When asked if his announcement had anything to do with a rumoured record between the pair, the Over rapper teased: "Just some special things, you know. Great things for music, period."
He then continued to speak of his admiration for the deceased star, telling Westwood: "I think more than anything Aaliyah always made music that was never uncomfortable for me to listen to.
"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 Aaliyah the most."
Drake has made no secret of his love for Aaliyah, confessing in a letter on the ninth anniversary of her death that he was "truly in love" with her.
