bey-aaliyah

Today marks the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah‘s passing in a tragic plane crash.

With the world remembering the late, great songstress, so too is superstar Beyonce.

Though Aaliyah’s career set sail earlier than Mrs Carter’s, they both begun to experience intense success around the same time. A reality which birthed comparisons that have yet to quell till this day.

Throughout it all, though, the ladies were always fond of one another. A fact Bey celebrated today as she saluted the departed diva.

Full story below…

Taking to Instagram, she shared a throwback clip of herself chatting with the ‘Rock The Boat’ singer on the carpet of an MTV show she hosted.

A video posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Sweet.

      Aaliyah was so modern and minimalist in her approach to music – just like Sade…mysterious, captivating and beyond gorgeous! She would obviously SLAY in 2016’s avant-garde R&B scene, because she’s BEEN avant-garde since she was a teenager! If Your Girl Only Knew could come out TOMORROW lol…it hasn’t aged a bit…timeless…

      • Royalkev August 25, 2016

        If ‘Your Girl Only Knew’ might be my favorite Aaliyah track (followed by ‘Are You That Somebody’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna’)! She sounds so ice cold and s*** at the same time on that song! … Btw, D’Angelo had it so good to have Bey and Aaliyah drooling over him at one time! 🙂

    • Grayna August 25, 2016

      Humility has always been what people loved in beyonce, hope she keeps being so even if she is the icon that she is today.

      Agreed, actually it’s not successful, it’s beyond mesure!

  3. B_Roni August 25, 2016

    Lmfaooo. She has some ratchet moment but for some reason I like those sides of bey and rih.

    Damn Aaliyah was so beautiful!

    • Fancy BISH August 25, 2016

      Miss Aaliyah Dana Haughton NEVER had an awkward phase or anything chile…she was beautiful from the jump! I’ve never seen someone look exactly the same in all my life…her and Prince..

  5. HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

    QUEEN of paying homage to those that came before her!!! ?????

    • kwinzy August 25, 2016

      Very true. I love Bey for her humility. She ain’t stuck up for pay homage whether it’s Tina Turner, Diana Ross or Aaliyah. Nothing but love & respect.

    • Royalkev August 25, 2016

      No lies told!

  6. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 25, 2016

    This is such a classic clip! I gave Aaliyah a nice memorial on my Facebook page. I used my favorite picture of her dressed down in Tommy Hilfigure crop top and baggy jeans! So had so much ahead of her but, life had other plans! Continue to R.I.P. ???? in respect for her anniversary I will be staying away from any Stan wars!

  7. jaiduna August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah was way more talented than Beyonce. Her acting skills and vocals and dance moves make Beyonka look like the hood trash she is !!!!!

    • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

      Lmao what Slavi member is this?

    • Baddiebeymyfav August 25, 2016

      You need to watch your mouth or you’ll end six feet under like Ms Aaliyah. Keep it cute bxxtch.?

        ………..And the FBI will trace your a** for this comment and your afflliations. K eep playing the donkey; since you don’t know who you’re talking to…….Check first mkay because your ego will put you 6 figures in a hole.

  8. Auntie_Jackie August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah is beloved and had monster success in film and music. She and Beyonce are so different – back in those days everyone wasn’t a carbon copy of one another with the same stylists, writers and producers. Comparing Beyonce and Aaliyah is futile, especially since Aaliyah was a star long before Beyonce and died way before they were even close to the same level.

  9. jaiduna August 25, 2016

    Yasss AAliyah was very beAUTIFUL,MARKETABLE AND COULD DANVE HER ASS OFF!!!

  10. jaiduna August 25, 2016

    DANCE

  11. Barb B**** August 25, 2016

    How nice of Queen Bey. Im just waiting for all the bitter Aaliyah fans and Beyonce haters to come arrive with their ‘If Aaliyah as alive she wouldve been bigger than Beyonce, Aaliyah was so much better than Beyonce’ Bullish

    Beyonce is Qweeen you b****** will DEAL.

