After much ado, it appears Aaliyah‘s music will finally be heading to streaming services.
Full story below…
Today serves as the 19th anniversary of the R&B superstar’s death following a plane crash. She was just 22.
In the near two decades since that tragic day in 2001, Aaliyah’s legend has been kept alive by way of her iconic music videos and the physical albums purchased by her legions of loyal fans.
However, with the music industry having shape-shifted in earnest, the absence of her releases on streaming services has been impossible to ignore.
Even more perplexing was the lack of definitive reasoning.
Now, her Estate have announced that they have heeded the long-demanded request for the digital availability of her music.
A statement released moments ago read:
“To our loyal fans: We are excited to announce that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s music catalogue, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future. Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates to come!”
