AALIYAH IS ALIVE!!! ( "Enough Said" by Aaliyah feat. Drake )

On Sunday (Aug. 5), Drake released "Enough Said," a collaboration he concocted with main producer Noah "40" Shebib and Aaliyah, the R&B starwho was killed in a plane crash in August 2001. The song, billed as Aaliyah's "Enough Said" featuring Drake, is presumably part of a posthumous Aaliyah album that Drake is executive producing, apparently without the help or consent of the singer's longtime friends and collaborators, Missy Elliot and Timberland. Questions, of course, abound -- is Drake making a mistake by touching unreleased Aaliyah material? Will a new Aaliyah album actually be released? Should Drake get the consent of Aaliyah's family and friends before releasing new music? And is "Enough Said" any good???

The artwork of "Enough Said," as pointed out, has the logo of both Drake's October Very Own entity and Blackground Records who's first signee was Aaliyah and reportedly still represent her past and posthumous work.

On Wednesday (Aug. 1), a source told HipHopDX that Drake will be at the helm of an upcoming posthumous project while Timbaland, long time collaborator of Aaliyah and also under Blackground Records, doesn't know "what's going on."

"I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him, and MissyE ," he told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club. "I don't know what's going on. The proper way to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. For it to be on his record, that would not be right."

There's no denying that Aaliyah's smooth vocals sound poetic laid over 40's dark soundscapes. Question is, if there is a posthumous album under way, will it sound the same, and also be fair to loyal Aaliyah fans, if Timbaland and Missy aren't involved?
