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.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
