“Rock The Boat” by Aaliyah

Written by Static Major with the help of Eric Seats and Rapture Stewart, the song was reportedly written for Aaliyah years before she actually recorded it. Her label allegedly wasn’t too sure if she was ready to put out music of such a sexual nature. The song stayed on the charts for 25 weeks and peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #2 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
