Given Aaliyah’s full slate of film work, fans of the R&B singer might be wondering if she’d ever deliver her third album.
But she is expected to deliver the still-untitled effort June 5, after she drops the single “We Need a Resolution,” on April 13.
Timbaland produced and appears on the single, which was written by Static (who penned previous Aaliyah hits “Try Again” and “Are You That Somebody”). The singer will shoot the video for “We Need a Resolution” in Los Angeles next week, according to her publicist.
Aaliyah has said that the album, her first since 1996′s One In a Million, will also feature a guest appearance by DMX (see “Aaliyah Finishes New Album During Break From Movies “).
This summer, she’ll return to Australia, where she shot her title role in “Queen of the Damned,” to work on the two sequels to the popular sci-fi flick “The Matrix.” Based on the third novel in Anne Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles,” “Queen of the Damned” is due out this fall. “The Matrix 2″ is tentatively set for summer 2002 release.
