Chris Brown managed to get an unreleased vocal from Aaliyah for his upcoming song “They Don’t Know”. The video was shot recently and you can check out behind the scenes footage of it above. Chris Brown’s new album ‘X’ is due to hit stores on July 16th.
While the upcoming Drake-Aaliyah project has stirred some controversy amongst artists, Lil Wayne voices his opinion and supports Drake’s involvement.
YMCMB leader claims he hasn’t heard any negative feedback about the project, but says it will be a “good move.” Read more
So we’ve all heard the news about a posthumous Aaliyah album that’s being executively produced by Drake and his producer 40. The fact that Drizzy never met the singer, let alone worked with her, has conjured up a lot of skepticism regarding why he’d be commanding the production to begin with. A couple minutes into Angie Martinez’s recent interview with Missy Elliot and Timbaland – who we know had an extremely close relationship with Aaliyah – Angie demanded from the two:
Give me the official Missy and Timbaland stance on this Aaliyah project.
From the sound of it, seems as if this whole thing might not even be going down at all, at least not to their knowledge. Check the dialogue above, and let us know your thoughts on the situation.
We’re doing this for the Aaliyah fans
With the major news of the new single by Aaliyah ft. Drake, Drizzy tells Rapcity that a new Aaliyah project is coming very soon. The album is being “commanded” by Aubrey & Noah “40″ Shebib.
The project will include 13-14 songs, and have features of everyone who has worked with Aaliyah before she passed. Aaliyah’s family and former management team actually reached out to Drake & 40 about this project and it seems like Drake was all for it.
Expect the album to drop later this year or early 2013.

Timbaland is responsible for an indefinite amount of hits. One of the hits he’s responsible for is Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody.” Timbo talks about how he and Static Major only had a few hours to finish the track for the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack.
Drake lets Aaliyah know it’s real and tats her face on his skin, so it seems. Drizzy was playing tennis with a couple of friends, when he took his shirt off and someone snapped a pic of his back. Apparently, that’s him on the right with the white headband. Good thing Drake didn’t get her face on his face, that would’ve been…ironic.
J. Cole explains to Soulculture how he made a beat in tribute to Aaliyah who tragically died aged 22 in a plane crash on August 25, 2001.
On what would be her 32nd Birthday today (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001) J. Cole also stated that he had a little boy crush on Aaliyah.
Drake speaks to Soulculture about the influence that Aaliyah (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001) had on his music in remembrance on her birthday.
He stated that Aaliyah had one of the biggest impacts on his career and that he fell in love with her from an early age.
