Fans of late R&B chanteuse Aaliyah were sent into a frenzy today when Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker, of the famed production group The Hitmen, took to Twitter to announce (click to enlarge):
Fans may recall that Walker is the craftsman behind many favorites (‘I Refuse’, ‘I Can Be’, more) of Aaliyah’s 2001 self-titled, third venture. And, while the singer’s longtime collaborator Timbaland long revealed that the singer recorded a wealth of material for that album, only 15 made the final cut (while others featured on the singer’s posthumous greatest hits package).
Alas, while no dates have been revealed to accompany Walker’s announcement, any hints at new music from the songbird are enough to get us at TGJ headquarters excited as ‘Steady Ground’ has long been a favorite of ours.
Take a listen at the cut below (featuring contributions from the late Static Major):
The news comes shortly after Canadian singer Keshia Chante revealed the status of the ever sought ‘Aaliyah’ movie. As nearly 10 years have passed since we heard new material from Miss Haughton, we say ROLL ON new album!
Thanks Army of Queen Aaliyah for the tip!
