„Miss You“ is a song by American recording artist Aaliyah. Written by Johnta Austin, Ginuwine and Teddy Bishop in 1998 and initially recorded in the Fall of 1999 for her self-titled third studio album (2001), the track remained unreleased. Instead, it was later included on the posthumously released compilation album, I Care 4 U (2002), serving as it’s leading single during the last quarter of 2002.
The ballad received positive reviews from contemporary music critics and achieved a strong charting throughout Europe and other worldwide regions, reaching the top twenty in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
On the US Billboard charts, the song peaked on top of the Hot RnB/Hip-Hop Songs chart and reached number three on the Hot 100, becoming Aaliyah’s highest-charting single after her 2000 number-one hit „Try Again“ featuring Timbaland.
„Miss You“ was originally crafted for Ginuwine’s second studio album 100% Ginuwine (1999). It was fall of 1999, and while Aaliyah was recording tracks for self-titled third album (2001) in the Manhattan Center Studios, she requested Austin and Bishop to play her a couple of tracks they had produced with other artists, including „I Miss You“ for which Ginuwine had already lent his vocals.
Bishop later commented, „She was like, ‚I want to cut this record‘ […] She got on the phone, called him and said ‚Hey I know you cut this record already, but I would love to cut it‘.“ Ginuwine, who was a part writer on the song, allowed her to cut her own version of it and the same night, Aaliyah re-recorded the whole track. Though she reportedly wanted to put the song out herself, Blackground Records, her label, felt the song was no „smash record“ and thus, the song was left unused until her death in August 2001.
