Drake Previews One Of Those Unreleased Aaliyah Songs: Listen

Carl Williott | December 3, 2013 7:43 am

Earlier this year, Drake revealed that he’d dropped out of a planned album of posthumous Aaliyah music. But he indicated there were unheard tracks with him on them, though it’s unclear when, if ever, they’ll be released. Today, though, Drizzy posted an Instagram video which seems to feature snippets of one of those songs.

Unfortunately, the clip comprises disjointed chunks, rather than a continuous 15-second take, but here’s what we can tell from the video: the song is slow and empty, like pretty much every Drake/Shebib arrangement, vocals that appear to be Aaliyah’s are featured heavily, Drake sings as well (which, of course, doesn’t rule out the possibility that he also raps on it) and Drake is fueled by Cheez-Its.

Check it out below.
