As the tributes to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Aaliyah‘s passing continued to roll in Wednesday (August 25), the singer’s estate not only expressed their gratitude to her legion of diehard fans but also sent them into a frenzy with the teasing of a new project.

Taking to Instagram, reps from the ‘More Than a Woman’ diva’s estate unveiled news of a soon-to-come ‘special project.’ The post was captioned:
“It is with heavy hearts that we share this day of remembrance that marks the 20th year with all of you. We want to honor the beautiful life and legacy of Babygirl.
As a token of our love and respect for your support throughout the years, we are happy to unveil a special project that we’ve been working on. We truly believe that it embodies Aaliyah’s spirit and passion for life and her artistry.
Please head over to Aaliyah’s Official YouTube channel (⛓Link in our IG Stories) to see what we’ve been working on. We are just getting started & we hope you really feel us on this one.”
Though nondescript, the announcement was certainly enough to generate buzz.
The project may follow the recent digital release of Aaliyah’s ‘One in a Million‘ album, but it – unlike that Blackground 2.0 Records effort – will come as one of few authorized releases from the singer’s estate.
