Yesterday we told you that Drake had decided to release a new single titled “Enough Said,” featuring previously unheard vocals from the late singer Aaliyah.
Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, took to his sister’s Facebook page and said that he will not support any posthumous album by Drake or any other producer, nor will his family.
Oddly enough, the artwork for the “Enough Said” track was endorsed by Aaliyah’s label, Blackground Records, which is run by her uncle Barry Hankerson.
When reports started coming out saying Drake was planning on working on a posthumous Aaliyah album, Timberland, who along with Missy Elliot, who played integral roles in her career, blasted the project saying,
I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and Missy. The proper way for him to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. But to put it on his record, would just not be right.
Now, it’s being said that Timberland is signed on to produce at least two new songs, so it does appear the album is a go.
Also said to be in the works is a biopic of Aaliyah’s life. There has been a lot of talk about this since her death over 10 years ago, but it never happened and it appears Rashad is happy about that as he shot down this idea on Facebook as well.
‘Biopic Yes or No?’ No female I’ve seen can play my sister.”
I personally would love to see a movie about Aaliyah’s life, as she was a beautiful and extremely talented artist taken from us much too soon.
Do you think anyone could do her justice in a film??? If so, who?
