New Music By Aaliyah Released!

Sixteen years after her tragic passing, Timbaland releases one of Aaliyah’s unrecorded tracks and I couldn’t be more excited to hear it!

If you’re a thirty-something South Londoner like myself, you most likely remember who Aaliyah was and will be just as excited as I am about this new track! For those that are confused right now and have no idea what I am talking about, Aaliyah was an angel. Literally, that is how her fans remember her.

New Music By Aaliyah Released!On August 25th, 2001, Aaliyah died in a tragic airplane accident. At her funeral, there was an inscription on her portrait that read, “We Were Given a Queen, We Were Given an Angel.”

She was never just your ordinary artist; she was also an actress, model, and dancer. Her music helped revolutionize R&B, hip hop, and pop. The futuristic sounds of the late ’90s and early 2000s can be credited to Aaliyah’s work.

Artist & record producer, Timbaland worked with Aaliyah on her 1996 record, One in a Million and quickly became her go-to producer throughout the height of her career. I am pretty sure the value of her unreleased music catalogue would have shot up exponentially after her untimely death; predicting this, I assume Timbaland has kept all her unreleased music in his vault for years – until now.

On Christmas Eve 2015, Timbaland released a song titled “Shakin'” by the late Aaliyah for his new mixtape, King Stays King and you have to hear it!
