Drake is also heard to have the approval of Aaliyah’s former management and her label so the rumored project is a GO! – Flip and read on….
Drake spoke to Much Music during a backstage interview at the OVO Fest this weekend.
During the interview with Much, Drizzy confirmed that he is working on an Aaliyah album with his producer Noah ’40? Shebib, the project will be released this year and he’s hoping to get everyone that was essential to her career involved (including Missy and Tim).
“People should be excited [about the new single]. It’s all off of an Aaliyah project that me and 40 are commanding and 40 is just doing some incredible incredible music right now. To get 13-14 new Aaliyah songs …. everybody should be excited.
It’s not about me, and it’s not about 40, it’s really about her and her fans…and us just getting an opportunity to give you something that we feel is great. And you know, the people around her, everybody from her family to her old management and label, were just like, ‘If there’s anybody out who can do it right now, it’s you and 40.‘ And it was an honor to pull in some classic people, like anybody who used to work with Aaliyah that was essential in her”career, we hope to have them involved. So it’s great to have a new Aaliyah album this year on top of everything.”
