Aaliyah's death really reduced the impact of her music. In the 90s, Brandy and Monica stood no chance against Aaliyah. So many people loved her music and respected her craft.
Well that was rude...Excuse me?! The audacity! You clearly didn't experience the 90s bc aaliyah ain't have shit on monica & damn sure not on brandy. Brandy was the fucking shit in the 90s. She was the top teen r&b artist. Brandy had her own doll, multi platinum albums & her own tv show when was 15. Aaliyah wasn't selling records like brandy. Aaliyah did not have that & she doesn't sing better than brandy & monica. Y'all stay trying to canonize aaliyah. Everybody else act like they're scared to say it but imma say it. Aaliyah was not popping like that in the 90s. Period
Well that was rude...
I can admit I got my words wrong. I was trying to say that Aaliyah was in her own lane and never got coined a "teen star". She was respected among her peers and in a league of her own. Obviously Brandy had the most success but Aaliyah was a big deal too!
Definitely why I love you so much. Monica sung tf outta that song
Lol it's not rude, it's just the truth. You didn't get your words wrong. You just said how you feel, which nothing is wrong w/that but the thing is, so many people make aaliyah out to be this mega, international superstar, even comparing her to beyonce like...please say psych when her last album dropped, it flopped like...bad! People try to act like aaliyah was hot shit when she was alive, which is furthest from the truth. Aaliyah is more known for her industry connections & relationships than her music. Even the movies she was in was trash. She wasn't a big deal back in the 90s. Her albums didn't do that good. Check the soundscan from when her albums dropped. One in a million did the best. It did better than her other 2 albums but it was bc of the production, not her
her last album had her biggest 1st week sales with a weak lead single and still went gold before she died despite her label doing her and their other artists dirty she 2 multi platinum albums multiple hits based on airplay while competing with brandy and Monica performed at the Oscars, had a hit movie and platinum sound track was going to perform at the mtv awards the same year she was on way up!
