Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Drake Working On A Joint Album With Aaliyah?

Drake is not shy about sharing his love and affinity for late R&B singer Aaliyah. He even has a tattoo of her face etched on his back and sampled her on one of his albums. Well, we hear that Drizzy may be working on a joint album with the late star. Check out what he said about the possible collabo:

“Some special things. Great things man. Great things for music, period.

“You know it’s hard for me to ride around to a female singer because at the end of the day, you’re a man, but she always kept it so G with the writing and the melodies. It was something to ride to, especially when it was chopped and crewed. That’s when I used to love.”

Earlier this month, producer, Jeffery “J. Dub” Walker of The Hitmen tweeted that a posthumous Aaliyah album could be on the way.

“Just got great news today; the smash unreleased song called “Steady Ground” I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album:)” he wrote. There has been no confirmation from Aaliyah’s label, Background Records (distributed via Interscope) that the album is being produced.

It seems as if Drake is hell bent on doing a joint album with somebody… Rihanna, Weezy, or Aaliyah. Which one would you be checking for the most?

  • Drake is bugging …..still , I think it would be a dope album , on the strength of Alliyah.

  • LetsBeRealpeople

    Drake is a canker blossom…and 2) Rashad Haughton spoke on all these rumors of another Aaliyah album coming out, when the estate is settled then there will be projects that will be a green light, but it’s up to the family once things settle.

    Big fan of Baby Girl all day, but to hell with folks frontin’. When I google Aaliyah..I don’t want to see this fools face. Damn leech:

    • jamaicanbornanbreed

      so….. just crawled up from under the rock huh….dumbass..no respect for da dead

    • LetsBeRealpeople

      Aaliyah came on the scene and still maintains to be relevant, all by her lonesome. Yainfeelim’hn her and that can happen. But she came on the scene at 15, went ghost at 22, been gone for ten years and folks still all about her as if she broke anew yesterday, why? Because she kept it custom, and kept it classic. lots a folks gone an they get a shout now n’ then. But this lady stamped her own route. You can’t deny that son.

  • Ummmm the label is called BLACKGROUND…not BACKGROUND…SMH…Do your research. 

  • D_Ably

    I’ll be the first to admitt that i am a hater, a top pedigree hater. But this idea sounds genuinly awful, all hate put to the side, this is just shit. why can’t they just drop an Aaliyah album if they got material? whats flakey jake got to do with it?

  • Jet Dynasty


  • is anybody still checking for drake? Or nikki? i think thier buzz is about up.. thats why birdturd is signing everybody and anybody

    • Sexy_Sabe
