It is well known that she wrote endless letters throughout high school to her musical heroes, Michael and Janet Jackson, Diana Ross, even the British pop band Five Star, begging to be rescued. She did the same sort of thing a few years later, only this time the letters were sent out with demo tapes that she had made with her neighbour and friend, Timbaland, now one of the most exciting producers in the industry.
Faith Evans, the R 'n' B singer who is part of Puff Daddy's inner circlewas an early recipient; she spread the word about the duo's talent.

When you listen to Under Construction you realise that it has been a very long time since you last heard a truly sexy record. And yet, not once does the record sound coarse, and never does Elliott, for all her spiked g-strings and inflatable suits, sound like she is striking a pose.
