Aaliyah‘s official YouTube account is coming soon.

A post on the late singer’s Instagram account revealed that her official YouTube account will be coming in 2021 after her estate recently gained control of it.

More details below…

The announcement was shared alongside a picture of the ‘Try Again’ singer and a caption that reads:

“Thank you for all of your love and support. We are proud to announce that the Estate is now in control of the “Aaliyah” YouTube account. 2021 will the year of Aaliyah! See you all in the new year!”

The news comes months after her estate announced that her music would be finally coming to streaming services (as we reported here).

Previously, the legal battles around Aaliyah’s music has been well documented. Blackground Records – the label that was founded by her uncle Barry Hankerson – released all three of her studio albums. However, it is no longer operational and Hankerson is believed to be the primary figure that blocked the release of her music.

For now, there is no telling what will be featured on her official YouTube account.

We cannot wait to see what’s in store. But what are…

Your thoughts?

    They said last year that they would release her music on streaming platforms. Nothing.
    Then in the beginnings of 2020 they said again that they would release the music soon. Again, nothing so far.
    Now this.
    Go to hell!

      The first announcement was from an unofficial instagram account claiming to be Barry Hankerson. This year’s official announcement did not promise anything; they just said they are in talks and hopeful about the outcome.

    They have done Babygirl wrong in death smh, Her music should’ve been streamed and available like her peers and the legends we’ve lost. I don’t care what anyone says too, I’d still like for Noah 40 to produce her unreleased music. “Enough Said” was dope and only got hate because Drake obsession was involved had he not been included we probably would’ve gotten that album. Aaliyah was bound to work with other producers anyway just like Bey, Brandy, Rihanna, MJ, Mariah, etc her self-titled is evidence of it. Timberland a legend but nobody other than JT looking for his production.

      I totally agree with you!! I don’t think her real fans were mad about that 2012 album, but the people that only know her singles were the ones complaining about it acting like they were her fans. Us real fans know that Aaliyah worked with loads of other producers, especially on her self titled album. The red album made her the legend she is, that album was a masterpiece. I miss her so damn much.

    She deserved better. Shame on everyone involved.

    I was listening to the Aaliyah album in the car, besides 3 tracks, I think it still knocks hard 🔥

    They waited on purpose for the 20th year

    Such a mess. Way to tarnish Aaliyah’s legacy by keeping her best albums hidden from the public.

    I always had a feeling something big was coming for the 20 year anniversary of her death. Maybe some unreleased music, hence the new official YouTube channel coming and the halting of production on the album by Drake? Who knows. I said this back when the I Care 4 U album dropped, I knew they must have been saving most of the unreleased music until 2021.
