Drake has never been shy about his love for Aaliyah. The “Take Care” rapper has tattooed the late singer’s face on his back and sampled her song on his debut Thank Me Later. While he never got a chance to work with her while she was alive, he revealed that a posthumous collaboration may be in the works.
“I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon. Some special things,” the 25-year-old told Tim Westwood.
When asked if it had to do with a rumored posthumous project of her unreleased recordings, he remained coy. “Just some special things, you know. Great things for music, period.”
Drizzy shared his admiration for the “Try Again” songstress, who passed away at the age of 22. “I think more than anything Aaliyah always made music that was never uncomfortable for me to listen to,” he explained.
“You know it’s hard for me to ride around to a female singer because at the end of the day, you’re a man, but she always kept it so G with the writing and the melodies. It was something to ride to, especially when it was chopped and crewed. That’s when I used to love Aaliyah the most.”

Earlier this month Monica delivered a performance for AOL Sessions, which will debut on TheBoombox.com April 5.

In the clip, Monica shares her enthusiasm for making the music that has put her on the top of the charts. “When I’m working, I give it 100 percent, because it’s a blessing to do what you love,” she tells The Boombox. “There’s a lot of people in their jobs everyday who are not happy.”
