Aaliyah & The Weeknd Blend Effortlessly On “Poison”
Aaliyah’s uncle, Barry Hankerson, promised that a new, posthumous album from his late niece will also include features from Drake and Chris Brown.
“Poison” has been teased all week as fans have been counting down the days to its release. The Weeknd has previously sampled Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat,” so seeing this track come together is a bit of a full circle.
“I’m so excited to share this new song by Aaliyah and the very talented The Weeknd,” said Hankerson. “I wanted her adoring fans to get a special gift before the holidays and felt it was the perfect time to release a never-before-heard offering.” Stream “Poison” and let us know what you think.
