"Try Again" is a Grammy-nominated single by American singer Aaliyah. The song went #1 on the Billboard charts, received favorable reviews, and it is one of her most successful songs to date. The song was written by Static Major and Tim Mosley (Timbaland) and produced by Tim Mosley. It was the second single released from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack and written for the motion picture of the same name. The single was released to radio while "I Don't Wanna" was still at radio, "Try Again" had peaked by the time "I Don't Wanna" was phased out. "Try Again" was one of her most successful songs in both the American charts and the international charts. It was the first song ever to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 based solely on the strength of its radio airplay. The song was listed 10th on The Village Voice's 2000 Pazz & Jop critics' poll. In November 2002, NME magazine ranked "Try Again" # 93 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singles of All Time. In 2003 German metal band Knorkator covered "Try Again" for their album Ich hasse Musik, turning the piece into a crushing orchestral industrial metal piece. In an issue of Vibe magazine, it was revealed that Try Again along with Are You That Somebody were not Aaliyah's favorite songs, but recorded because of Static Major. "Try Again" was nominated in 43rd Grammy Awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and two Soul Train awards for Best R&B/Soul Single and R&B/Soul or Rap Music Video. "Try Again" won two MTV awards for Best Female Video and Best Video from a Film.

Try Again - Aaliyah

(Timbaland)
It"s been a long time
We shouldn"t have left you
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
Step to, step to
Freaky-freaky
It"s been a long time
We shouldn"t have left you
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
Step to, step to
Freaky-freaky, baby girl uh

(Aaliyah)
What would you do?
To get to me
What would you say?
To have your way
Would you give up?
Or try again
If I hesitated
To let you in
Now would you be yourself
Or play your role
Tell all the boys
Or keep it low
If I saw no
Would you turn away?
Or play me off
Or would you stay, oh, oh

And if at first you don"t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)

(Aaliyah)
I"m in to you
You into me
But I can"t let it go
So easily
Not till I see
Whether this could be
Could be eternally
Or just a week
Our chemistry
Is off the chain
It"s perfect now
But will it change?
This ain"t a yes
This ain"t a no
Just do your thing
We"ll see how it go, oh, oh

And if at first you don"t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)

(Aaliyah)
See you don"t wanna throw it all away
I might be shy on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
I said you don"t wanna throw it all away
I might be buggin" on the first date
What about the next date?
Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

And if at first you don"t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)

And if at first you don"t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)

(Aaliyah)
If at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again (and again)

(Timbaland)
Check it, uh
It"s been a long time
We shouldn"t have left you
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
Step to, step to
Freaky-freaky
It"s been a long time
We shouldn"t have left you
Without a dope beat to step to
Step to, step to, step to
Step to, step to
Freaky-freaky

And if at first you don"t succeed
Then dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don"t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (and again)
