We learned that a posthumous Aaliyah album may be in production after producer Jeffery “J. Dub” Walker suggested it via Twitter a while ago, and now Drake is fuelling rumours about how he’ll be taking part by saying he has “some great Aaliyah news coming soon.” He further described the secret project as “great for music, period,” but he also felt the need to explain that while “it’s hard for [him] to ride around to a female singer because [he’s] a man,” Aaliyah is an exception because she “always kept it G with the writing and the melodies.” There is still no word from Aaliyah’s record label Background Records, but considering that her music reminds Drake of when he “used to love,” we figure there’s a near guarantee that something big is going to happen very soon.
