New Music: Aaliyah feat. Drake "Enough Said"
Drake seems to be working with EVERYONE these days and, apparently, artists who are no longer alive are also fair game. The Canadian rapper is the executive producer of a posthumous album from Aaliyah who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001.
The artwork of "Enough Said" features logo of Drake's October Very Own and Blackground Records, whose first signed artist was Aaliyah. In fact, two employees from the label died along with her.
Timbaland, who worked extensively with Aaliyah and also under Blackground Records recently told Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club: "I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy [Elliott]. I don't know what's going on. The proper way to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. For it to be on his record, that would not be right."
Agreed. I hope this is all done right because resurrecting the vocals and material of someone who has passed on can be done tastefully or it can be done in a manner that is exploitative which, of course, is disrespectful to both the artist and their fans.
The accident that claimed the rising star’s life occurred in The Bahamas. She and her crew had just finished filming the video for “Rock the Boat.” They were supposed to fly out on a bigger plane the next day but, having finished filming early, chose to load the equipment and passengers onto a smaller plane. When the aircraft tried to take off, it was over the maximum allowable weight by 700lbs and subsequently crashed not long after takeoff. Aaliyah and the eight others on board were killed.
