Drake, Noah “40” Shebib Executive Producing Posthumous Aaliyah Release

    There have been some ups and down regarding a posthumous Aaliyah release, with her brother Rashad Haughton first saying the rumored work would have no familial support, while also inquiring what fans would want to hear should an album be put together. Despite earlier reports asserting otherwise, it’s now been confirmed (via Billboard) that Drake–who’s featured on the project’s first single “Enough Said”–will co-executive produce the posthumous work with his own right-hand producer Noah “40” Shebib.

    The album has no release date yet, but it will be out on Blackground Records, a label run by Aaliyah’s cousin. It’ll make use of “16 unreleased songs and ‘fragments'” from the singer’s archives and will mark the first Aaliyah release since 2002’s I Care 4 U.
