Jeffery “J. Dub” Walker, member of the award-winning production group The Hitmen, recently tweeted his excitement about a track he produced for late R&B star Aaliyah. Under any other circumstances, this would have flown under the radar, but he mentioned that the song would be included on a new Aaliyah album. He’s since deleted the tweet, but here’s what he had to say:
Just got great news today; the smash unreleased song called ‘Steady Ground’ I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album.
There’s been no confirmation from her label, however, if this were to be true, it would be the first non-compilation album since her untimely passing 11 years ago. I don’t know about you, but I’m crossing my fingers & praying that it happens. Aaliyah’s voice is timeless, and I think it would interject some much needed life into R&B.
