Which you probably assumed, given that it's been over a year since we heard anything about the posthumous album. But Drake's music guru Noah "40" Shebib confirms it: "The world reacting to Drake’s involvement so negatively, I just wanted nothing to do with it … We released [“Enough Said”], but I was seven songs deep. [Aaliyah’s] mother saying 'I don’t want this out' was enough for me. I walked away very quickly." Seven songs, you say?
