Timbaland and Missy Elliott have denied their involvement in the Drake-assisted, posthumous Aaliyah album that’s in the works, but Damon Dash (who was the singer’s boyfriend before she passed) says he loves the idea of a new Aaliyah LP.
During an interview with Billboard’s The Juice, the former Roc-A-Fella founder said that he has yet heard the new single, “Enough Said” featuring Drake, nor has he been approached about getting involved.
“Anytime I can hear her voice, that’s a good thing,” he said. “And anyone that respected her enough to make a record with her, I appreciate ya’ll. I haven’t heard the record, but I appreciate the art of it. I love hearing her voice. I hope it’s something that I haven’t heard before.
When asked if he’d like to be involved in the process, if offered, he said he’d love to … if it makes sense.
“That’s interesting. I didn’t know that,” Dame said, regarding news of a posthumous album. “It depends on how he [Drake] wants me to help. I don’t know what I could bring to the table there, but yeah I would do it. Anything involving Aaliyah and it’s positive and the energy [is] right with it, I would be a part of it. My love for Aaliyah will never change.”