  12. Danzou August 25, 2016

    I hate the bey versus aaliyah argument because they were cool. Not to mention Beyoncé never acted like aaliyah wasn’t her superior. And that’s ok. The truth is that Beyoncé WOULDN’T be in her spot had aaliyah lived. She’s so beloved by everybody that he culture would have put her before bey BUT I think bey would have caught up and they’d be neck and neck. Kinda like how bey and rih are.

    • Barb B**** August 25, 2016

      Shut up! That aint the thruth thats just how you see it. You don’t know what would have happened. Yall probably would be saying the same if Brandy died.

      • Danzou August 25, 2016

        Lol calm yo ass down. Do yall know how to have a civilized convo? Anyway to answer your response h** brandy was selling just fine until she car crashed. Not to mention brandy was selling more than both of them at that time so shut up. The lane that bet and aaliyah occupied was gonna eventually be handed to aaliyah. Bey wasn’t in movies like romeo must die. Bey wasn’t already selling millions solo since fifteen like brandy and aaliyah. Brandy owned the 90s along with aaliyah. People didn’t like Beyoncé then they liked destiny’s child and it was obvious what destiny’s child was meant to do and all at the same time destiny’s child was getting outsold by tlc. Shut up.

      • Barb B**** August 25, 2016

        Beyonce went solo after Aaliyah died and her debut outsold all Aaliyahs albums just like DC were outselling Aaliyah when she was alive. All this come down to is stop acting like you have some kind of sixth sense because when you compare numbers and cultural impact there is nothing to support this dream argument that Beyonce wouldn’t be in exactly the same place she is now if Aaliyah was still alive. Her numbers were a flop for someone in the 90s.

      • Danzou August 25, 2016

        @barb she WOULDN’T.

      • A&R August 26, 2016

        Wait, this made me lol????

      • Barb B**** August 26, 2016

        @Dabzaoh shoulda woulda coulda…

  13. Danzou August 25, 2016

    But honestly I don’t know. Brandy was outselling aaliyah her whole career so I wonder what the dynamic of the industry would be.

    • Music August 25, 2016

      Child not you bringing up brandys inflated ass album sales lol

      Age Aint nothing but a number sold 3 million in the united states and 6 million worldwide

      Brandy’s self titled sold 2.1 million in the united states and 6 million worldwide and as you can see her label over certified her albums

      One in a million 3 million in the united states and 8 million worldwide.

      Never say never 4.6 million in the united states and an inflated/ over certfified fake 16 million worldwide

      And ps billboard confirmed that age And one in a million sold 3 million copies by july 20th 2001

      http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/79059/aaliyah-returns-to-music

    • Danzou August 25, 2016

      Aaliyah sold more than brandy the same way adele and Taylor outsold Beyoncé but who had more cultural impact and is still recognized as the queen? Exactly h** so shut the f*** up. BRANDY OUTSOLD AALIYAH. DEAL.

  14. Kyle August 25, 2016

    Aaww how sweet. She was so beautiful, Way more than Beyoncé Lol. I’ll admit Beyonce would still be successful if Aaliyah was alive, But not as big as she is. Trust me!!!

  15. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

    Bey loves Aaliyah her stans can now stop attacking Liyah.

    • Barb B**** August 25, 2016

      Shut your phoney ass up. You used to attack Aaliyah worst than the Hive ?

      • MsYonce August 25, 2016

        The maid is a fake flip flopping w****

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

        I don’t do that anymore it’s tacky. The hive members like Failbeysus,Tyrat, Beynavy,and Analplug are constantly dragging Aaliyah.

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

        @MrYaki your pressed I always own up to my shitttt

      • Barb B**** August 25, 2016

        Lmao your fake personality is tacky because you still come for peoples faves. You’re not fooling anyone keep it real and stop being phoney ass fake b****.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        HeHe is pretty much a carbon copy of Aaliyah but did that ever prevent your ratchet ass from dragging her? OR NAH.

