Many fans are celebrating the fact that Drake released a collaboration with Aaliyah — 11 years after her death — with ‘Enough Said.’ But is a potential Chris diss on the track souring what should be an exciting posthumous comeback? Read on to find out all the details!
Drake has been hinting of a collaboration with Aaliyah since March — using unheard vocals from the late singer. Following an initial celebration of the “Enough Said’s” release, fans are furious that Drake potentially dissed Chris Brown in his featured verse.
Drake raps, “Selling under 150, you ni—s gotta be kidding, is this even a discussion?” Of course, that line could refer to any one of today’s rappers, but Chris released his Fortune album last month, selling 135,000 copies during its first week, compared to Drake’s take of 600,000 with Take Care.
Fans seem to think that Drake IS dissing Chris on the track. A few listeners said:
@toyas_world It was disrespectful that Drake chose an Aaliyah track to diss Chris Brown. There is a time & place for everything & this wasn’t it.
@In_Boss_U_Trust Is the Drake song with Aaliyah in it really a diss to Chris Brown cuz if so, that’s disrespectful
@Cazba21 Now I love Drake but not sure reworking Aaliyah for 10 year anniversary and “dissing” Chris Brown in it is really in the right spirit!
We have to agree. We love the newly released track, but using the hyped collaboration for a stab at Chris seems inappropriate.
Drake also dissed Chris during an interview in The Jewish Chronicle when he stated, “I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.” Ouch!
