The world was close to a collaboration between the late Aaliyah and the acclaimed producer Just Blaze and only now are we finding out about it.

Speaking with Fuse TV, Just Blaze revealed that was scheduled to work with both he and rapper Freeway though their planned collaboration never came to fruition due to the singer dying in her tragic plane crash.

“When Aaliyah died in that plane crash, she was on her way to come meet me and Freeway to do a remix for ‘More Than a Woman.’ She had left her video shoot. I guess it was in the Bahamas, I think,” he explained to Fuse. “We got a call saying, ‘She just got on a plane. She’ll be at the studio in an hour or two.’ Then, 20 minutes later, people are on the radio saying that she died. We didn’t believe because we had literally just got off the phone with her people. We got confirmation a few minutes later that it was true…Rest in peace to Aaliyah. Super sad.”
