Producer Jeffrey 'J. Dub' Walker tweets, 'the smash unreleased song called 'Steady Ground' I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album:).'
It's confirmed, a new Aaliyah album featuring her unreleased songs is underway. It will be her first non-compilation CD since the "Rock the Boat" singer passed away eleven years ago. One of the materials in the upcoming effort is a song called "Steady Ground".
The news was brought to attention by producer Jeffrey "J. Dub" Walker, who worked on her 2001 self-titled album "Aaliyah". He tweeted on March 4, "Just got great news today; the smash unreleased song called 'Steady Ground' I produced on #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album:)."
The song, intended for the 2001 eponymous album, actually has leaked on the internet since a long time ago. "It was really the first single after 'Rock the Boat', but my engineer was mixing the record and somehow lost the vocals," he opened up to YouKnowIGotSoul. "So the vocals that you hear are really just the demo vocals. The final vocals got erased, so yeah. So that's why it didn't make the album."