  16. #JACKIE August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah was beautiful. She made Beyonce look like country bamma trash. Beyonce was more talented though and DC were outselling her in 2001. #facts

    • Danzou August 25, 2016

      I don’t think bey was more talented. Aaliyah could act and sing and dance and model.

      • #JACKIE August 25, 2016

        Aaliyah was gorgeous. One of the most beautiful singers ever. She had a pretty voice but she wasn’t a good live performer at all.

    • MsYonce August 25, 2016

      Stop trying to start something just let it go

      • #JACKIE August 25, 2016

        Umm sweetheart it’s already been started so I added my two cents. ?

  17. Brandys Starr August 25, 2016

    Beyonce is very sweet. She loved Aaliyah.

  18. Briano August 25, 2016

    Has this fake bush said anything about Louisiana yet fake a** user using Katrina imagery now flatline

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 25, 2016

      Tina Knowles posted on her Instagram page and set up a link to donate towards the “Save the Children Gulf Coast Flood Childrens Relief Fund”. Considering they have family in New Orleans I’m sure Beyonce had donated privately. The real question is have you donated anything since you are so concerned?

      • Briano August 25, 2016

        Fake fake and more fake

        Oh now crickets lol

        Where them so called billion at? Indebted clowns pushing poison on the community

        Aaliyah would never degrade bw like beysellout or say some white supremist crap like “good hair”

        I would take aaliyah over beybootypopper any day of the week

  19. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

    “Aaliyah was beautiful. She made Beyonce look like country bamma trash.”

    I screamed ??

    • Grayna August 25, 2016

      Yeah just like selena, queen of screaming.

    • Grayna August 25, 2016

      Btw, does selena have a green card? Or is she still from merhico?

  20. Briano August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah would have never recorded the crap this illiterate pawn loser has

    Aaliyah would never put out an anti education message, she was valedictorian of her high school

  21. HELP August 25, 2016

    check out Bottlekapp.com for men fashion USA

  22. Briano August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah had more to offer than being a c****** popper and spewer of harmful messages

    Aaliyah was so cool, actually sweet not a fake this loser, and naturally beautiful with great natural hair…she didn’t need a lace front she just used a few tracks here and there

  23. #TeamTinashe Stan August 25, 2016

    Watch as people on here make troll accounts to say “Beyonce wouldn’t be blah blah blah….” and she was “overrated” just to entertain themselves.

    Anyways Aaliyah was a Young Queen that cemented her legacy and accomplished a lot that many couldn’t at her age range when she was here. I was her biggest fan and it took me 11 years to appreciate another artist until Tinashe happened for me.
    Long live the queen of smooth as she created her own type of vibe of dancing that made her different from Janet and others.
    Also to me she was a great singer and had huge potential to become bigger and better and be the one to take over after Janet’s lengthy reign was slowing down.
    God had other plans. Love you forever!

    • Grayna August 25, 2016

      Her biggest fan? How old are you?

  24. Mark111 /.\ August 25, 2016

    Beyonce is such a class act. I love that she’s paying tribute to a pile of ashes.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan August 25, 2016

      Wow and you’re suppose to be an Aaliyah fan or did you supposedly forget to use your troll account?

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 25, 2016

      WTF

  25. #JACKIE August 25, 2016

    Anyway! RIP to Aaliyah *plays I Don’t Wanna*

  26. King B August 25, 2016

    RIP Aaliyah. This personality of Bey is what I like. She loves everyone. No wonder everyone likes her!

    • SippingmyTea ☕ August 25, 2016

      it would have been nice if they had done a song together!

  27. Briano August 25, 2016

    Stop lying everybody does not like beyfake …..at all

    • Baddiebeymyfav August 25, 2016

      BEYOnCE dosen’t give a f*** if you like her or not . You could die today and you’ll still remain a none fawking factor to her! Lol

  28. Blabla August 25, 2016

    Y’all a lifetime miserable mess if you come with comments like she better than her and this girl outsell her than this and that… What the f*** is wrong with you guys?!

