In a series of posts made on Twitter this week Barry Hankerson (@BarryHankerson), the man claiming to be the uncle and former manager of the late Aaliyah on Twitter, revealed the alleged cover art for what he says will be Aaliyah’s posthumous album.

Hankerson also revealed that the album will be released sometime next year.

    Wait Timbaland and Missy are NOT participating, and her family condemns it. Yet they STILL are going to go through with this!! I mean, yes Barry was her uncle, but shouldn't he respect his niece's family's wishes then?? I mean, is he really going to do what Selena's father has done and exploit the dead singers unreleased material to a point that is unreasonable.

    Dame rigged the plane to crash. Best believe.

    I don't like the album cover because of one major reason: It shows the figure of Aaliyah underwater. Being that she died in a plane crash off the coast of the Bahamas, I'd say if this is real, then it is a major fail.

    Ja Rule heard got his hands on an advanced copy of the Aaliyah album, and told a reporter for XXL that it was quite possibly the worst sounding thing since Curtis.

    Drake is thinking about calling the album, "Dead and Buried" in reference to Timbo and Missy's careers.

    Ja Rule?? he should've ignored 50 Cent..50 got him off his game of taking over the world with pop tunes. he was 1 video away from pink velour suits and lip gloss with homos blowing bubbles.

    that cover is stunning. all thats needed on it is missy and timb. aside from that though, being that it's a posthumous album and she is not even around - i can overlook the fact that those guys aren't on it. it's not like Drake was in the studio with her and chose to leave out missy and timb. so in hindsight i'll listen to a few songs here and there but my full support WOULD HAVE been given if the people who knew her best were involved.
