Drake To Executive Produce Posthumous Aaliyah Album?
May Also Feature Her On His Next Single
Drake is reportedly set to executive produce Aaliyah's upcoming posthumous album, as well as feature the late singer on his new single.
A source rold HipHopDX that the Young Money rapper, who has an Aaliyah tattoo on his back, will sit at the helm for her new LP.
Details surrounding the album are scarce, but in March, producer Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker said that an unreleased song titled 'Steady Ground' will appear on the project. Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, later said that no such album was in the works.
In late March, Drake told Tim Westwood that he had some “special things” related to Aaliyah: “I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon. Just some special things. Just gave you that, just a little. Because I said, I’m with Westwood, so I can’t not. But great things, great things for music, period.”
Drake is reportedly set to feature Aaliyah's vocals on his upcoming single, set to debut at the OVO Festival taking place this Sunday (August 5th) in Toronto. He previously sampled her on 'Unforgettable' on his first album 'Thank Me Later'.
