"Here We Come" is a song American producer/rapper Timbaland. It features frequent collaborators Missy Elliott and Magoo and serves as the lead single for Timbaland's solo debut album, Tim's Bio: Life from da Bassment (1998). The song also features background vocals by Playa and Darryl Pearson. While the song charted and was released via radio airplay on November 17, 1998, it was not granted a physical release in the United States until March 2, 1999;[1] and in October 5, 1999 for Germany.[2]

The song utilizes the melody from the theme song of the 1967 Spider-Man TV series.

Music video[edit]

The music video premiered on MTV2 in mid-October 1998.[3] Like the song's concept and interpolation, the video follows a synopsis loosely based on the early Spider-Man comic series. The latter of the video features cameo appearances by Timbaland and Missy Elliott's close friends Ginuwine and Aaliyah. The video was directed by Francis Lawrence.