    Beyoncé did a nice memorable on Instagram because she passed on this day. The one thing you’ll should be worried is about your own career. Stans are so depressed I can’t believe. Anyway thx bee ?

  29. RIP August 25, 2016

    So you all really can’t pay your respects without bad mouthing Beyonce?
    I find it so funny that these youngsters(weren’t even alive when she was here or in her prime or were babies.) and her deluded fans have came up with this delusional claim that Beyonce wouldn’t be Beyonce if Aaliyah was around, when Beyonce was already Beyonce while Aaliyah was alive.
    Who knows what would’ve happened if she lived, but one thing for certain is that Beyonce was going to be a star, she already was.The only artist who might not be where they are now is Ashanti and Ciara and to a certain extent Rihanna.
    Aaliyah is an R&B icon and should be respected by her own merits, not by bringing others down.Aaliyah and Beyonce had love for each other,yet sadly some of her older adult fans and millennials who weren’t even old enough to remember the era want to make it a versus thing. May she RIP so beautiful and humble.

    • Ilovemusic August 25, 2016

      This is the truest statement written. May Aaliyah RIP.

  30. Blue Ivy Rod August 25, 2016

    I would be here for a Beyonce and Aaliyah collab.

  31. LB August 25, 2016

    Hopefully now Beyonce stans can shut up, mature and stop attacking Aaliyah. They are a disgusting lot, all of them.

    • Yes August 25, 2016

      Shut your fake hypocritical Willy Lynch self hating ass up.

  32. Lewey August 25, 2016

    I wasn’t going to comment, but y’all haters are getting on my nerves. Destiny’s Child was already outselling Aaliyah at the time of this interview… So to say she wouldn’t be as successful is stupid because the writing on the wall already shifted 16 million world wide. Just stop. Aaliyah was my girl and she was super talented, but don’t forget when her last album debuted it didn’t even hit number 1 until after she died (R.I.P.) her album was falling down the billboard before then. I am not here to start a stab war, but I am just stating facts.

    • 310Brian August 25, 2016

      That was Destiny’s Child as a group not just Bey, so going by your logic Aaliyahs solo career would be lower than Kelly and Michelle since Destiny’s Child out sold her and to keep it 100 Beyonce as a solo artist hasn’t had a album sale as much as Writings on the Wall. BTW her last album was doing fine hence why it was her fastest album to hit gold and her highest 1st week sales of her career.

      R.I.P to Aaliyah and major props to bey for continously showing love

      • Lewey August 25, 2016

        um, who was singing all of the songs? Don’t act like Beyonce was not the face of Destiny’s Child at that time. Dangerously in Love outsold any of Aaliyah’s albums wold wide. You are right, Aaliyah’s album was successful, but it was after she passed. I loved Aaliyah and I was extremely hurt when she passed. However, Beyonce is also talented and can dance, so there is no way Beyonce would not have been successful.

      • 310Brian August 25, 2016

        I never said Bey wouldn’t be successful I am apart of the group that thinks she would still be where she is today but you are undermining Aaliyahs success and it isn’t necessary. Her last album sold 13 mill ww so I don’t think DIL outsold her entire discography. All of Destiny child members had equal parts on their records from survivor til they disbanded. Aaliyahs albums Aldo didn’t sale much after her passing because they were not available for purchase I mean check iTunes oto any store you will not find her albums you can’t even stream her music.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

        Australia: Gold 35,000
        Canada: Platinum 100,000
        France: Gold 100,000
        Germany: Gold 150,000
        Japan: Gold 100,000
        South Africa: 3x Platinum 150,000
        Switzerland: Gold 20,000
        United Kingdom: Platinum 300,000
        United States: 2x Platinum 2,000,000
        And the album literally charted in only 18 countries. So i find it extremely hard to believe her last album sold 13 million worldwide. There are no receipts or certifications to back that claim up. Her Worldwide albums sales are estimated to be between 16-18 million (this is with certifications). So if Brandys inflated sales can be debunked so can Aaliyah’s so called 36 million albums sold. The certifications just doesn’t add up.

