An inspiration to almost every R&B artist out there these days (Drizzy for one), Aaliyah had her first record contract on lockdown at age twelve. From there, this Brooklyn-born and bred girl had five top ten hits, sold 32 million albums worldwide (real albums, not iTunes downloads), and starred in films Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned. To our Princess of R&B, age ain't nothing but a number and you'll forever be flawless in our eyes anyway. Happy birthday Aaliyah, we miss YOU.
AAliyah~ You are the bomb. You brighten up my whole day everytime I look at you. I respect you even though I don't consider myself a friend to the brothers in the crue anymore. But bless their heart for recognizing me all these years and keeping me safe and clean. With absolute love and gratitude your friend always
