It’s like she hasn’t left us. Not only are models copying her style, musicians are featuring her on their tracks and her unreleased songs — like “Quit Hatin” and “Time” – are popping up almost every year. Aaliyah’s legacy lives on.
On the anniversary (August 25, 2001) of Aaliyah’s untimely death due to a plane crash in the Bahamas, we pay tribute to the late singer and one of the most sampled posthumous artists of all time.
But we’re still waiting for Timbaland to top this list with the best Aaliyah tribute and production. He’s clearly not satisfy with some of the artists on this list and is sensitive about many of Aaliyah’s tributes still occurring to this day. Let’s see if this pushes him to release new Aaliyah material since 2005’s Ultimate Aaliyah album.
