Today marks the 10th anniversary of the untimely passing of R&B starlet Aaliyah.  Introduced as R&B ringleader R. Kelly‘s protege at the young age of 14, the Detroit native precedented an R&B teen movement, leading the way for fellow female divas-in-training Brandy and Monica to share chart success.  By the time she reached sweet 17 the ‘Hot Like Fire’ singer’s rise to prominence was imminent as she turned up the heat in her videos and on the charts.  With then-little-known super-producer team Timbaland and Missy Elliott at the helm lacing the accompaniment for her angelic falsetto, Aaliyah found herself in a league of her own with substance, sass, and style.

Just two multi-platinum albums, a host of hit singles, and the respect of her peers, the millennium’s end saw the ‘Journey to the Past’ singer’s journey really just beginning as, at the ripe age of 21, she’d already more accomplished than many musicians achieve their whole careers.  And, after an extended break, the pressure was on to see if the singer could match her 90s success.

Enter ‘Aaliyah’ – her self-titled 3rd album.  Preceded by the #1 single ‘Try Again’, the singer was about to do just that in a whole new way.  ‘At her best’ indeed; sophisticated lyrics, ‘grown woman’ sexy, while staying true to her signature sound, the new millennium was introduced to a new Aaliyah.  And, fans’ embrace was immediately evident.

With the album’s lead single ‘We Need A Resolution’ making a splash on the charts and its successor ‘More Than A Woman’ completed and ready for take off, Aaliyah thought to make a splash herself and took off to the Bahamas to shoot the visual for island-groove ‘Rock the Boat’.  Joined by BET’s ‘Access Granted’, the usually private starlet let fans into see the makings of what was sure to be her next hit on the charts…


We all know the story from there.  None of us would’ve guessed it would’ve been our last time seeing Miss Haughton.  And, to say a void has been left in music since her departure, specifically Urban Pop, is unquestionable.  While we’ve seen some come close, those who grew up with and love her music know there is no duplication.

She was ‘One In a Million’ indeed.

BET’s ‘Aaliyah: One In A Million’, featuring an all-star cast of contributors,  will air tonight, August 25th at 8pm ET.

    I remember watching the behind the scenes filming of RTB back in 2001(one of my faves by Liyah,) as Hype W. was filming the under water scene and Aaliyah looked both pure and beautiful.

    I miiiissssss her. God rest and I’m sure she’s in heaven where she belongs. xoxoxo

    I love Aaliyah and I wish she was here today.Her career was short but extraordinary and she delivered some true urban classics.The sad thing is that she was just about to dominate.Her image was evolving, her music was becoming more experimental (trip hop influences in her 3rd album- just WOW) and her videos were developping and becoming even slicker.I will always remember her and her music and legacy will live on.May her soul rest in peace…

    Today marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of angel Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Born on January 16th, 1979, Aaliyah blessed us with her angelic voice, her beautiful spirit, and her silky smooth dance moves. I was in 9th grade when I heard of her death and till this day I still can’t believe she is gone. RIP Baby Girl.

    P.S. – I still bump your debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number” to this day. A pure classic! They don’t make music like that anymore. Music misses you, your fans miss you and her legacy will live on forever. You truly are One In A Million!

    8/25/2001 – The day we truly gained an angel.

I remember watching her promote AALIYAH the album and she seemed so down to earth and very happy. I remember she told MTV Diary that….if she died …she would want her legacy to live on and still be remembered 10 years from then and on. Its so crazy that she later died that year and her legacy is shinning like the Angel she is. There will neva b another! Her music will definitely live on! Tears.. R.I.P FOREVER AALIYAH

    Every one is so saddened yes! reality check! If Aaliyah was alive today don’t you think that she would receive hate by the media and some public today because of her success growth? She died at 21 @ 31, she may have been going though the same s*** all the popular stars go through now. It is so sickening how people come out only when someone has passed and share all stories.
    Perfect example – MJ , and Amy Winehouse, it is just amazing how much love the dead gets.

I know that everything happens for a reason but the music industry lost a great treasure. I hope the special they have on BET tonight will be in good taste because she deserves nothing but the best!

    It is way to crazy to think that 10 years have passed.

    Like I remember hearing about this in middle school, and now I’m a college graduate!

    Definitely interesting to think what Aaliyah would be doing right now if she were still alive. Would she have made the switch to acting full time, released X# albums over the years, etc.

    She did have some great music in the 90s and even early 2000s before her life was cut short. “One In A Million” is one of many classic 90s R&B jams she had! “Rock The Boat” was my favorite single off her 3rd album ‘Aaliyah’ too!

    RIP Aaliayh and may your family remain strong without your presence.

    Miss her too, but let’s be honest. She trailed the path both Monica and Brandy blazed. She was always # 3 behind them, but her star was fast approaching both there’s. Wish she could’ve lived to truly see if her position changed in music!

    I just had to leave a comment to thank EVERYONE who commented on this post! This is sadly THE ONLY memorial post where everyone kept it classy & respectful. It amazes me how many evil, hateful & malevolent people there are just waiting to spew their venom on to the masses.

    With that being said I cracked a smile watching her “More Than a Woman” video. She was truly coming into her own as a woman. I think my fav video of hers was… We need a resolution… She looked FLAWLESS!!! With my least fav video being the “I Miss You”… ONLY bc when I 1st saw it it made me sooooo depressed. I kept thinking that Missy looked so EMPTY & LOST… It was just so sad to see that.

    @yeabey love aaliyah wow, that’s horrible. But ppl will always be trolls. It’s very sickening and disgusting how inhumane ppl can be. But don’t give ppl like that attention. They are just losers with no purpose in their life.

    She went out and captured life, not letting anything stand in her way, including her youth. http://bit.ly/pbtDM4

    Aaliyah’s death was the most shocking celebrity death to me, because I was actually a big fan of her music when she was alive.

    When I was first told of the terrible news, I thought it was a joke. I thought there is no way Aaliyah died.

    It was sad. Aaliyah was cool, her music was bad@ss. I LOVED the “Try Again” single soooooo much + “We Need A Resolution”! And that movie she did with Jet Li!

    I still listen to her music today.
