And the drama continues. After Timbaland said he knew nothing about the album, and that Drake should have included him and Missy Elliot in the production, it has been reported that Timbaland has agreed to be involved in the project. MissInfo.tv reported that the producer/rapper will work on two songs on the posthumous album, but Missy Elliot’s involvement is still unclear.
So is everything okay, and is everybody happy? Not really, because now Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, has made an official announcement via Aaliyah’s official Facebook page to confirm that the family will not endorse Drake’s version of Aaliyah’s posthumous album OR any other producer’s, as a matter of fact.
He wrote shortly, but clearly:
“There is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.”
Drake had hinted in an interview earlier this year that he was working on something in Aaliyah’s name, and this was denied by Rashad.
We’re keeping our eyes and ears open on this case. Meanwhile, Aaliyah fans, do you think Aaliyah’s family should support Drizzy’s effort in producing the posthumous album? Share your thoughts right here.
