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

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???

Amy Winehouse's latest album Lioness: Hidden Treasures is topping the U.K., but who is benefiting from all her posthumous success?
To set the record straight, it is NOT Blake Fielder-Civil, her ex-husband who introduced her to all sorts of drugs. Thankfully, the late musician rewrote her will shortly after divorcing him and left her estate to her family.
