Drake To Executive Produce New Aaliyah Album
Drake is set to executive produce Aaliyah’s upcoming album. The rapper is also set to feature the late songstress on his new single. The Young Money rapper, who has a tattoo of the late singer on his back, will be a driving force in the production of her new LP...
There is not too much detail surrounding the album at present, but in March, producer Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker said that an unreleased song titled ‘Steady Ground’ will feature on the venture. Aaliyah’s brother Rashad Haughton later said that no such album was in the works.
Drake implied that he had some “special things” related to Aaliyah in motion during an interview with Tim Westwood in late March. “I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon,” he said. “Just some special things. Just gave you that, just a little. Because I said, I’m with Westwood, so I can’t not. But great things, great things for music, period.”
Drake, who sampled Aaliyah’s ‘At Your Best’ for his track ‘Unforgettable’, is set to feature her vocals on his upcoming single which he will debut at the OVO Festival that takes place this Sunday in Toronto.
