A track intended for Drake and 40’s posthumous album for Aaliyah has leaked online. Originally thought to be part of Drizzy’s upcoming More Life project (though quickly denied), Talk Is Cheap delivers one of the finest Drake cuts we’ve heard in years – think back to ‘early-Driz’ and you get the picture.
Featuring Static Major, alongside unreleased Aaliyah vocals, the track is as slick as they come. The full project, initially due for release in early 2014, was shelved some 18 months after it was initially announced back in 2012, with co-producer 40 saying “The world reacted to Drake’s involvement so negatively, I just wanted nothing to do with it. . . Ultimately, I wasn’t comfortable and didn’t like the stigma.” Aaliyah’s family also quickly removed their association from the album too.
Anyhow, back to Talk Is Cheap – catch it in full below; this one’s lush:
