In another life, Drake would have definitely wifed up Aaliyah.
Earlier today, he posted a song to his blog titled, ‘Enough Said’ featuring the late singer’s vocals, just a few weeks after rumors started swirling that he would be executive producing a posthumous album by her. This leaves so many questions like how exactly Drizzy has gained access and clearance to her records. And we already sort of know what Timbaland thinks of this [Back in April, he told the Breakfast Club, ‘If [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him and Missy. 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 because I think it’s wrong to make money off the dead.]
Nevertheless, The Drake and Aaliyah combo may come out kind of ill. [He’s probably working on her hologram as we speak].
On the newly released track, posted on October’s Very Own, Aaliyah sings:
I can tell something’s wrong with you do you wanna talk about talk about it
You say you got a lot on your mind, sit down, let’s talk about talk about it
I hate to see you feel this way , so tell me what I can do to make it better for you
make it better for you babe.
She continues to persuade her love interest to talk to her on the very short second verse before Drake drops his sixteen reflecting on the industry and his rivals:
Selling under 150? You niccas gotta be kidding
Is this even still a discussion
Do you ever wake up disgusted?
Every million I gain an enemy or a cousin and people’s feelings change ever since I became something
Take a listen below:
Sidenote: Since the artwork includes Aaliyah’s label’s logo (ran by her uncle/manager Barry), he more than likely gave Drake his blessings.
