Drizzy Drake may have one of his ultimate fantasies come true and get his chance to “collaborate” on new music with the late Aaliyah. HHDX claims to have spoken to someone close to Drake about him executive producing a posthumous Aaliyah album. Allegedly, he will also make a guest appearance on a upcoming song from the album.
A reliable source with inside knowledge of the situation told HipHopDX that the Young Money rapper, who has a tattoo of the songstress on his back, will sit at the helm for her new LP. Details surrounding the album are scarce, but in March, producer Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker said that an unreleased song titled “Steady Ground” will appear on the project. Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, later said that no such album was in the works.
Do you think Drake will do the album justice?

Additionally, Drake, who sampled Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love)” for his track “Unforgettable,” is reportedly set to feature her vocals on his upcoming single. He is set to debut the song at the OVO Festival, taking place this Sunday (August 5th) at Toronto, Canada’s Molson Amphitheatre.
