Today marks what would have been one of R&B’s most talented female artists 35th birthday. Aaliyah, who made headlines back in the ’90s with her debut album, Age Ain’t Nothin But A Number, had one of the most unexpected and tragic deaths of our time.
Known for her angelic voice, over the eye bang and pure beauty, “Baby Girl” also starred in many box office hits including Romeo Must Die. Responsible for aiding in the progression of the sexy tomboy look, she created and supplied us with some of the best music to hit the scene in the ’90s and early 2000s.
In true respected form, Hot 97’s Mister Cee took over the airwaves and gave listeners a full playlist of Aaliyah tunes on Thursday. Mixing classic tracks such as “4 Page Letter” and “Hot Like Fire,” it was a great time to reminisce on some of the most inspirational music of our time.
Take a listen to Mister Cee’s “Baby Girl BDay Mix” below.
