Drake has effectively been proven a liar, despite that the fact that he appears on 2 Chainz’s hit song ‘No Lie’. Although the emotional rapper suggested to MuchMusic that every person who was involved in Aaliyah’s career would contribute to her first posthumous album, Missy Elliott and Timbaland have denied such claims.
Via their manager Mona Scott-Young, Elliott and Timbaland made it clear that they will not participate in the recording of a new Aaliyah album, which is being helmed by Drake. In fact, they revealed they weren’t even contacted for the project and that any claims to the contrary are false.
Elliott and Timbaland famously refocused R&B music with Aaliyah in the late 1990s and created such hits as ‘One in a Million’. Read what they had to say below:
“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.”

There first single from Aaliyah’s new album is ‘Enough Said (Ft. Drake)‘. Sadly, I no longer care and neither does Naevia from ‘Spartacus: Vengeance’.
