NEW MUSIC: Skream – Kreepin’

aaliyah

Skream has been one of my favorite producers recently, especially his work with Sam Frank. Now he comes back with a remix, I think, of probably my favorite Aaliyah song ‘If Your Girl Only Knew’. I was a bit hesitant on this at first, because it is very hard to do Aaliyah justice, but after a couple of listens, I think I like the feel of this song. It doesn’t change the song too much, it just gives it more of a dance feel that would work very well in an underground type setting fitting alongside Disclosure.

I could be extremely mistaken, and I could hate it in a couple of weeks. As of right now, I’m feeling it.

NEW MUSIC: Aaliyah – Enough Said [Ft. Drake]

YES. YES. AND MORE YES.

There has been a lot of speculation behind Drake being one of the main producers behind Aaliyah’s next album, and if he was worthy since he really had no contact with her. Timbaland and Missy Elliott have a little frustrated in not being involved in this project, but after all of that the first track to be released is ‘Enough Said’. I’m a bit hit or miss when it comes to Drake, but I have to give the man credit for this.

This masterpiece is absolutely amazing, and I’m not sure what else to say about it. Her vocals on the ‘Yeah’s’ bring back so many memories of how much of a talent she was, and the production is smooth and sexy and could easily bring tears. All that being said, the only problem I have with it is, it sounds like a Drake song instead of an Aaliyah song, Drake should have toned it down for this song since it is an Aaliyah album that he is producing and not his own.

Looking forward to hearing the project in full!

Repeat.
