Hard really.

"Aaliyah" is her artistic crowning achievement, the greatest thing Timbaland ever produced, a watershed album for its genre, but she died less than two months after its release so the era never reached its max potential for obvious reasons.

So for that, I'd give it to One In A Million simply because the era wasn't beset by tragedy.

The Romeo Must Die era to be honest. It's what made her a global star but technically, it's Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, she had more hits. Sadly, it was slept on and Aaliyah, her family and team pretty much wanted to era her affiliation with R. Kelly that's why it's slept on and not celebrated.

One in a Million wasn't exactly a big era for her, it's what prompted her to crossover to film and sing soundtrack songs to breakthrough into the mainstream even more. Sadly, despite being her magnum opus, her Aaliyah album was actually close to flopping before she passed.

But that album was only a month and a half old when she died and the album only seemed to be flopping because the lead single flopped. They wanted to release More Than a Woman first but Rock the Boat was already gaining radio support which prompted the label to send Aaliyah to Bahamas to shoot the video. If only the tragedy didn't happen, I am certain that this would be still her most successful album.

I am not sure if she actually had a huge era. I would probably say "One In A Million" just because of the number of singles.

tricky because both groups had multiple very successful eras. I'll go with Sound of the Underground for Girls Aloud and Taller In More Ways for the Sugababes
