ross' "Movin Bass" featuring the young artist. Let's just say she flexed hard on it.
