Aaliyah – If Your Girl Only Knew (Atlantic)

Aaliyah Dana Daughton‘s tragically shortened life had all of a fairy tale though. Performing at the age of 10 on TV show Star Search alongside Gladys Knight would been her uncle’s wife for some time, the singer, actress, model and dancer would get a record deal 2 years after with Jive Records, with thanks to the latter (Barry Hankerson) who introduced her to R. Kelly who would produce her debut-album – ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number’ as led by the single of the likes – back in 1993.
Released as the lead single of ‘One In A Million’,  her second album 3 years later, the mellow swingin’ ‘If Your Girl Only Knew’, penned by Missy Elliott and Timbaland, heavily contributed putting the latter on the map as an in-demand producer.

    RIP Aaliyah! Throw your hands up if you’re down with the Jeep . The controversial project ‘Age ain’t nothing but a number ‘ has undeniable in your face head bopping grooves. The movie co-starring Jet Li ‘Romeo must die’ granted a hint of cinematic star quality . Gone so soon . Happy Birthday Aaliyah.??????
