Aaliyah Album WON'T Involve Missy Elliott & Timbaland!

| Filed under: Music MinuteMissy ElliottTimbalandBusiness BlitzDrake


Gaaah! So many conflicting reports, WHAT are we to believe?!

So if you haven't heard, Drake is a massive Aaliyah fan and has been remastering previously unreleased material to be unleashed as a posthumous album later this year…

Awesome possum, right?!

Initially, we'd heard that Aaliyah's old recording chums Missy Elliott and Timbaland were peeved to the max that Drake hadn't involved them in his musical schemes, AND rumors said the album was not supported by Aaliyah's family!

But THEN we heard confirmation from Aaliyah's cousin and manager of Blackground records Jomo Hankerson that YES, a 16 track album featuring unreleased Aaliyah tracks will happen, and that Missy and Timbaland's involvement was gar-un-teed!!

Well, we guess that was a giant psych-out because Missy's rep is denying her and Timba's participation in the Drake helmed project!

Missy's manager reveals:

"Although Missy and Timbaland always strive to keep the memory of their close friend alive, we have not been contacted about the project nor are there any plans at this time to participate…"


Now, we are still slightly confused as to whether Drake's Aaliyah album is the same album Jomo is promoting, or if they are two separate entities. If they ARE two different deals, maybe Missy will participate on the non-Drake recording??

Well WHATEVER, we're just excited to hear more of Aaliyah's velvety purr of a voice - a voice that was silenced far, far too soon.

    this whole drake mastering her music doesnt sit right with me. aaliyah has a specific sound and not to say that if she was alive she wouldnt have evolved a bit, but this song is not what she would have put out…in my opinion. drake is using his fame and fortune to bogart his way to anything remotely close to babygirl. aaliyahs voice can withstand more musically than what drake put on this track. thats why her and Tim sounded so well synched because he understood her style. this song sounds sad and monotoned. and im led to believe that we havent heard any aaliyah music because her family is still grieving and doesnt want new music out, hence why Tim and Missy havent released anything since they are RESPECTING her families wishes. im a die hard fan and im still hurt by her tragic death, but this dude needs to understand that aaliyah worked well with certain artists. even back in the day she didnt really work with a lot of artists even when they were hot at that time. she is good as a solo deal. im telling you lol that Tim, Missy, Magoo, Ginuwine, DMX, and especially Jay Z needs a say on this project! Produced by Tim and Drake ft on A song I can deal with but him in charge of the ENTIRE album is just senseless to me especially since he has never met the girl in order to get a real feeling for what she stood for in her music. drake needs to have a seat.

    I have an idea, Mario: Check on facts BEFORE you post what you steal. That way you don't have to make the exhausting effort of posting a correction. I know it's a radical idea, but it MIGHT make you look less like a fool (nah … I'm lying … there is no way to fix your foolishness).

    Yes, they were peeved to the max, because If they are not in control, they don't want it! Wonder why Missy was only on the "One In A Million" album. She NEVER did any other work with Aaliyah, and Aaliyah had 2 more albums come out after that! Someone should ask her that!

    That's because Missy was jealous of Aaliyah! Everyone knew that! That is why she never worked on any more songs with her after One in A Million album

    Why didn't Missy and Tim do an album before this. They hardly kept Aaliyah's memory alive. Missy had Ciara and Tim had Justin Timberlake. Thanks to Drake we have 16 year olds listening to and loving Aaliyah. Aaliyah's friends hardly are the reason for that.
