12 years without Aaliyah

One can't help but wonder how would the R&B music industry be today if Aaliyah was still around. A fatal plane crash ended her life on August 25, 2001, when she was flying home from the Bahamas after filming her music video 'Rock the Boat' on location when she was just 22 years old and already a R&B queen.

Just like Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes from TLC, who died the following year – both deaths a shock to my teenage self – she will be forever missed, and her top chart songs, now classics, serve as inspiration for today's sort of decaying music industry.

So, in honor of her shining career i'm doing a list with my 10 fave Aaliyah songs in no specific order, because she proved from an early age that she was a star in the rising, with her sweet voice and smooth vocals, catchy tunes and always a classy and humble attitude, the original baby girl, her star will never fade. We miss you:

 Back and Forth

If Your Girl Only Knew

Are You That Somebody

Try Again

We Need a Resolution

More Than A Woman

Don't Know What To Tell Ya

I Care 4 U

Miss You

Rock the Boat
