Well things just aren’t looking up for Aaliyah’s upcoming posthumous album. Last week Drake and Aaliyah’s label Blackground stated that Missy Elliott and Timbaland would in fact contribute to the upcoming album. As of today that is now false according to a statement released by Missy Elliot’s Manager.
"Although Missy and Timbaland always strive to keep the memory of their close friend alive, we have not been contacted about the project nor are there any plans at this time to participate," Mona Scott-Young, longtime manager for Missy Elliott, says. "We've seen the reports surfacing that they have been confirmed to participate but that is not the case. Both Missy and Timbaland are very sensitive to the loss still being felt by the family so we wanted to clear up any misinformation being circulated."
Clearly there is a lot of confusion and drama going on with this upcoming release. One being the fact Aaliyah’s brother said no one from his family supports this album. With Missy and Tim out the picture, I’m starting to wonder what is the purpose of releasing the album without two people who really helped Aaliyah’s career. Hopefully a lot of things get cleared up between everyone, because this album seems like a great idea if executed right.
