20 anni dopo la sua morte, Aaliyah sta duettando con The Weeknd

UN “nuovo” canzone di Aaliyah ha colpito le onde radio, due decenni dopo la sua morte.

“Veleno,” che comprende anche il cantautore canadese The Weeknd, è stato presentato venerdì, marking her first release since 2012’sEnough Said.
Aaliyah sings the lines: “How can I explain myself to you? Questions keep lurking through my mind. Is it the lover for the time? I’ve given my heart, my joy, my soul to you. If it is real, I sure can’t see.
    The record serves as the first single from Aaliyah’s upcoming posthumous album, “Unstoppable,” which her uncle and former manager Barry Hankerson confirmed in August will be released next year.
      Born Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the New York native was at the height of her musical career when she died in a plane crash in August 2001, aged just 22.
        Sulla scia della sua morte, she won two posthumous awards at the 2002 American Music Awards, sold millions of records, and was credited with helping redefine R&B.
        The Weeknd previously sampled herRock the Boaton his songWhat You Need,” off his 2011 mixtapeHouse of Balloons.
          The Weeknd performs during the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on February 7, 2021.

          “Veleno” comes months after Aaliyah’s music catalog arrived on streaming services per la prima volta. A settembre, sua 2001 self-titled record, which includes the timeless songsTry Again,” “Rock the Boat,” e “We Need a Resolution,” was released on Spotify.
          The original Blackground Records, which released the majority of Aaliyah’s music, was owned by Hankerson, who is also overseeing new label Blackground Records 2.0.
          During an appearance on Atlanta radio station V-103 in August, Hankerson saidUnstoppablewould likely be the final new Aaliyah project, as the label hadexhausted our unpublished music.
          He added that he hoped that people would sample parts of songs they like toexpress themselves as artists” e “keep her music going.
          In the two decades since her death, the fascination with Aaliyah’s music and laid-back, edgy style has intensified.
          Nel 2012, hip-hop star Drake introduced a new generation of music lovers to her work after he and Noah “40” Shebib helped complete her posthumous trackEnough Said.
          Prior to the release, Drakewho has an Aaliyah tattooreferred to her as one of the biggest influences on his career.
