Drake Previews Collaboration With Aaliyah

Drake gave fans a glimpse of one of his recordings with the late Aaliyah.

Late last year, Drake announced that he and Noah "40" Shebib's work on a posthumous Aaliyah album was never going to come to light because of a largely negative public reaction to the idea.

Still, Drizzy previewed one of the tracks on Instagram in December.

Remnants of the collaborative project resurfaced on Monday (February 3), when Drake performed with French Montana at club Griffin in New York City.

Word On Road reports that, while on the turntables, Drake previewed a track with Aaliyah reportedly titled "Talk Is Cheap," apparently the same song he shared in December.

Last month, Noah "40" Shebib spoke about the decision to scrap the album. "The world reacting to Drake’s involvement so negatively, I just wanted nothing to do with it,” he said. "That was a very sad experience for me. I was naïve to the politics surrounding Aaliyah’s legacy and a bit ignorant to Timbaland’s relationship and everybody else involved and how they’d feel. Tim said to me 'Don’t stop, make the album.' I think that was Tim taking the position of, 'I’m not going to stop you. If you’re not going to do it, that’s your decision.' But ultimately, I wasn’t comfortable and didn’t like the stigma. We released ['Enough Said'], but I was seven songs deep. [Aaliyah’s] mother saying, 'I don’t want this out' was enough for me. I walked away very quickly.”

      drake fucking sucks hes the worst rapper ever he needs to back off aaliyah shit her family dont want him touching and find a new hobby in canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • drake runs rap its a fact deal with it delusional cunts

    drake is undoubtedly the king of rap. Drake is officially the king of rap. Feminem is a washed up pop singer that makes pop music. Every other rapper is irrelevent compared to drake they dont have the hits out that drake has right now. They arent making news headlines like drake is or putting out quality music like drake does. Kendrick was never on drakes level and eminem is donne. Since those 2 are out of the picture you fuck boys have to accept the cold hard truth that drake runs this rap shit.

    This is classic! Drake, Aaliyah and 40, it doesn't get much better than that!

  • DFan

    Wouldn't it be Drake featuring Aaliyah posthumously? If we gonna demand for correct correctness...Dame how you feel about this?

  • Anonymous

    and why should I care? All I care about is when Kendrick is going to drop "Its Alive".

    • HUH

      I'm getting sick of the Eminem style "get away with saying things that don't make sense because of my flow" shit. Kendrick is cool though....

  • Kobe Bryant from the Future

    "Collaborated??" Hmm. Maybe he borrowed my flux capacitor and traveled to the year 1999.

  • Come on now

    "Collaboration" LOL. wow. Tomorrow I'm going to collaborate with Drake by screaming "Raptors suck!!!" all over an MP3 of "Started from the Bottom"

    It's not a collaboration if one party isn't even there to say "yes" or make decisions

    release it as your own work via mixtape.
