“No call has been made to me. I have to respect her family, and until they come and say they’re ready to do an Aaliyah album then I don’t really want to get into that because it’s very sensitive. It’s not records that already done came out, we’re talking about unfinished music. And we don’t know what her reasoning for not putting those records out. Maybe she didn’t feel like they were her best work. We just don’t want to tap into that, just spiritually something else you know…..very very touchy. Unless her parents came in and conducted that.”
“I don’t even know if it’s an album, I don’t think that’s in the works. I don’t know, I think it’s blown out of proportion. I haven’t spoken to Drake yet. I have a hard time just hearing her music.”
“To me…..the tattoo part, did that man come in here and show ya’ll. Like lift up his shirt, I mean they said pictures are online.”
“I think that the tattoo is real, I did see a picture of it. You know what, let me be quiet….you know what it is, because he’s a human being too. A lot of people may not have met Michael Jackson, but feel they have a connection with him.”
And according to the Huffingtonpost, the two hip-hop heavyweights were professionally and personally close with the late singer, who died tragically in a plane crash in 2001. When news first spread of Drake releasing a posthumous Aaliyah album, fans thought Elliott and Timbaland would be in. However, neither has been contacted about or involved in the process.
