After word hit the ‘net that Drake is to reportedly executive produce an posthumous Aaliyah album, producer, Noah “40″ Shebib, posts a song by the later singer featuring Drizzy.
Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001), who performed under the mononym Aaliyah was an American recording artist, actress and model. She was born inBrooklyn, New York, and was raised in Detroit. On August 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight others were killed in an airplane crash in The Bahamas after filming the music video for the single “Rock the Boat“. Aaliyah is estimated to have sold 24 to 32 million albums worldwide. She has been credited for helping redefinecontemporary R&B and hip hop, earning her the nicknames ”Princess of R&B” and “Queen of Urban Pop“.
The artwork of “Enough Said,” as MissInfo.tv pointed out, has the logo of both Drake’s October Very Own entity and Blackground Records who’s first signee was Aaliyah and reportedly still represent her past and posthumous work.
On Wednesday (Aug. 1), a source told HipHopDX that Drake will be at the helm of an upcoming posthumous project while Timbaland, long time collaborator of Aaliyah and also under Blackground Records, doesn’t know “what’s going on.”
“I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy [Elliott],” he told Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club. “I don’t know what’s going on. The proper way to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. For it to be on his record, that would not be right.”
