Just days after rumorville flared that Drake would be releasing a posthumous Aaliyah album, the first single, “Enough Said” has been leaked. Aaliyah featuring Drake, “Enough Said” includes never before heard vocals from the late singer. The artwork for the album features both the logo for Drake’s label, October’s Very Own, and Blackground Records, with who Aaliyah was signed.
However, there has been a divide in terms of reaction to “Enough Said.” Aaliyah has become a legend since tragically losing her life in a 2001 plane crash at the age of 22. In one corner stands the hardcore Drake fans that praise the crooning MC’s ambition to bring Aaliyah back for a new generation.
But in the opposing corner finds the detractors who balk at such an improbable collaboration. Timbaland, who has worked with Aaliyah for many of her hits, is among the latter. He questioned the thought of a new Aaliyah album without his and Missy Elliott’s involvement. After all, the trio made magic on Aaliyah’s classic 1996 album One in a Million.
