Drake has bolstered reports that he's producing a posthumous album by Aaliyah, posting a new song with her on his blog. "Enough Said" features Aaliyah cooing sensually over a sparse beat, with eerie, stuttering "yeah's" and a striking guest verse from Drake halfway through. 

Aaliyah was 22 when she died August 25th, 2001, in a plane crash. The Drake-produced record would be her second posthumous album, following 2002's I Care 4 U.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
