Released one week ago, Rick Ross and Jay Z’s latest tandem, “Movin’ Bass” premiered. This latest collision happened on a jolting Timbaland beat. However, this week suggests that the high-profile union actually began as a beat and song intended for a much lesser-known artist: Tink.

Tink is Timbo’s latest protege, and an artist on his Mosley Music Group. The Chicago, Illinois rapper/singer made some waves when it was learned that she’s on the Andre 3000 x Timbaland track. Sadly, when that snippet premiered, Heads initially believed it was Jhene Aiko on the track, robbing some of Tink’s deserved shine. Now hear this original version of “Movin’ Bass,” and see if Tink would have potentially had her first hit.


Is this part of paying dues, or was Tink “tinkered” with?
