Timbaland Reportedly Producing Two Songs on New Aaliyah Album

It looks like Timabaland may be getting his wish after all.

When news surfaced months back about a new project from Aaliyah, using the late singer’s unreleased vocals, is on the way, the veteran producer voiced his desire to be involved with the project. “I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy,” Timbo told New York’s Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club back in April, in reference to Drake and the rap star’s alleged involvement.

Over the weekend, the song “Enough Said,” the first of new music from Aaliyah, which featured a verse from Drake, premiered at Drizzy’s third-annual OVO Festival in Toronto and hit the Internet shortly later. According to Missinfo.TV, the track was not released by Drake, but rather Blackground Records, which is run by Aaliyah’s uncle, Barry Hankerson. In addition, the Hot 97 personality is reporting on her site that Timbo will indeed be involved with the project, and will be producing at least two new songs. The bulk of the production, though, is said to be handled by Drake’s frequent collaborator Noah “40″ Shebib.

    He nor Missy would ever contacted, reportedly.
    Sorry; what?
    Aren’t you a journalist?!

    • Nuts about English

      “He nor Missy would ever contacted, reportedly.”
      Like he said; what the fuck does this mean?!
      This does not make sense?!
      Do XXL journalist’s not have any accountability? They can just forever make mistakes, and not edit their post?
      Disgrace.
      Not the first time either Jakinder Singh; awful writer.
      ‘N for the record, next time you use the word compliment, check it’s right.
      ‘Compliment’ alludes to telling someone something nice about themself. ‘Complement’ is the way two people can work together as a great pair.
      i.e. 9th Wonder’s soulful production complements Jay’s introspection on this track. Not COMPLIMENT’S!
      Understood?!
