UPDATE: 7:15pm EST
The drama behind the posthumous Aaliyah album has been turnt up as Blackground Records has released a statement contradicting what Aaliyah’s brother posted on her Facebook page yesterday.
As reported by Missinfo:
A high-level source at Blackground Records (run by Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson and cousin Jomo Hankerson) sent us this message:
“Let them know that it’s family stuff that we’re working thru now but Aaliyah’s mother wanted us to do this!“
Seems like Timbaland wasn’t the only person giving Drake the people’s eyebrow over his rumored involvement in a posthumous Aaliyah album.
The late singer’s brother, Rashad Haughton, seems to also be a little confused and concerned over the OVOXO rapper’s latest project.
The official Aaliyah Haughton Facebook page posted a comment released by Rashad, stating:
Immediately following, the page posted a general inquiry to the songbird’s fans, asking:
It’s been ten full years since the release of Aaliyah’s eponymous album – nicknamed The Red Album – however, hearing the songbird’s beautiful voice after so many years just wouldn’t feel right without the support of the people and family members that knew and loved her best.
