Rumors about a posthumous album from the late singer Aaliyah have been floating around for a while and now it looks like things are finally moving forward. Producer Noah “40” Shebib released a new Aaliyah song last night, entitled “Enough Said,” featuring Drake.
Aaliyah fans are happy to hear the singer’s voice again but some wonder why Drake is the one leading the push behind the project. MTV reports that Drake didn’t know Aaliyah and several fans are upset that he’s reportedly executive producing her posthumous album.
Timbaland, a longtime collaborator of Aaliyah, said that he had mixed feelings about Drake producing the new album.
“I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy [Elliott]… 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. The best decision, what the fans would want to see, is all three of us. It can’t be something to make money off of, ’cause I think it’s wrong to make money off the dead.”
Do you want to hear a new album from Aaliyah? Do you want Timbaland and Missy Elliot to be involved with the new record?
