Drake wasn’t kidding: A new Aaliyah album is due in 2013, according to her label. Barry Hankseron, CEO of Blackground Records and Aaliyah’s uncle, tweeted new details on Wednesday (Aug. 29), including the album’s cover art. The blue-gray image features a female figure surfacing from under water, with Aaliyah gazing out from a monogram of two As.

Confusion has surrounded the project since Drake released his Noah “40″ Shebib-produced collaboration with the late R&B singer, “Enough Said”, earlier this month. It’s still unclear whether Aaliyah’s family has officially blessed the resurfacing of her unreleased material. Aaliyah’s longtime collaborators Missy Elliott and Timbaland were also rumored to be attached, but Timbaland later issued a statement saying that they’d never been contacted by Drake’s team. (The pair are however working on their own individual albums, with Missy reportedly set to drop two new songs Labor Day weekend.)

    This isnt the original artwork someone stole it, messed it up and passed it off as their own. The ORIGINAL artist is Tone S. Burke from Toronto and the piece he created is on his website http://originaltone.com/post/30160240862/aaliyah
