From The Vault: Aaliyah & DMX – ‘Come Back in One Piece’

Published: Sunday 11th Apr 2021 by Joe

As the world collectively mourns the loss of a Hip-Hop titan DMX, From The Vault is back this week with his beloved collaboration with R&B princess Aaliyah.

Today’s pick is ‘Come Back in One Piece.’

Produced by Irv Gotti and based on a Parliament sample of ‘Sir Nose D’Voidoffunk,’ the song sees the singer urging her boyfriend to be careful while he’s running the streets —  though he does little to reassure her.

The track was released as the third single from the soundtrack to the movie ‘Romeo Must Die’ – which both artists starred in.

The song charted at #36 of the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B charts and has been praised for being a successful common ground for two artists with seemingly opposite styles.

Its video was directed by Little X and was shot in DMX’s hometown of Yonkers and Mount Vernon in New York.

The duo served “hood love” and played up the track’s lyrics hanging out in gloomy hallways, walking big dogs, and engaging in street antics.

For many, this is a timeless audio-visual piece that captures the otherworldly energy and aura of two of the most inspiring artists of modern times.

This week, we lost a tremendous talent, one whose legendary status is unquestionable. Indeed, DMX has been a pillar of the culture for decades and will most definitely continue to be.

We find solace in knowing his passing will encourage the younger generation – who might not be familiar with his back catalog – to dig in the vault and let X give it to ‘em.

Legends never die, they continue to live on and inspire.

DMX, we salute you and we thank you.

    Missing you both in heaven 💅🏿💅🏿 If Aaliyah is still alive todays, there will no Beyoncé or Rihanna 🤳🏿🤳🏿

      That’s like saying if Elvis was alive there would be no 80s/90s MJ . Bad example tho cuz Elvis actually sold records. Beys DIL outsold all Aliyah albums combined. Aliyah was a weak performer and vocalist compared to bey. Bey can sing any Aliyag song, same not true in reverse, Alitah couldve never gotten away with Sweet Dreams Halo Love on Top Single Ladies Drunkin love or Deja vu and Forget about Crazy in Love

      Aliyah would be watching Bey from the Nose Bleed seats just like the rest of us lol 😂

        Everything u named happened after Aaliyah passed. Beyonce wasn’t that great of a singer or dancer however she improved with time. If Aaliyah continued to improve i believe she would have been as big Beyonce. I’m not going to say anyone would not have had a career but Aaliyah would have excelled it was in the cards for her. She was on the incline when she passed.
