Only two months have passed since Drizzy and Breezy reportedly faced off in a NYC club. The story was that the Canadian born rapper supposedly had words with Brown over ex Rihanna. Then an ugly bottle throwing brawl took place, entourage vs. entourage. By the time the fight was over, Chris had a nasty gash on his face and the beef was a legal matter. Several innocent parties including NBA player Tony Parker claimed to have been wounded with shards of flying glass.
Drake is hoping to erase talk of his Breezy battle with an exciting new track. The former "DeGrassi" star has released a new song on his blog from late singer Aaliyah. The song is named "Enough Said" and fuels rumors that the hip hop producer is creating a posthumous album featuring the beloved artist. Of course, Drake also raps on the new tune.
The beautiful Aaliyah died in August 2001. She was 22 at the time and would have been 33 this year. Her loss to the industries of music and movies was gut wrenching. By all accounts she was a positive and caring young woman. Her loving family and celeb friends and collaborators like Missy Elliott have always sought to keep her memory alive.
For those too young to remember, here's a basic primer on Ms. Aaliyah Dana Haughton.
The R. Kelly Connection
Aaliyah's debut studio album in 1994 was named "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number." The title was appropriate as the singer was only 15 at the time. Some found it inappropriate, however, that she was reportedly secretly married to her adult producer R. Kelly. The illegal marriage was eventually quietly annulled by her parents.
"Romeo Must Die"
Aaliyah co-starred in 2000 with martial arts star Jet Li in this dramatic romance. In the modern day "Romeo and Juliet" story, Aaliyah flexed her acting chops as Trish O'Day to Li's Han Sing Rapper DMX also stars along with actors Delroy Lindo and Isaiah Washington. The film's soundtrack was a hard pumping mix of hip hop and R&B heavily featuring Aaliyah's vocal stylings.
"Queen of the Damned"
Aaliyah's second film was released after her death. The singer plays Queen Akasha in the 2002 Anne Rice based vampire flick. Stuart Townsend plays the vampire Lestat. The project was directed by Michael Rymer.
Aaliyah continues to be mourned and celebrated to this day. If Drake does present a full posthumous album, he'll find a waiting audience of old and new Aaliyah fans ready to listen.
So, what do you think? Did Drake do Aaliyah justice with "Enough Said"?
