Aaliyah, In 2001, a month before his untimely and tragic death, “Aaliyah”nous blessed with his self-titled third studio album. Without doubt his best album,” Aaliyah”était a perfect marriage of Princess R & B ‘more votes more sober and his musical relationship with Timbaland and Missy Elliott, producing classic songs with great crossover appeal.
Timbaland particularly directed to produce a more accessible pop version of his earlier work on the One In A Million LP. Static Major picked up some of the other album tracks and perfectly complimented his production work from Timbaland on the record.
But what makes this album so good is the fact that it is “Aaliyah”partout. She brought her A-game to an absolute one. The thing about “Aaliyah”est it so expensive to most of us, because we think we grew up with her and saw her develop from a young girl of 14 who hit the scene all the way back when. His music provided a soundtrack to our youth. [... Am I showing my age here!]?
Some people I know even the beginning of music, singing or dancing because of her. She affected a lot, but because it was far from average, “average girl”. It could easily be your be your friend (or girlfriend, you feel me guys!), But she was also a star. It was this crossover appeal that made her so admired and adored in the world.
What we saw with the release of this album was UN”’Aaliyah that was more mature in his voice and more experimental in its style, lyrical content and writing. Add to that his film appearances, and you have a public icon and a model perfectly suited to your daughter or your sister. Never to resort to wearing skimpiest outfits or falling out of clubs drunk for advertising, “Aaliyah”était certainly at the top of her game And this album was tangible proof of it, who captured the moment in his career forever for our pleasure, to replay at any time.
Opening with the monster “We Need A Resolution” Aaliyah”’définit the standard right from the start with a song that has influences from the Middle East backed by pounding drums and vocal percussion and Timbo is worded in such a fantastic way to relate-able with his vocal improvisations asking: “Who should be hurt, who should be blamed?” Although the song has not surprisingly made the charts, it remains a classic R & B.
