20 years after the death of the R&B singer, a full studio catalog is ready
Aaliyah fans can listen to and record the latest R&B singer’s music on streaming services.
At midnight in the East, the star of “Try Again” released the album One in a Million in 1996, which reached Spotify and other major digital platforms. Aaliyah’s portfolio also includes her 2001 album, Rock the Boat, which will be released on September 10.
The soundtracks of Romeo Must Die, which Aaliyah contributed to the soundtrack, will be released on streaming platforms on September 3. Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, which debuted in 1994, is now available.
Aaliyah died in a landslide in August 2001 at the age of 22. His legacy has been debated for years over the distribution of music with Blackground Records 2.0. The company is re-launching a label founded by Aaliyah’s uncle, former manager and head of label Barry Hankerson. Hankerson owns Aaliyah’s masters, and manages the province’s catalog.
“This unscrupulous effort to present Aaliyah’s music to the property without any transparency and complete accounting forces us to express our hearts in one word – forgiveness,” Aaliyah Haughton said in August.
“As a result, we wish the Aaliyah Memorial Foundation and other creative projects that embody the true essence of Aaliyah to facilitate the growth of closure and a little peace. The cultures of the world. The world.”
The release of Aaliyah’s music coincides with a new biography of Baby Girl: better known as Aaliyah. The book, written by author and journalist Kathy Iandoli, contains new details about the life and moments before the superstar’s death.
