Drake was already expressing his eerie obsession with the late singer Aaliyah with his tattoos and all. However, when he decided to release a posthumous record featuring Aaliyah, many were in an uproar. Especially when he hinted at the fact that he was producing Aaliyah’s first posthumous album and the song, Enough Said, will be the first of many songs featuring the singer. Many fans feel Drake may be stepping outside of his boundaries to even DARE attempt such a task. Timbaland and Missy Elliot said that no posthumous Aaliyah album should be released without their involvement. Then when Timbaland heard the Drake/Aaliyah album entitled “Enough Said,” he decided he may want to get on board for the project (or maybe a project of his own.)
But the drama does not end here. Apparently, the Haughton family has gotten wind of the whole situation and Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton posted a message on Aaliyah’s Facebook fan page on behalf of the family.
“There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.”
This is very messy. Drake’s judgement is seriously in question. Not only attempting to produce a posthumous Aaliyah album without the family’s permission but using Aaliyah’s voice on “Enough Said,” a Chris Brown diss track? No too tactful. More like TACKY? We’ll see how this project unfolds. We just hope that all involved respect and honor Aaliyah’s talent and memory.
