“Talk Is Cheap” Featuring Drake, Static Major And Aaliyah Surfaces


Aaliyah’s angelic voice found its way back to the world through an unreleased track featuring the late Static Major and Drizzy Drake. Titled “Talk Is Cheap,” the posthumous collaboration is a smooth ride with the perfect blend of R&B voices and a rap verse from the 6 God.

Back in 2012, we were introduced to “Enough Said,” the first exhibition of a Drake and Aaliyah collaboration, along with the idea of a posthumous Aaliyah album. After the approval of the singer’s mother, it seemed the project had been underway but it was stopped after her family had a change of heart. Timbaland who was her go-to producer, made sure to chime in on the project, telling The Breakfast Club, “I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if (Drake) do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy (Elliot).

Does this mean the project is underway or even being featured on Drake’s new More Life project coming out this month? It should be noted that the track was oddly released exactly three years after the rapper teased it on Instagram.
