A ‘new’ Aaliyah track surfaced on Sunday via Drake’s OVO Festival blog (which he was hosting in Toronoto).
It’s had mixed response, with some fans calling the posthumous track disrespectful – and the Haughton family denying any official involvement in an album that would see her unfinished work finally released 11 years after her death.
The Guardian wraps it up nicely with this; “Many fans have taken exception to Enough Said, accusing Drake of tastelessness. Before she died in 2001, Aaliyah was most famous for her work with Missy Elliott and Timbaland, on 1996’s One in a Million. But as of Tuesday, neither artist had been approached by Drake. “I don’t know what’s going on,” Timbaland told Power 105. “The proper way to do [a collaboration] would be for me, [Drake] and Missy to be all on the record.””
But with that aside, the track is beautiful – and it’s on repeat via Hype while I work.
