Aaliyah fans rejoice. While there were rumblings earlier this year of a new Aaliyah project in the works, the future looks brighter if her number one fan — Drake — has anything to say about it. A source close to HipHopDx, says that the Young Money rapper has been tapped to produce Aaliyah’s first posthumous album.  While not too many details of the upcoming project are available, if Drake is involved, it’ll be a labor of love.
