Drake & Aaliyah's Haunting Duet! Listen Here!

Filed under: Music MinuteTimbalandPerezTVDrake

Chills… both of the amazed variety and the slightly creeped out kind!

So rap's current golden boy Drake is apparently a massive Aaliyah fan, and it seems dude has been a-busy constructing posthumous Aaliyah tracks using the late, great talent's unreleased material!

A duet titled Enough Said (above) JUST leaked all over them tricky internetz, and the tune features Aaliyah's unforgettable purr paired with Drake's signature methodical rapping, all backed up with slow and somber atmospheric sounds, and of course a repetitive drum beat.

While Drake has

This is FABulous news!!!

According to producer, Jeffery “J. Dub” Walker, Aaliyah's unreleased material could be compiled for a brand new album!

Walker, who produced songs off Aaliyah's last and self-titled album, tweeted that one of his songs would be on an upcoming album. The song, Steady Ground, didn't make the cut on Aaliyah due to its final vocals becoming lost during the final recording phases.

Could we see a posthumous Aaliyah comeback?!

Not so fast:

steve jobs gets a grammy

So well deserved!

Today, the Recording Academy announced that Steve Jobs will be posthumously honored during a special ceremony one day before this year's Grammy Awards.

Jobs' significant contribution to the music industry will be recognized with a Special Merit Award, which falls under the Grammys' Trustees Award category.

Given the fact that pretty much EVERYONE listens to their music on iTunes these days, we'd say Steve definitely earned this honor!

What do U think? Does Steve Jobs deserve a Grammy???

First Amy Winehouse Track Off Of Her Posthumous Album Debuts! Check Out Like Smoke HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteAmy WinehouseR.I.P.Nas

So bittersweet.

As happy as we are to have new music from her, it's only that much more of a reminder that she'll never be able to make any more.

Check out the first song to debut from Amy Winehouse's upcoming posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures - which was compiled by producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson with the consent of the late singer's family - called Like Smoke, which also features fresh verses from Nas (above)!

Definitely sounds as though this one may have been recorded earlier in her career, during the Frank sessions, but her voice is as flawless and soulful as ever, and the rapping fits well with the tone of the track!

May Amy be at peace.

You're missed, gurl.
