New Music: Aaliyah – “Enough Said” ft. Drake

Emo rapper Drake can’t have Rihanna or Beyonce as his personal play things, so he settles for obsessing over deceased singer Aaliyah, whose beauty preceded and superseded her vocal abilities. Today, Drake released a posthumous track titled “Enough Said,” starring Aaliyah and featuring himself. “Enough Said” is not an exceptional single, but Aaliyah’s unreleased vocals takes center stage. So enough said.

From Toya’s World:

“Enough Said” would have been hotter WITHOUT Drake’s verses because using an Aaliyah record to diss Chris Brown was all sorts of tacky and took away from what would have been a beautiful tribute (“Selling under 150, you ni**as gotta be kidding”). How dare his corny ass use this precious moment to take shots at another artist. Who the hell does he think he is? I want a solo version with just her vocals.

I still argue my point that only Timbaland and Missy should have been doing this because Drake’s infatuation with her goes beyond creepy (she never knew him). Saying that, it’s nice hearing Aaliyah on 2012 production. Concertgoers can catch Drake performing the song live for the first time tonight at OVO Fest in Toronto.

      I guess it’s cool to hear something new from Aaliyah but I wasn’t really feeling this one.

      Posthumous singles always disappoint. I mean, if it was any good, it would’ve been out already.

      Not even the dead can’t escape her shade.

      Can’t really say I am disappointed because this is a typical Aaliyah track. People forget that her last album only sold because she died because it was struggling in sales before her untimely death. Apparently her estate is desperate for cash cause they sold the rights to her unreleased tracks to drake to executive produce so oh well, prepare for more of this. With the exception of a couple of tracks, majority of Aaliyah music I could have lived without

      The song could have gone without Aubrey’s vocals.

      Love it! Glad we get to hear some of the unreleased material. @Kittle – I noticed that too…. I got to meet her a month before the accident and she was definitely beautiful, but her voice was as well.

      It sounds decent. Gonna listen to the rest in the am. @Sassyshe are you the original Sassy aka dougie? I remember in August 2001 right before she died, she was number 2 behind Alicia Keys debut album. I remember being upset because Foxy Brown was number 5 and I wanted her to be number one at the time. Her estate is not struggling though.

      Um this track goes hard…that is until Drake starts rapping…..

      Idk why ppl are still hating on Aaliyah or her vocals. She was talented and could def sing, she just had a soft higher voice, you know the style that artists like Ashanti tried to imitate (no shade though). I heard her sing acapella plenty of times and her version of Ave Maria is better than most of the other artists that have done it.

      Anywho, there are diff types of voices, different styles of singing. Everyone doesn’t have to sing a certain way to be good. And I still get down to my old Aaliyah cd’s….all of em! :danban:

      @Walking, no ur not lmao. To this day I know that routine by heart…

      Umm @topic, kill yaself Drake. U should never have been considered for a duet with Aaliyah. Ur wack ass potty mouth verse goes to show u didn’t know SHAT bout her music….ugh.

      I got chills hearing new music from her. RIP Babygirl. I loved me some Liy Liy

      Now lemme get up out this post because I cannot deal with ANY Aaliyah bashing…..ANY.

      Morning All!

      :cosign: I hate on any song when somebody jump on a track and and their verse has nothing to do with the song, like why do that and plus, I do not like Drake voice at all :nono: , sorry

      Yep, I did too and still to this day know some of the dance. Matter of fact, I was jamming to that song last week.

      he is pretty obsessed with her :no:

      i liked aaliyah, then and i still jam her stuff now. sure she wasn’t the strongest vocalist but she was a performer (like janet and madonna who i think can’t sing either but they have mass appeal).

      i also don’t get why ppl always have to bring in the ‘if aaliyah hadn’t died beyonce wouldn’t be a star’ etc. both existed in the music industry and destiny’s child was doing well while aaliyah was alive. i don’t understand why it has to be one or the other. more than one person can be successful at a time in R&B. is it that hard to talk about another singer and not bring up beyonce (either good or bad)? :no:

      ***************************

      Ironically I bought it hours before the announcement of her death. Call me crazy, but I like the track. If Timbo and Missy wanted to do it then they should have. It’s not Drake’s fault that they didn’t think to do something with her unreleased tracks.

      So my local news station re-reported a story about Gabby Douglas filing for bankruptcy. Folks been going in on their Facebook ever since. Folks are HOT. I just don’t know why folks can’t just be happy.

      BOOGIE :hi: is it ironic that he was on a show called Degrassi High old as hell and the nigguh didn’t even have a high school diploma…sad

      @LOVEZOE – misery loves company…why they’re all up in that family’s finances is crazy to me but people refuse to let a child, yes child you ignorant m-effers, live in the moment…but she’s got a strong family so I’m certain they’ll just continue to climb over the haters

      TMZ put that mess out. They also put out a story about Lochte’s parents filing bankruptcy. I personally don’t care about the financial status of Olympic parents. In fact I don’t care to hear any bad news about the Olympians during the games. But it’s all good because no news can overshadow their accomplishments for me right now.

      Last night’s 100m men’s final was the bomb!

      lovezoe says:

      Bird- Yeah. It’s just her hometown is reporting on it, just like they interviewed the former coach saying they owe her money and Gabby don’t realize how they got her where she is without them.

      tnwill777 says:

      The media has been trying to go in on the black athletes at the Olympics. Every little thing they do is being watched under a microscope it seems like. They trying to find every negative thing they can to blast them about.

      Gabrielle and her finances and hair

      Lebron getting turned down for a date, which was a trending topic on Yahoo

      and the other day I saw they were going in on Serena for “crip walking” after her win.

      :rofl: at His….

      And yeah this whole only one can be on top is a woman thing. If you notice, no one does this with male rap artists…how many of them are out? Yet we get stuck with Nicki Minaj and anyone else who tries to come out or return is shaded to hell….same thing with R&B, usually it’s the Beyonce stans who are fisrt to say “she ain’t no Beyonce” or “Beyonce is the best and no one else compares” That is bull….especially if you like lyrics deeper than a nursery rhyme….and this is no shade I’m just qualifying her music as it seems to me

      Aaliyah’s voice sounds like she recorded this yesterday, amazing to realize her voice has not spoken a word on this Earth for 11 years, so it’s nice to hear it. Drake needs to stop with all the cursin’ Aaliyah’s voice and his profanity does not go together.
