Drake is set to wow his fans at his third annual OVO festival in his native Toronto, Canada this weekend by bringing Aaliyah back from the dead.
A source told HipHopDX that Drake will close the event by debuting a new song featuring the late singer, who died in a plane crash in 2001. The source also revealed that the rapper was recruited to produce Aaliyah’s posthumous album.
Drake recently told British DJ Tim Westwood, “I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon, just some special things…great things for music, period.”
If this is true, the album will be Aaliyah’s second posthumous album. Her first, “I Care 4 U,” was released in December 2002.
J-Connection: Drake's father is an African American from Memphis, Tennessee, and Drake's mother is a white Jewish Canadian.
