After month of hinting, Drake has finally dropped his duet the late R&B singer Aaliyah. Titled “Enough Said,” the four minute track bills Drake as a featured artist and includes previously unreleased Aaliyah vocal tracks. The song is reportedly being included on a post-humous Aaliyah album.
The R&B singer died in a plane crash in the Bahamas back in 2001 at the age of 22.
Produced by Drake’s longtime collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, the song has been met with some controversy since its release.
It’s been widely speculated that Drake will be producing the Aaliyah album without help from some vital Aaliyah supporters. Last week, Producer Timbaland said that anything involving Aaliyah should not be produced with his or rapper Missy Elliot’s input. Both he and Missy worked closely with Aaliyah before her untimely passing.
According to MissInfo, that may have changed. Their sources say Timbaland will be producing two tracks. As of now, there is not word of Missy’s involvement just yet.
Another big controversy is the claim that Drake included a little dig at Chris Brown. Drake raps:
Running through the city with n****s I’d give a kidney,
Selling under 150 you n****s got to be kidding,
Is this even still a discussion?
Don’t you ever wake up disgusted?
The Toronto-based rapper may be referring to the measly 135,000 copies Chris Brown’s album “Fortune” sold in its first week. In comparison, Drake’s “Take Care” moved 600,000 copies.
If it really is a dig at Brown, an Aaliyah tribute song may not have been the best place to do it on. He should’ve got 40 to produce another song for that.
