Remember The Time: Always 'One In A Million'

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Eight years ago, today, the music world lost a shining star, and her name was Aaliyah. Somehow it just seems that yesterday Aaliyah donned baggy pants, had sunglasses atop her head and was wondering if some boy was her somebody. Now that image is a distant memory, but a sweet memory nonetheless, as Aaliyah's tunes and persona was apart of the 90's R&B elite. From time to time, I often wonder what Aaliyah's musical career would have morphed into as her final record, the self-titled release from 2001, proved to be some of Timbaland's best production work, and some of Aaliyah's slickest material. For this edition of Remember The Time, I decided to dedicate it to Baby Girl and showcase her best video...but alas my indecisive self couldn't pick just one Aaliyah video to satisfy this post, so I manged to whittle it down to two of my personal favorite cuts, 1996's "One In A Million" and 2001's "Rock The Boat".

  1. I cannot believe that it's been eight years, when it still only feels like yesterday.

    Aaliyah will always be missed within music, she was taken far too soon. Aaliyah and Michael Jackson are no doubt singing together in heaven.

    R.I.P. Aaliyah, gone but never forgotten.
