        R.I.P. Aaliyah


        I hate it when people say she had just gotten started/ It's innacurate. She had 3 albums out. Her last album was the one that positioned her at pretty much the top of commercial R n B. She had movies coming out/ working.

        It was the cookie cutter trajectory to stardom cut short.

        The comparisons to other artists bit is hard to question. Beyonce and Aaliyah were worlds apart in terms of style and musical output so to say they both wouldn't exist is ridiculous.

        Ciara on the other hand I see a lot of similarities with. I love Cici and own all her albums but I would be lying if I didn't start getting interested in her as a replacement for Aaliyah. I still think Aaliyah's last album is more current and fresh sounding than anything Ciara has released as I think although Aaliyah didn't have the strongest voice, she utilises it as an asset on songs where as Ciara's voice is usually an addition to the production.

        It would have been interesting to see the musical landscape if Aaliyah was still alive because undoubtedly it would be different.

        :(

            I think Aaliyah's voice is often unappreciated, she had amazing control and depth to her vocals. Yes she had a an amazing head light head voice but she could belt also and live performances showed how rich her voice was. I wish there was more unreleased material from her that was good enough for another album.

              I agree! People say she couldnt sing but she actually could, just because she isnt a high belter doesnt mean she couldnt sing.

                      I posted this in the "R.I.P. Aaliyah" thread and bumped it in the Urban section, but I'll post it in here since the conversation is more active:

                      10 years today. It really is proof that time flies. I still remember the moment I find out about her death, back in the day when I didn't have the internet and found out over teletext. Needless to say, despite not being a huge fan like others would be, I was gutted and devastated that the worst lost such a special talent and at such a young age. She really did have it all going from her, and it just ended so tragically.

                      R.I.P. Aaliyah. Not a year has gone by that you weren't thought about. Hopefully you're in a better place for leaving the world so prematurely.
                      I can't believe that it's 10 years already. It's unbelievable, really.

                      'Try Again' still sounds as fresh as ever.

                              Can't believe it's been 10 years! I remember hearing the news like it was yesterday. It makes me sad when I think of that very moment.

                              RIP Babygirl, you're truly missed but your music still lives on.

                                  I know right? Time goes by so fast. I too can remember hearing the news like it was yesterday. I even know where I was at that moment.

                                    She was pretty much my idol when I was growing up and when I learned of her death I was devastated. R.I.P Babygirl <3

                                    Oh, and I hate when people say she had a weak voice. She didn't show it off much but this girl could really SING. "The One I Gave My Heart To" shows what skills she had.

                                          Cannot believe its been a decade. I remember when someone IM'd me asking if I'd heard about it... I honestly thought she was full of BS because it couldn't have been more than a week or two after this internet rumor that Britney and Justin had been killed in a car accident was all over the internet, so I figured that someone made up something like that about Aaliyah as another attention-hogging rumor. Then the news reports began rolling in one after another... very sad times. I remember going to work the next morning (I worked retail at the time) and we'd sold out of her cd by the time I'd left work for the day. I do remember that was a stormy day and the Madonna Drowned World Tour concert was on HBO that night and some people were mad she didn't pay tribute to her on the special.

                                            I didn't get to say it yesterday cause posting quota but I spent all yesterday listening to her music. It's still so fresh even though it's quite old Sounds fresher than most R&B nowadays. It makes me think how much of an amazing artist she would of been today.

                                                      I also love the fact that she came on with a natural elegance, she's so beautiful and classy without even trying...just look at her, always stunning and style is on point.
