Fans of Aaliyah around the world were outraged when news got out that Drake would be executive producing a posthumous record of the pop-star…without the assistance of her legendary team Timbaland and Missy Elliot.
But according to Miss Info, those reports may have been incorrect. A source close to the project told Miss Info that Timbaland WILL be a part of the upcoming Aaliyah album, and, as of now, is on board to produce two songs. Drake’s involvement in the album may have been inflated as well, as the source reports that, so far, he’s only on the “Enough Said,” track that was released a few days ago.
Unlike previously thought, Aaliyah’s own label, Blackground Records, released “Enough Said,” not Drake. Blackground Records is run by Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson, so obviously her family is behind the album. Noah “40″ Shebib, who produced “Enough Said,” is reportedly also on board to produced a majority of the tracks on the album.
So all you Aaliyah fans can calm down now! Although Missy Elliot wasn’t specifically named as part of the project, there’s no doubt that if Timbo is on board, than she is too. The two still work very closely together, and have reportedly just wrapped up recording a joint album together.
Maybe now you’ll give “Enough Said” another chance?
