Listen: Aaliyah’s ‘One In a Million’ Album Officially Released to Streaming Outlets

Published: Thursday 19th Aug 2021 by Rashad

While Aaliyah’s debut album, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number,’ has always been available via streaming, its critically acclaimed follow-ups – ‘One in a Million’ and ‘Aaliyah: The Album’ – have been locked in a vault courtesy of the record label on which they were released, the Barry Hankerson-helmed Blackground Records.

Years of calls to add the LPs to digital streaming services was finally answered earlier this month, with the official report indicating a piecemealed rollout that would see ‘Million’ unveiled Friday (August 20), Aaliyah-led soundtracks on September 3, ‘Aaliyah: the Album’ on September 10, her compilation albums on October 8, and her first posthumous album on an undisclosed date.

And while the singer’s estate has made clear they are not in favor of the revamped label’s decision to move forward with putting her music on streaming outlets, Blackground 2.0 is moving forward with ‘Million’ first – just three months ahead of its 25th anniversary.

Stream it inside courtesy of Apple Music and Spotify.

    Classic album. I know a lot of people prefer her self-titled, but this will always be my favourite.

      The funn thing about her Albums is all 3 Albums sound diffrent from each other but each and every album sounds classical

    Self titled >>>>>

      Wrong. They both stand alone, one is not better than the other.

    Y’all better stop bringing up self titled. OIAM gave us never giving up A TRUE r&b CLASSIC.

    Both albums were spectacular.

    • Gworl Bye August 20, 2021

      And self titled gave us I Care For You, A TRUE R&B CLASSIC. So why shouldn’t we bring it up?🙄

      • Le le August 20, 2021

        Because it’s tiered and unnecessary. I’m addressing those saying self titled is the better album of the two.

        This post is focused on OIAM & my point was both albums being as great as they are deserve equal praise.

        But I’f you were to compare “I Care 4 U” to “One In A Million”, the later is more widely known without having to search, is still played and added to streaming Playlist and is still a go-to when you bring up her name.

    August 27 (next Friday) is the 25th anniversary of the One In A Million album, not 3 months from now. Google takes 2 seconds. 🙄

    I didn’t love this album but we can’t deny the impact her singles made. It’s the orange album for me >>>

    • Farrah’s Luggage August 20, 2021

      Orange??? Self-titled was RED and the coverart was inspired by Janet Jackson’s Control coverart.

      • Your Name August 20, 2021

        You still know what I was talking about though. Orange, red, self titled, whatever you wanna call it >>>

      • Farrahs Luggage August 20, 2021

        True ❤️
