    Yes won’t God do it, now they need to put her One in a million album and self titled back on ITunes and idc but do a unreleased album with Noah 40 Shebib production without Drake (no hate to him, just unneeded). Can’t lie Enough Said was good

    But when she was alive they weren’t showing her or her “groundbreaking “ music. They had Lil Kim and Mary J Blige.. mm mm mm. We love you Baby Girl

    I have no intention of wearing the makeup, but I will buy it just because of the Aaliyah brand. I’ll get one set to keep for years and years even after it has dried up, and I’ll get another set to give as a gift. I can’t wait to see the packaging. I have to have the store displays and everything in my collection. Aaliyah is just that cool.
