The Dream is officially tripping. He’s gotten way ahead of himself by remaking the late great Aaliyah’s hit song “One In a Million.” I mean what on earth was this guy thinking. This cover probably shouldn’t have been released for the streets and it better not make his album or he should be prepared for a royal riot. Check out a few comments from outrages Aaliyah fans below:

BOOOO! Leave Aaliyah’s music alone! Next!
In lieu of the negative response, he took to his Twitter page to address the haters and explain why he remade the song. “No one will ever [sing] Aaliyah’s ‘One In A Million’ like she did! Deff not me lol,” he tweeted. “I did it because I Reilly miss her still and it was out of respect! To her I’m still just a fan not a writer not an artist a Fan! Calm down the worlds not over. But [at least] y’all will remember how dope she was and still is to this day!”
