It’s been 13 years since Aaliyah passed away in a tragic plane crash after shooting “Rock The Boat” in the Bahamas.
NYCROPHONE wants to honor Aaliyah Dana Haughton with a 13 track playlist, a compilation of some of our favorites. Not easy since she had a vast amount of beautiful songs. Actually, I can’t recall any Aaliyah song I didn’t like – ever. I can still listen to all of her stuff again and again.
Watching the video and hearing”Miss You” still makes me sad. I realize I’ve listened to her music a lot back then. I believe “One in a Million” was the first Aaliyah CD I owned. It had 4 different versions of the song on it.
We hope our playlist reflects her legacy. It’s a mix of her earlier works, more recent hits, some lesser known tracks and a couple of post death releases. Additionally we added OhSoKOOL’s 21 Love Salute, another tribute to her.
Aaliyah will always be missed and never replaced. She will always be a big part of that dope 90s R&B era and will not be forgotten.
