Drake To Produce Posthumous Aaliyah Album, Releases Collab Track

August 6, 2012 By:

Drake already has his first post-graduation project going: executive producing a posthumous Aaliyah album.

The R&B phenom, who died at age 22 in a 2001 plane crash in the Bahamas, has long been a source of rumor and if there’s anyone to head up the Aaliyah Ultimate Fan Club project, it’s Drake—he has a tattoo of her on his back, a picture of her on his earpiece when he performs, and has sampled her.

He just released a collaboration track titled “Enough Said,” which features previously in-the-vault vocals from Aaliyah.

This isn’t the first rumor that there was a new Aaliyah album in the works, though, and so far this is the first actual track to come out of them since the 2002 release of Care 4 U.

Timbaland, Aaliyah’s friend and collaborator, expressed his disapproval on New York’s Power 105.1:

"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."

Looks like another feud’s a-brewin for Drake.
