Rihanna isn't the only thing Chris Brown and Drake have in common; they both seem to be huge fans of the late Aaliyah.
According to reports, Chris Brown invaded LA with his entourage on Sunday to shoot a music video for his alleged new single ‘Don’t Think They Know'; dedicated to the late Aaliyah.
The song which features unheard Aaliyah vocals was shot in Compton, E! Online reports. Brown was pictured shirtless sitting on a rooftop surrounded by his shirtless entourage, seemingly recreating an old gangster rap scene.
Aaliyah, a recording artist, actress and a model, was killed in a plane crash along with eight other passengers, on August 25, 2001. She was 22.
The award-winning singer was known for her hits 'Rock the boat' and 'Age and nothing but a number' as well as her movie role starring alongside Jet Li in 'Romeo must die'.
In 2012 Young Money rapper and Chris Brown’ archenemy, Drake, delighted fans of the late Aaliyah when he released her posthumous single 'Enough said'.
According to E! Online, Drake who is featured on the track had been working on the song for quite some time and judging by fans of Aaliyah, it was worth the wait.
Drake who is a fan of Aaliyah himself and has a tattoo of the singer's face on his back to prove it, reportedly hinted at the project to Tim Westwood while promoting his tour last April.

"I have some great Aaliyah news coming soon, some special things ... great things man -great things for music, period,” he said.
Though some fans were excited about the collaboration, not everyone was thrilled by it.
Music producer Timbaland, who co-produced Aaliyah's second album with female rapper Missy Elliot told a New York radio station:
"I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if he do it, it should be with me and Missy."
"The proper way for him to do that would be for me, him and Missy to be all on the record. The best decision, what the fans would want to see is all three of us. It can't be something to make money off ....I think it's wrong to make money off the dead," Timbaland was quoted by Daily Mail as saying.
