Unreleased Aaliyah Material May Be Coming Soon

Later this month, the music world will mark the 14 year anniversary of Aaliyah‘s tragic death. Lost in a plane crash in the Bahamas, at the age of only 22, Aaliyah had become a guiding light for R&B in her all-to-brief career. Mentored by numerous producers, including Timbaland, her talent belied her age, and now, over a decade later, we may be getting the chance to hear more of it.

In an photo posted to Instagram Saturday, Timbaland expressed his continuing grief and admiration for Aaliyah, then hinted that previously unheard material of hers may in fact be headed our way soon. “People ask me all the time do I have any babegirl music we haven’t heard,” Timbaland wrote. “Well the answer is YES!!!!!!!! TIMBO x BABEGIRL !!!!! Sneak peak coming!” If Timbaland’s promises turn out to be true, the music would serve as the first “new to us” offering from Aaliyah’s catalog since Tink’s “Million,” which flipped her classic hook from 1996’s “One In A Million.” Hopefully, though, Timbaland is referring to completely unused, original tracks, as we know we’re surely not the only ones who would be on cloud nine to hear fresh sounds from the lost queen of modern music. Stay tuned..