  33. HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

    This is PATHETIC! How the fuxk can you use a post about Beyoncé paying homage to Aaliyah to try and drag? This is in regards to the woman’s death.
    .
    @TransDalmatian aka @VagisalCream aka @Irrelevant BITXH STOP DROPPING MY NAME IN YOUR FUXKING COMMENTS! I TOLD YOU MONTH’S AGO TO LEAVE ME ALONE! Let’s not act like Me Tyler, and Annalise don’t drag Aaliyah without cause. If her 2 stans would stfu! There wouldn’t be no need to drag!

    • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

      Girl you MAD? Y’all stay dragging Aaliyah and making fun of her death don’t be pressed because I called you out its all FACTS.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

        No bitxh you didn’t call anyone out! I never denied dragging Aaliyah. Your tired bipolar ass is always seeking attention! You CONSTANTLY drop Mine, Tyler and Annalise’s name.

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

        Shouldn’t you be doing homework sis?

      • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

        Shouldn’t you be giving Blumpkins at the truck stop on route 15? Seeing as that’s how you make a living.

    • Annalise August 25, 2016

      DRAG THAT UGLY CRACKER-B*TCH!!!! EYE AM CRINE!!!!!!

  34. Mark111 /.\ August 25, 2016

    That first comment is not me. But this was sweet. Beyonce always said nice things and respected Aaliyah, it’s her stans that are rude and bitter. But no fighting today, all love and playing those multi platinum albums today (as if I don’t already play them weekly.). R.I.P to the Princess Of R&B, Aaliyah, the power is in the name alone. 🙂

  35. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

    Hailbeysus you are a follower you drag Aaliyah to fit in with your masters Analplug and Tyrat you’re lowlife ass bìtch deal.

    • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

      Bitxh were you looking in the mirror as you typed this? This comment is an entire reflection of yourself!

      • Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 25, 2016

        Nothing but facts I see you can’t deal.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 25, 2016

        Okay Molly whatever helps you get through your prostitution.

  36. Sherrele August 25, 2016

    I admire Aaliyah and Beyonce! I am a huge fan of both! The other female stars don’t have anything on them.

  37. LB August 25, 2016

    So Chloe x Halle are expected to release their debut LP in September and the promo is literally non-existent.

    Those girls should sign with a serious label for their Sophomore, they are insanely talented to be hidden under the radar like this.

  38. Mark111 /.\ August 25, 2016

    Now that I’m older, 22 is SUCh a young age to go. Hats off for the career she had and where she was going by that age.

  39. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 25, 2016

    Yonce betta stan! Aaliyah is THE fvkin icon of a generation. Just as Bey and Aaliyah were so cordial at that moment, I would like to see Rihanna and Bey together in the same way. The world needs to see what #BlackExcellence looks like, because I think they’ve forgotten…

    • LB August 25, 2016

      I would lose my hair follicles if they did something similar, them being cordial, it needs to happen.

  40. Younggib August 25, 2016

    Mmm… Wasn’t Aaliyah and Beyonce dating Jay-Z “allegedly” around the same time. Then Aaliyah went on to Damen Dash cause they like to share women… Lol after she died Damen Dash married Rachael Roy and Jay-z been smashing her for years

    • Nahh August 25, 2016

      Uhm Beyoncé started dating JAYZ in 2001. Aaliyah dated JAYZ ONE TIME and Said she wasn’t feeling him and felt more like a brother!!!! She started dating dame in 2000. Her and JAYZ never DATED as in a relationship

  41. SippingmyTea ☕ August 25, 2016

    Yassss ! Rip Aaliyah you are truly missed. ! Your age aint nothing but a number album is my fave R and B album.

