Today Wednesday, August 25th marks 9 years that Aaliyah tragically died in a plane crash. The plane crash happened in the Bahamas after filming the music video for “Rock The Boat”. Since the tragic accident and 9 years later, Aaliyah’s music and movie career has achieved commercial success with several continued releases. And now her album sales are estimated to be between 24 to 32 million copies worldwide. The beautiful Singer, Model, Actress was only 22 years old in 2001, Aaliyah would have been 31 years old. That was a very sad sad Sunday Morning as most everyone probably remembers what they were doing or where they were when they got the news. So may she forever Rest In Peace as we can celebrate all that she left behind for the world.
Aaliyah brought a different style that changed the game… her style was sexy but it was something that was totally different. The sweatsuits, hats, and sneakers was a look that dudes loved and the girls copied.
Your spirit and touch lives on, Rest in Peace Babygirl!
(January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001)
