Producer @Timbaland And @MissyElliott Believe Aaliyah’s ‘Album In The Works’ Is A Fake! (Well Damn)!

| September 19, 2012 | 0 Comments

In a recent interview with Hot 105’s The Breakfast Club, legendary record producers Timbaland and Missy Elliott touch on the posthumous “album in the works” for late singer/songwriter Aaliyah continuing their promotional run for their latest singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat“. Aaliyah worked with Tim and Missy for her second album One In A Million and as a result it sold 3.7 million copies in the United States and over eight million copies worldwide. The “album in the works” will be executively produced by Noah “40” Shebib and YMCMB’s rapper/singer Drake. 

“Is it really real? What’s one record to say there’s an album? Some people can… I don’t know if this is a real topic. I know people… We hear people, but we know, I think it’s just fabricated. I think people blowing it out of proportion. I don’t think it’s all of that. I think something maybe occurred and I think it might have been pulled back. I think people made it more than what it is. I don’t think it’s real,” Timbaland said. “I talked to 40 and that’s what I’m saying, it’s all misconstrued. I think that it was presented in a way where it wasn’t that picture. He called me like, ‘Yo, what has happened? I think we was just doing a song and it blew out of proportion.’ I was like, I don’t know, because when it comes to Baby Girl, it’s very sensitive.” 

MissyElliot had this to say…“I can say this. Nobody has reached out to me. It’s not even about reaching out to me. I personally want to respect her family. If her mother or her brother or father has come and said we’re ready to do an Aaliyah album because I always say as fans – we are still fans too – as fans, we would want to hear Aaliyah but there’s a respect that has to be given and shown. Because for us, we can go on about our lives and we still mourn, but not the way this family – her mother, her brother, her father – they knew her before she was Aaliyah to the world. So until they come and say ‘Missy and Tim, we are ready to do an Aaliyah album,’ we just felt like we would pull back from it. But nobody reached out either. But Tim, I think someone reached out to Tim yesterday.”

Drake might want to reconsider doing the album since all the people who worked with the late singer are shying away from anything that has to do with it.