  42. LB August 25, 2016

    Literally this is what a real vocalist sounds like, haven’t heard an artist of this caliber since Whitney. Mariah fans take note. No vocal damage or pretentious runs, on point breathing technique, hitting all the notes, singing from the diaphragm, EVERYTHING ON POINT. Yonce if you f*ck this up……

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 25, 2016

      I know; I’m like Bey betta do those girls justice. They are beyond talented. Plus, Sophie Beem is crazy talented, but her branding is off. Yonce found some great talent, so it will be interesting to see how successful she can make them.

      • LB August 25, 2016

        She better make them successful, I am rooting for them BIG TIME

  43. ^^^**** August 25, 2016

    I like how some people in here are keeping it classy except for those two idiots and trolls above

    RIP baby girl . I was just starting my 2nd year in college when she died. I remember that day like it was yesterday.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 25, 2016

      Daaammmnnn… How old are you? Like 50?

      • RICHIE_RICH August 25, 2016

      • Yes August 25, 2016

        I would say he’s 33 or 34 not 50. You Rihanna fans are dumb as hell ?

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 25, 2016

        Hahaha. It was being sill. I’m 24 and feel old now, and I was 8 when Aaliyah died which seems so long ago now.

  45. Music August 25, 2016

    Aaliyah had a great relationship with destinys child so i never understood why people created an imaginary beef between the two rip queen /.\

    • Sexyforreal August 25, 2016

      Jay jealous arzz go after everything Dame wanted to do in the industry that created this dark cloud. Since Aaliyah, in which I wish people would let this poor soul rest in peace left him for Dame, jay z had prior business arrangements that was rushed for whatever to be heard. Since Aaliyah was distant in Jamaica with no water, the heat, and no neccesities she was anxious to get back to Dame whom she missed before he ventured off. This was created from evil intentions and lack of knowledge from the capacity that the flight held on Aaliyah’s part. So, this competition thing jay z has for whatever reasons created a domino effect. So, ya’ll dumb azzes is always falling for this k!ll’em with kindness fakeness. So now R.I.P Aaliyah, true angel.

    It’s disrespectful to make an Aaliyah post all about Beyonce! Why not make one big posts of all the celebs who paid tribute?

    Child not you bringing up brandys inflated ass album sales /over certfied albums
    Age Aint nothing but a number sold 3 million in the united states and 6 million worldwide
    Brandy’s self titled sold 2.1 million in the united states and 6 million worldwide and as you can see her label over certified her albums
    One in a million sold 3 million in the united states and 8 million worldwide.
    Never say never sold 4.6 million in the united states and with an inflated/ over certfified fake 16 million worldwide ( it sold 16 million yet it isnt certfified by the ifpi for selling a million or more in europe)
    And ps billboard confirmed that age And one in a million sold 3 million copies by july 20th 2001

    Please. Anybody who says that beyonce wouldn’t be successful if aaliyah was still around has got to be in denial or just a special kind of stupid. Vocally aaliyah was nothing. Beyonce can sing circles around aaliyah. Circles! I’m not just some crazy beytard, but it’s just the truth. If aaliyah was still alive, she’d be competition for someone like ciara. Now that’s someone aaliyah was better than, ciara! But not beyonce! Never! Beyonce has an amazing voice and lots of talent, if that all translated into great music I’d probably be a damn beytard myself!

    RIP Aaliyah though.

  49. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

    Everybody from Brandy to Destiny’s Child was outselling Aaliyah at this point in the game. Even Mya was more of a commercial success. So to say that Beyonce wouldn’t around if she were alive makes no f****** sense.

    • Music August 25, 2016

      Child please mya never outsold Aaliyah mya dont even havea multi-platinum album and brandy sales is inflated and her albums was overcertified DC outsold aaliyah because they was a group comparing dc sales to aaliyah is like comaparing brandy to tlc and monica to the spice girls

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        Aaliyah sold more albums after her death than before it #FACTS.COM
        Don’t try to come for Brandy because Never Say Never sold more units than any Aaliyah album ever released.

