The rollout is officially beginning for Aaliyah’s posthumous studio album, which has been teased for much of this year. The first single from the project was reportedly revealed by HitsDailyDouble, which reports that a song called “Poison” featuring The Weeknd is being sent to urban radio.

According to the website’s list of songs that are quickly being added to radio programming across the country, the top result was Aaliyah’s unreleased single “Poison” with The Weeknd, which will drop via Blackground 2.0. It’s presently unclear when the song will be released but if it’s already being sent to radio, it’s likely that it will arrive very soon.
