Plans to release a Drake and Aaliyah album may have been scratched by Drake’s producer 40 Shebib, but that didn’t stop Drizzy from previewing two new records that feature the late great singer. As reported by rap-up.com:
“Drake took over club Griffin in New York City with French Montana on Monday. While on the turntables, he previewed two previously unreleased songs including a collaboration with Aaliyah (via Word On Road).
“The late singer’s angelic voice can be heard on one track, reportedly titled “Talk Is Cheap.” Drake and his producer Noah “40″ Shebib were working on a posthumous Aaliyah album before backing out due to the backlash, but he was hopeful that one of their songs would see the light of day.”
The Drake-Aaliyah album has been a major point of contention in rap news with people like Timbaland having varying views on the concept. The entire idea was eventually scrapped when Aaliyah’s mother told 40 Shebib that she’d rather not see the album released.
Drake’s latest album Nothing Was The Same was a smash hit from last year, but the Toronto native seems to have a lot of unreleased records that didn’t make the album as he’s recently been releasing new music almost every week .
Time will tell if the songs will make unofficial debuts on the Internet. In the meantime, check out the videos below with Drake previewing the records.