      • Music August 25, 2016

        Brandy sales is inflated how in the hell did it sell 16 million worldwide when it isnt even certified by ifpi for selling a million or more in europe the ifpi tracks worldwide sales you loose bûssy punk

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        NONE of Aaliyah’s albums went muliplatinum until AFTER she passed away. Brandy however , was always a good album seller. She was way more commercial than your fave. No shade, just the truth. Stay mad.

      • Music August 25, 2016

        Child how didnt she have multi-platinum albums when billboard confirmed her debut and sophmorw album sold 3 million copies and that article was written before she died you’re a slow ass punk

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        They may have been released before she died but they didn’t go multi platinum until AFTERWARDS.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        Never say never >>>> every aaliyah album to date, including self titled.

      • Music August 25, 2016

        Yawn you can continue to boast about an album that is inflated in sales/certifications lol the ifpi doesnt know “never say never” you know they track worldwide sales

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        You always got them f****** excuses. I pray to Lord you reveal what ya truth is

      • Music August 25, 2016

        Child talking to you is like talking to a brick wall you want to be right so bad go sûck ya uncles d***

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        Nobody asked your Mama Dee looking ass to jump into this conversation in the first place.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        Yawn yawn yawn
        Brandy’s sales > Aaliyah’s numbers don’t lie

    • 310Brian August 25, 2016

      You are being hit with receipts left and right about how she was selling before she passed but nobody cares what you say you lost credibility when you attempted to put Mya ahead of Aaliyah ???

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        They were on the same level tbh

  50. Sandra August 25, 2016

    R.I.P Aaliyah!!

  51. Yes August 25, 2016

    I love Aaliyah, R.I.P baby girl.

  52. Suicide Blonde August 25, 2016

    I had a huge crush on Aaliyah, meeting her on TRL was a dream come true. R.I.P. baby girl.

    • Fancy BISH August 25, 2016

      Now THAT is awesome…I would just lose it lol…thanks for sharing

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2016

        She also gave me a kiss on the cheek, she was so calm and sweet.

    • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? August 25, 2016

      I bet her sweet brown sugar had you running wild and questioning yourself. Am I correct?

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2016

        She was one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen, btw, people keep saying she was dark skinned but she was pretty light in person, I think she used to tan her skin, she glowed, she was just natural.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

        Aaliyah was not light skinned. She was brown skinned, medium toned, not high yellow

  53. eggplantinyomouth August 25, 2016

    Funny how everyone calling the b**** a angle and she was married at 15 and slept wit to bff #r . But lets keep it real

  54. eggplantinyomouth August 25, 2016

    ????????

  55. Laura August 25, 2016

    Sorry but I don’t get how Never say never sold 16 million when it’s not even listed under the best selling albums by a female or Rnb albums.
    Even the certifications added up don’t equate to 16 million.
    Australia: Platinum (70,000)
    Belgium: Platinum (20,000)
    Canada: 4x Platinum (320,000)
    Denmark: Gold (10,000)
    France: Gold (50,000)
    Germany: Gold (100,000)
    Indonesia: Gold (35,000)
    Ireland: Gold (7,500)
    Japan: 2x Platinum (500,000)
    Malaysia: Gold (7,500)
    Netherlands: Gold (25,000)
    New Zealand: Platinum (15,000)
    South Africa: Platinum (40,000)
    Sweden: Gold (20,000)
    United Kingdom: Gold (100,000)
    USA: 5x Platinum (5,000,000)

  56. Laura August 25, 2016

    And Mya’s first two albums didn’t even cross the two million mark so I fail to fathom how she was outselling Aaliyah

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~tyler August 25, 2016

      I fail to realize how beyonce’s career supposedly “wouldn’t exist” if Aaliyah was still alive….

  57. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 25, 2016

    Yikes! All this arguing over something as stupid as album sales just gave me cancer.

  58. Smoove Jones August 25, 2016

    R.I.P. Aaliyah Gone but never forgotten.

  59. Annalise August 25, 2016
