Drake may be a nasal-rapping brat with a wildly imbalanced ratio of talent to privilege and influence, but the man has a knack for  making his way into into associative relevance. Just before his 3rd annual OVO Festival in Toronto, the event’s blog has been updated with something a great many people have been waiting for, for a very long time: new music from Aaliyah.

Yes, unfortunately the new track from the late Grammy-nominated R&B princess does feature Drake on a verse, but the haunting "Enough Said" – delivered by Blackground Records (run by Aaliyah’s uncle and cousin) – was produced by Noah “40″ Shebib and serves as a strong reminder of what we lost in a plane crash so many years ago. 

Listen to the song below.

There's been quite a lot of negative drama surrounding Drake's plans to produce a forthcoming posthumous album for the singer, with even Timbaland coming out against the possibility in a recent interview with New York's Power 105:

"I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and Missy. …The proper way for him to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. The best decision, what the fans would want to see is all three of us. It can't be something to make money off of 'cause I think it's wrong to make money off the dead."

All told, however, he does her legacy justice with this new track – except for his own verse, which should most definitely be locked out.
