The upcoming album will include new music from the late singer, for the first time in 15 years. In a recent interview with on-air personality Geno Jones, Hankerson revealed that Snoop Dogg, Future, Ne-Yo, Drake, and Chris Brown will also be featured on the project.
“About five years ago we realized we had quite a bit of music that we had never put out that was recorded by Aaliyah,” Hankerson expressed on The Geno Jones Show. Hankerson additionally shared that Unstoppable will have a Timbaland-produced track. However, fellow longtime Aaliyah collaborator Missy Elliott won’t be involved with the project.
Fans can expect a hybrid of Hip Hop and R&B on Unstoppable, with remastered Aaliyah vocals. “I think she would be very happy with the selections we made and the guests because the artists themselves made it known to us how much they wanted to work with her and be a part of her legacy,” Hankerson previously told Billboard.
Last year, Aaliyah’s entire catalog was finally released on streaming services. After a partnership between the relaunched Background Records and Empire. One in a Million and her self-titled album even peaked on the Billboard 200 charts—20 years later.
