It's been more than ten years since R&B lost its most promising young voice, and just as long since we've heard new music from Aaliyah, but apparentlyDrake's determined to change all that. Shortly after news surfaced that Drake, who hasn't been shy about proclaiming his love for Aaliyah, would be executive producing her posthumous album comes new release Enough Said. Instead of the Missy and Timbland beats that were Aaliyah's hallmarks while alive here we get Drake's constant production partner Noah "40" Shebib's now familiar underwater synth sound, which subtly compliments Aaliyah's always sultry and understated vocals. A middle verse from Drizzy that feels more like a headlining turn than a guest verse is sure to have people talking, and debating, but at least they'll be talking about new music from Aaliyah. While details on the album are so far a mystery, the house of OVO will undoubtedly be dropping off some new info (and music) soon.
