Hip-Hop Rumors: Is A New Aaliyah Album In the Works??

That’s the word according to The Hitmen’s Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker, who recently tweeted, “Just got great news today; the smash unreleased song called “Steady Ground” I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album.”

Nothing has been reported or confirmed by her label-home, Blackground Records, regarding a new posthumous album from the singer who won over 20 Billboard Music Awards during her career. According to Hypetrak, if a new album does hit stores, it would be the singer’s “first non-compilation CD since her death” in 2001.

Of the posthumous albums mentioned, 2002’s I Care For You and 2005’s Ultimate Aaliyah are “both best-ofs projects with the former also containing three songs that were previously unreleased.”

We miss you, Aaliyah. In the meantime…

    Love Aaliyah, but for damn what are y’all releasing anything now? Stop trying to capitalize off of dead people, RIP Aaliyah!

    UPDATE: Aaliyah’s brother Rashad Haughton tweeted today, “There is no official album bring released and supported by the Haughton family.” (Interesting — though, essentially, this doesn’t mean there won’t be an album released at all.) Rashad’s tweets are private, but You Know I Got Soul posted a screen grab of the short Twitter statement.

  • In my mind, I would love to hear another Aaliyah album. But in my heart, I have doubts that it would be done right.

    And watching those old videos still breaks my heart

    R.I.P Aaliyah
