Remembering Aaliyah: Our Top 5 Favorites From The Star That Left Us Too Soon

We lost a special one on August 25, 2001. Aaliyah, at only 22 years old and at the top pf her game, was tragically killed in a plane crash after shooting a music video. With hit after hit under her belt, along with a budding movie career, Aaliyah was the epitome of true talent, grace and integrity. It’s hard not to wonder about all of the things she would have gone on to do had she not been taken from us so soon, but the music she left us with is enough to remind us of all she stood for and all she was willing to share with us. If you’re like us, you probably grew up watching Aaliyah on MTV. It was such a pleasure getting to watch her evolve as an artist – her poise and elegance a treasure; her wit and humor so refreshing. There really wasn’t a thing she couldn’t do. As we remember the legacy that is Aaliyah 14 years later, we put together a list of our top five favorite videos from the star. We hope it brings you right back to where you were the first time your heard these songs. ♥

  1. “We Need A Resolution”

2. “Try Again”

3. “One In A Million”

4. “Are You That Somebody?”

5. “Rock The Boat”
