Drake's posthumous Aaliyah album featuring unreleased material from the late star has been scrapped.
Drake's posthumous Aaliyah album featuring unreleased material from the singer has been scrapped.
The rapper's producer Noah '40' Shebib was set to work with him on the project but has pulled out because her mother Diane didn't approve of the idea.
In an interview with US magazine Vibe, Noah said: ''The world reacting to Drake's involvement so negatively, I just wanted nothing to do with it.
''[Aaliyah's] mother saying 'I don't want this out' was enough for me. I walked away very quickly.''
He was also worried about the ''negative stigma'' involved with the album, which was set to feature unreleased material from the 22-year-old singer who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001.
But he claims producer Timbaland, who previously said only he should work on Aaliyah's music, was positive about his work.
Noah said: ''[Timbaland] said to me, 'Don't stop, make the album.' I think that was Tim taking the position of, 'I'm not going to stop you. If you're not going to do it, that's your decision'. But ultimately, I wasn't comfortable and didn't like the stigma.''
Aaliyah released her debut album, the R Kelly-produced 'Age Ain't Nothing But A Number', in 1994.
It was followed by 'One In A Million' two years later and her self-titled third album, which was released a month before her death, has since sold over 13 million copies.
She was killed along with eight others in a plane in The Bahamas after filming the music video for the single 'Rock the Boat'.
The pilot, Luis Morales III, was unlicensed at the time of the accident and an investigation revealed he had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his system.
