After ample teasing and controversy, Aaliyah‘s music is finally heading to streaming services.
Full story below…
Moments ago, it was announced that the star’s music will at long last take residence on various platforms after a two-decade absence from the digital sphere.
The news was first trumpeted by the relaunch of the Blackground Records – which is helmed by the late singer’s uncle Barry Henkerson.
Aaliyah’s ‘One In A Million’ album will be up first and will be joined by other long-unavailable projects from the likes of Toni Braxton (‘Libra’) and JoJo (‘The High Road’).

The news arrives ahead of the 20th anniversary of Aaliyah’s tragic death in a plane crash.
And it only took 20 years! Barry should be ashamed!
can’t believe it took this long to do, but i’m glad it’s happening
I still don’t believe this lol..I’m sorry I got to actually SEE IT WITH MY OWN TWO EYEBALLS..they say this EVERY YEAR and every August until August 25th everyone talks about her then come August 26th she isn’t mentioned anymore unless it’s some bs…so no I don’t believe this but if this is true I will be ready for this. All her stuff is about to resell and honestly it should. After this though they need to go ahead and leave her alone so she can get some true rest bc right now I don’t believe she has gotten any at all…
I believe it this time only because Barry is relaunching Blackground Records with a new artist named Autumn. That’s the ONLY way he’ll get people to pay attention to her.
Wow 🤩 Aaliyah is that FLAAAAAAVORRRR lol ❤️🤳🏽🎶🔥 But yeah, took them long enough….I know what song I’m playing first! Loose Rap 🥰
You know about SOME flavor then… LAWD!
I know you can come better than THAT lol 😉🎶💋
Her vinyl collection is hard to get 💅🏿
Yaaas, I NEED that third album vinyl chile 🔥❤️
If I’m a drink
You’re my lemon squeeze
Oh, you got flavor boy
You go good with me -Aaliyah, It’s Whatever 🤳🏽
I’m here for ALL of this!
Such great albums that were held hostage in the vault for so damn long.
Finally Aaliyahs full catalog for streaming…jojo’s first 2 gems that catapulted her career AND Toni braxtons libra?!! Chile I’m here for this..this and THAT! We love to see it.
Blackground can still suck a bowl of mixed d*cks for how they mishandled these amazing artist and these amazing pieces of work but better late than never for this matter I suppose and I’ll still be streaming.
It would probably be more tasteful if they did her birthday instead of celebrating 20 years since she burned to death
But if y’all happy I guess that’s good?
How does her brother feel about this? I just don’t understand why it has taken so long.
F******* thinks she can get away for not paying the copyright. Timbo is gonna sue her label 💅🏿
The money is all going into the pockets of someone who continues to create a lot of pain and misery for JoJo and Aaliyah’s estate especially. I wish I could be excited, but I’m not.
It’s understandable but it’s selfish like for God sake Aaliyah been gone for years along with her music it’s a blessing she still mentioned highly these days despite that fact. She always wanted her music to be remembered and quite frankly her Estate has done nothing in tributing her at all. Like i get it too that Barry seems like a snake and s*** but damn we the fans deserve better we been carrying her legacy more than the two have ever since her passing.
I’m happy to hear this but didn’t her estate allegedly just say they didn’t want it released yesterday? 😒 I want her music, but also want her estate to get their wishes

What about her first album? Or is it not getting this because of R kelly?
It’s already been available.
Well damn I had no idea lol
I can’t wait to stream music by R. Kelly’s lil’ w h o r e. Maybe I’ll stream One in a million, but I do prefer the Beyoncé version.
You’re irrelevant when I’m actually here *SMACKS* lmaooooooooo 👀 Next time, check and see if I’ve arrived before you OR ya mama decide to troll using my screen name lol 🤳🏽💋
