The Aaliyah Archives: News



Hey guys! Sorry I have not been posting as much as I used to, I lead a busy life as you all know, and running a blog by yourself is definitely not an easy job, since it requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Having said that, there is always time for Babygirl in my life and I shall forever maintain her legacy and archive for all to enjoy. Now, this news came out awhile ago, but for those who are not aware of this I'm sharing it for all of you. I'm not one for posting any hate or negativity since that's not my style, but if you guys remember awhile ago Drake posted a small video snippet via Instagram showing a sneak peak song featuring unreleased vocals from our beloved Babygirl. This was originally meant to be used for a release of a posthumous Aaliyah album however, this later got scrapped due to Noah '40' Shebib and Aaliyah's very own Mother Diane Haughton, who expressed very strongly on how they did not want any part on this venture.

However, this did not stop Drake who showcased the song in an NYC Club, partying it up with the likes of French Montana. The actual track itself is titled 'Talk Is Cheap'. Personally, I feel that Drizzy has crossed the line here, since he is going against the wishes of Aaliyah's family by putting out stuff which they feel should not be out. A little respect never hurt anybody right? I aint gonna lie though, hearing these unreleased vocals only makes me wonder what other material she had created in the short amount of time she had to live, and as a true fan who has loved her music before all the Drake/Chris Brown hype it's always nice to come across rare stuff. Anyhoo, below is a video where Drake was blasting the track in the club. Something tells me that he is gonna go ahead with the album despite what others think. I guess only time will tell hey? Shoutout to Rapdose who decided to share this footage with everyone.
