New Aaliyah album on the way, producer claims | Music News

March 5th, 2012 | by Max-El


Eleven years after her tragic and untimely death, beloved R&B songbird Aaliyah Haughton will be releasing a new album, producer Jeffery “J. Dub” Walker announced via Twitter on Sunday.

While details are scant, Walker, a member of famed production team The Hitmen, claims to have received news that an unreleased song he produced for the late singer years ago called “Steady Ground” would be featured on her upcoming album.

He did not say from whom this news came or offer any other information regarding the project, and, as of press time, his news had not yet been confirmed by Aaliyah’s label, the Interscope-distributed Blackground Records.

Until that confirmation comes, we can only keep our fingers crossed and hope that a full-length album of unreleased material really is on the way.

Aaliyah’s previous posthumous albums, 2002’s I Care For You and 2005’s Ultimate Aaliyah, are both best-ofs, though the former also contained three songs that were previously unreleased.

SoulCulture will continue to follow this story.
