One in a Million" is a song by American singer Aaliyah from her second studio album of the same name. The song was written by both Missy Elliot and Timbaland with the latter producing the song. Musically the song is an R&B club ballad with trip hop and drum and bass influences. Lyrically the song is about Aaliyah professing her love for a guy that she identifies as being "One In a Million". The song was released as the albums third single by Blackground and Atlantic records on December 10, 1996.
Track 3 in Aaliyah’s second studio album also entitled One in a million. The song was considered an atypical R&B song at the time due to its almost drum-n-bass style beats. It was one of the early examples of Timbaland’s drum-skitter-style of programming. In a 2015 interview with Billboard, Missy Elliott recalled the song’s release saying, When we did ‘One in a Million,’ they wouldn’t play it at first because they said it was off-the rhythm, the melody, everything. The song reached on the R&B charts for 6 weeks.

Aaliyah's second album doesn't necessarily prove that she is indeed One in a Million, but it does showcase more depth and talent than her acclaimed debut. That's not only due to the greater variety of material on One in a Million, or to the way that her producers (Vincent Herbert, Jermaine Dupri, and many others) immaculately produce each track, but it is also due to the fact that Aaliyah's singing is smoother, more seductive, and stronger than before.
