Interestingly, all three songs peaked at #9 on Billboard Hot 100.
Broken-hearted reminds me of my sophomore year of high school. Right around the age I had my lil feelings hurt by a guy for the 1st time LOL.
I used to be in my room with that song in repeat !!

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
I'll probably get scalped for this but when it comes to Aaliyah the historical revisionism is real.

Brandy RULED the 90's and Monica was always second. Though Aaliyah did have a following and great music she wasn't a huge star. Her death made her a legend.

I can't pick one as the best. They all hit deep at different points, in the same relationship, with the same dude, thankfully back then and nevermore! ( sorry, my nerd channeled poetic prose and a Raven reference).

And it's ridiculous bc you shouldn't have to feel that way. People just can't handle the truth. I keep trying to tell mfs she wasn't that popular but they always wanna throw tantrums & shit :rolleyes: it's ridiculous how she keeps getting compared to or put above artists like beyonce, brandy etc when she wasn't as popular, talented nor did numbers like them. All they gotta do is check the soundscan from the 90s but they don't wanna do that bc the truth hurts. One time somebody got mad bc I compared aaliyah to jhene aiko :laughing:

Looking back, these three were light years ahead of their time. Especially compared to these artists of today. Looking back you can really appreciate the artistry, talent, and the music they all brought to the table. And they all were out simultaneously and all successful.

I'm convinced that a lot of those people who dispute these facts weren't born yet.

I think Aaliyah's career was comparable to Monica's. When she released the OIAM album Brandy and Monica weren't promoting their first album anymore so Aaliyah had the lane to herself. She made a huge impact with that album.

Aaliyah didn't do as well stat wise but she had a really good run and I don't think its fair to discredit her. At the time of her death her last big hit (Try Again) was way bigger than Brandy and Monica's last hit.

It' not even fair to compare them. They all excelled in different areas.

Any thread with aaliyahs name in it is bound to bring haters like clockwork. Anyways I’m going to go with Monica on this one, then brandy, then Aaliyah. WILYSM is one of my favorite love songs of all time.

I wasn't comparing them tho. Someone else was. I was just responding to it. That's why I told sis that you clearly didn't experience the 90s bc everyone from that time, knows that aaliyah wasn't popping like that. You can go back & look up everything I'm saying. Aaliyah wasn't topping charts like brandy & monica did. Y'all have to understand that just bc someone says something you don't agree w/doesn't, mean they're discrediting someone. It's just the truth. Some people can't accept that but that's just what it is

Aaliyah never had a huge impact on anything. Idk what your definition of huge is but nothing aaliyah has ever done, was huge. She was just a mediocre artist. You're talking about "it's not fair" no. It is fair bc the numbers & the receptions don't lie but don't say it's not fair to compare them then say that aaliyah's last hit was bigger than brandy & monica's last hit bc that's where your contradiction & bias comes in. For one, if try again was the best she could do & the best you can come up with, that, by itself, solidifies my point :laughing: anything aaliyah has ever made, did not do better than anything brandy & monica has ever made. You don't have to take my word for it. You can look it up

Being honest is not discrediting her. A font in here lied and said that Brandy and Monica didn’t stand a chance against Aaliyah. These people will tell the boldest lies, then call people haters or act like victims when others bring them back to reality.

Aaliyah has a great run, lots of bops, great style, pretty, iconic, all of that, and she was still the number three girl.

Considering that numbers one and two were Brandy and Monica, that is still damn good.
