It looks like Timbaland may have a hand in the Drake and 40 produced Aaliyah project after all. Aaliyah fans were in an uproar on twitter bashing Drake for his exclusion of Timbo on the album, and it looks like Drake may have adhered to the public outcry. According to Miss Info, “Enough Said” was released by Aaliyah’s own label, Blackground Records, which is run by her uncle, Barry Hankerson. The song wasn’t leaked by Drake or 40 as previously reported.
The source says that Timbo has already produced two tracks on the upcoming album, and that 40 will be producing the majority of the album. We hear that Drake is only on one song at the moment, the recently released “Enough Said”.
There is one issue here – Aaliyah’s brother Rashad hopped on his Facebook page yesterday to shoot down any rumors that the family was in support of the new album as previously supported:
“there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.” -Rashad Haughton (regarding upcoming album release rumors)
Rashad also shot down rumors of an Aaliyah biopic in the works, posting the following message on Facebook, “No female I’ve seen can play my sister.” -Rashad
Sidenote: Timbaland and Missy have recorded a joint album and will be releasing it soon. Will you be checking for that?
