Aaliyah’s Brother Says Her Family Doesn’t Support A Posthumous Album
The industry has been buzzing ever since news emerged that Drake could possibly be producing Aaliyah‘s first posthumous album. The Young Money emcee even unveiled a previously unreleased Aaliyah track featuring a verse he contributed called “Enough Said” over the weekend. Although many of Aaliyah’s fans were happy to hear that a new project may possibly be in the works, the late singer’s family isn’t exactly embracing the news. On Monday, her beloved brother, Rashad Haughton, announced on Facebook that his family isn’t in support of the much talked-about project. He said:
“there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.” -Rashad Haughton (regarding upcoming album release rumors)
Rashad also shot down rumors that a biopic about his sister was currently in the works, saying:
“No female I’ve seen can play my sister.” -Rashad
News emerged over five years ago that there would be a movie about Aaliyah’s life. Although names such as Meagan Good and Keshia Chante have all been thrown around as candidates who could possibly take on the job of portraying the “Rock the Boat” singer on the big screen, it doesn’t appear that we’re any closer to actually seeing an Aaliyah biopic come to fruition.
