According to a Static Major in an interview for

Nevertheless, she somewhen agreed to record it. In a behind-the-scenes video featuring Timbaland, he reveals that the vocal was recorded in a couple of hours after a bear witness and that it was nigh scrapped.[2]

“Are You That Somebody?” was recorded at the Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and, according to engineer Jimmy Douglass, the recording session for the song was “a soup-to-nuts session”, pregnant that the entire song was recorded and mixed in 1 session.[3]
The group worked on the vocal from 11:00 p.thou. to 9:00 a.m. and the last portions that were added to the song were the baby noises and Timbaland’south ad-libs.[3]

Music and lyrics

[edit]

[4]
[five]
[6]
Journalist Larry Motion picture from
Billboard, felt that Aaliyah had returned to her Funk/Hip hop roots on the tape.[seven]
In addition, the song also has a Neotango rhythm with Aaliyah displaying “coy vocals”.[eight]
Its product features a diverseness of sounds, such as corybantic staccato guitars, beatboxing, and drum and bass courtesy of drum programming.[nine]
Motion picture described the guitar riff equally, “jiggly”, and that it gives “the rail the experience good vibe of a ’70s-era throw downwards”.[7]
Other sounds that are utilized within the instrumental is a sample of a baby crying and laughing, taken from producer Jac Holzman’s 1964 track “Happy Baby” from
Accurate Audio Effects Book 8.[9]
[x]
On “Are Yous That Somebody?” Aaliyah has a “no-nonsense commitment, along with popping syncopation, a playfully funky bassline and that brilliantly bizarre babe chirp”.[11]

Lyrically, “Are You That Somebody?” is well-nigh “a late-night rendezvous with a special someone that needed to be kept on the hush”.[12]
On the song, Aaliyah issues a “will you still love me tomorrow sentiment”.[13]
Her, “sweet simply street” persona is in full effect, every bit she declares: “Sometimes I’m goody-goody / Correct now I’m naughty naughty.” There’southward likewise a sense of longing in the appearance of the song’s title (“‘Crusade I really need somebody / Tell me are yous that somebody”) and in the way Aaliyah performed information technology, stretching out the syllables to the bespeak of desperation and so keeping up with the beat with “hurried, jumbled phrasings”.[14]

Complex
felt that “Are Y’all That Somebody?” perfectly captured multiple traits found on Aaliyah’south first two albums.[16]
According to Scott, “Aaliyah’s oeuvre was an practise in self-awareness. Her first two albums carefully toed the line between boyhood and adulthood, displaying a woman exploring the terrain of dearest, trust, and lust; one who exuded a playful innocence while hinting at a more sultry side. Her crowning achievement, a collaboration between her, Timbaland, and Static Major, ‘Are You lot That Somebody,’ would capture all of that perfectly”.[16]
Quentin B. Huff from
PopMatters
feels that the song “is just too good to be relegated to soundtrack condition”. He connected praising the song by saying: “It’due south a fantastic runway, with a stomping rhythm alternatingly absolute by the strangest bundle of dissonance. It sounds like someone shaking die or smashing their knuckles or twisting a Rubik’southward Cube really fast — I can never decide which”.[14]
In 2021,
Billboard
and
Complex
ranked the song at number two and number i, respectively, on their lists of the greatest Aaliyah songs.[17]
[18]
