Drake’s involvement in Aaliyah’s new posthumous single “Enough Said” is getting mixed reviews from fans online.Â MTV News reports the pro-Drizzy crowd took to Twitter after the song was posted online this weekend, thanking the Toronto rapper for continuing the late R&B singer’s legacy.Â But not everyone is on board.Â Twitter-user @tiphonic said “Drake’s obsession” with Aaliyah — he sports two tattoos honoring the singer — is a little scary.Â Others also said frequent Aaliyah collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott should be involved in any new music from the singer, a point Timbaland agrees with.Â The producer said in an April radio interview that “it would not be right” for Drake to go forward with a new Aaliyah project without himself and Elliott.
“Enough Said” is rumored to be the first single from an entire posthumous album from Aaliyah, which Drake may be executive producing.Â However, the record and its possible production team have yet to be confirmed.
NecoleBitchie reports over the past few weeks there has been talks of an Aaliyah posthumousÂ albumÂ (executive produced by Drake and his producing partner Noah â€™40â€² Shebib) as well as talks of a biopic which has been going on for years. Read More »
Drake says his next studio album will feature a different vibe than his sophomore release “Take Care.” The rap star explains to Billboard that he’s in a “very different place” right now, adding that he’s “very proud” of his current mindset. Drizzy says fans can look forward to a record that will be “conceptually one of the most exciting projects” he’s worked on. Drake says a big reason for the change in mood on his next record is his recent move from Toronto to Los Angeles. He notes that while he still has a place in his home city, he’s been inspired by all the change he’s encountered after moving to California.

Â A woman claiming to be Drake’s ex-girlfriend is suing the rap star over his hit single “Marvin’s Room.” “Karencivil” says Ericka Lee filed a lawsuit last week in California federal court demanding that she be declared a co-writer of the song. Lee claims she and Drake had a romantic and business partnership in 2010 and 2011. During that time, she alleges that she helped create “Marvin’s Room” with Drake. Lee says she even has text messages from Drizzy in which he confirms that she helped write the track. Lee states that once “Marvin’s Room” was released, their relationship ended and got ugly in a hurry. Drake reportedly offered Lee two percent of “publishing royalties,” and then began making threatening phone calls once she hired a lawyer.
Along with being named a co-writer, Lee is also seeking damages and disgorgement of profits. Drake’s reps say Lee’s lawsuit is “entirely without merit,” and they look “forward to being vindicated in court.”
