During a backstage interview at OVO Fest 2012, Drake confirmed that he and his producer Noah “40″ Shebib are working on a new Aaliyah project. Aubrey the Pooh revealed that fans would be getting around 13-14 new Aaliyah tracks for the album due this year.
“It’s not about me. It’s not about 40. It’s really about [Aaliyah] and her fans and us just getting the opportunity to give you something that we feel is great,” Drake says. “The people around her — everybody from her family to her old management and label — were just like if there’s anybody out that can do it right now, it’s me and 40.
“That was an honor and we’re gonna pull in some classic people like, anybody who used to work with Aaliyah or that was essential in her career, we definitely hope to have them involved.”
Well according to Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, the family does not support the creation of this album and I still haven’t heard a peep from Timbaland other than the fact that he’s working on Shock Value 3. Something in the milk ain’t clean.
