Contrary to a statement from Blackground Recordings, Missy Elliott says she knew nothing about the upcoming Aaliyah album.
Confusion continues to mount around the upcoming Aaliyah album, as close friend and long time collaborator Missy Elliott revealed that she knew nothing about the project.Â Original reports were that Drakewould be producing the album, and then he confirmed that his producer Noah â40â Shebib and he would be âcommandingâ the project, and stated that people âessentialâ to Aaliyahâs career would be involved â which infers both Timbaland and Missyâs involvement.
Now, in a tweet to a fan regarding Aaliyahâs album, which was later deleted, Missy Elliott said (from HipHopDX) âI had no clue there was no 1 told meâ¦âÂ This comes after one of the heads of Blackground Recordings, Jomo Hankerson, who is also Aaliyahâs cousin said âI can tell you that Timbaland will definitely be involved, Missy will definitely be involved.âÂ
Previous reports were that Noah â40â Shebib would be producing the bulk of the records on the LP, but that Timbaland would be producing a couple tracks, but even that is yet to be confirmed.Â All we know for now is that there is an Aaliyah project, and that Drake is involved in some manner, and that both Drake and Aaliyahâs label want to see Timbo and Missy involved.Â
For now, you can at least enjoy Aaliyahâs âEnough Saidâ from the project, featuring Drake.Â
