For years now, Aaliyah fans have wondered why her catalog, particularly the songs and albums she recorded after her 1994 debut album. In reality, that decision was left up to Aaliyah’s uncle, Barry Hankerson who held control of her discography as it was recorded for now-defunct Blackground Records. Now according to Hankerson, the singer’s full […]

Today marks Aaliyah‘s 39th birthday and if she were still alive, we can only imagine how she would’ve looked at today’s current artists. Would she see her influence? Would she be hopping on other people’s tracks? Surely the smooth vocalist would have been pushing music forward herself. Aaliyah was more than sunshades and crop tops. […]
