Aaliyah - Will Drake Produce Aaliyah's New Posthumous Album?
Aaliyah's 'Enough Said' has been the most talked about track of the week, but could a posthumous album from the singer be on the cards? According to an article from the Los Angeles Times' Entertainment section, Drake may have been earmarked to produce a collection of material from the late singer, who passed away in 2001. Drake recently unveiled 'Enough Said,' which features Aaliyah's vocals and he's made no secret of the fact that he is a huge fan of the singer which would make him an excellent choice to take charge of the project.
There has been talk of a new Aaliyah album in the pipeline for some time now; back in March, Jeffery 'J.Dub' Walker posted a message on Twitter to say that a new disc was in the making, but her brother Rashad later said that "no official album [is] being released and supported by the Haughton family." Die-hard fans of Aaliyah's though, will be reluctant to accept any new project that doesn't include her long-term friends and collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott. Timbaland has said that Drake has not yet approached him about a possible new album.
In an interview with New York's Power 105.1, Timbaland said "I know they're trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do do it, it should be with me and him and Missy. I don't know what's going on, but the proper way to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. I produce it. But to put it on his album or to put it on his record or whatever, however it be, it would just not be right."
