Welcome back to Extended Cut — our Soundbytes segment where we take a plunge into the biggest news story of the week. Today we’re spotlighting Drake, specifically the rapper’s decision to collaborate with Aaliyah from beyond the grave. It’s no secret that Drizzy is a superfan of the late R&B singer, and now the Canadian MC is giving her the ultimate tribute via a full album. But without the help of longtime Aaliyah producers Missy Elliott and Timbaland, will the new material deliver the Aaliyah sound that fans remember? Is it better to let pop greats rest in peace or is resurrecting them the ultimate way to ensure their memory lives on? Watch as we tackle these questions as well as look at the best (and worst) posthumous duets.
