Remembering Aaliyah Thanks to that Lifetime Movie


This past weekend Lifetime premiered their Aaliyah movie to the pleasure of almost no one. I tried to watch it twice but couldn’t make it through either time. Alot of articles have been written roasting the movie so I won’t go into that. (My favorite article was a Grantland blog post by Shea Serrano. Click here to check it out.)

My main issue with the movie was the lack of music. I was an Aaliyah fan from the moment I heard her debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number”. I was 10 years older than Aaliyah but I admired the woman’s style. She had an allure of confidence and mystery about her that drew you in. The talent was undeniable and she had unlimited potential. When she died, I cried like I had lost a sister.

Fortunately, the music lives on.  Here are my favorite Aaliyah’s songs.  Enjoy!

One in a Million
