Trey Songz Weighs In on Aaliyah Album, Impersonates Jay-Z

Trey Songz

While the debate over a new Aaliyah album rages on, Drake’s good friend Trey Songz shares his thoughts on the Aaliyah-Drake collaboration “Enough Said,” and who he thinks should produce the posthumous project.

“I think the song is dope,” Trey told WiLD 94.9. “It’s good to hear Aaliyah’s voice. Just the concept of the song was dope and just to hear her singing completely unheard lyrics was amazing to me. I didn’t really judge it from a place like is it good enough, I was just happy to hear it.”

It was announced that Drake and Noah “40” Shebib will executive produce the album, but Trey would like to see Timbaland and Missy Elliott on board as well. “I think it would be dope if Timbaland and Missy did it though,” he continued. “I think that’s the best way to do it, but you don’t know the particulars on what’s going around. You don’t know who owns her music, you don’t know any of that. So I don’t get to talking about stuff I don’t know about.”

Trey, whose album Chapter V drops on August 21, also did his best Jay-Z impression (starting at the 7:55 mark). Check out the hilarious clip below.

    @Imani, no he does not.

    Anyway, I have to agree with my boo though on Timbaland and Missy should be on the track. I mean, Hello (In my Hilary Banks’ voice) they were Aaliyah’s friends and her co-workers in the business. They were on her albums after her departure with R. Kelly. If this project does go through and Drake doesn’t put/let/allow Timbaland and Missy on the project then it wouldn’t be the same and I think that Aaliyah would want Timbaland and Missy to be on it.

    @Issa, Her part was cool his verse was disappointing. We all have heard him do better on other females songs. He should had done better. You’ll say people hating but, you know I am right.

    He could have become the king of R&B at the beginning of his career, but now all these potentially great R&B singers are turning to pop music. Thank god for Frank Ocean and The Weeknd, bringing it back!!!
