And the story continues. After weeks of reports of a postumous Aaliyah album and with the release of a new single featuring Drake, the late singers brother, Rashad Haughton, has taken to facebook to denounce any involvement or support in any upcoming project(s), saying: “there is no official [Aaliyah] album being released and supported by the Haughton family”.
This is a particularly strange development considering ‘Enough Said’ was released officially via Aaliyah’s record label Blackground Records (a company set up and run by her uncle), whose logo is also featured on the official artwork. To further fuel the confusion a source close to Miss Info has confirmed that a new album is underway and will feature at least two songs from Timbaland. She also confirms reports that the majority of the project will be produced by Noah ’40′ Shebib, but that so far Drake isn’t featured on any other songs.
Rashad also commented on the on-going rumours of an Aaliyah biopic, saying: “No female I’ve seen can play my sister”.
At this point, who knows what’s going on but it’s safe to say, regardless of which side of the fence you’re on, any project released without the support of Aaliyah’s immediate family wouldn’t feel right.
