My focus for the rest of November and December is to finish my shit! Chuck says it the best.
This past weekend Lifetime premiered their Aaliyah movie to the pleasure of almost no one. I tried to watch it twice but couldn’t make it through either time. Alot of articles have been written roasting the movie so I won’t go into that. (My favorite article was a Grantland blog post by Shea Serrano. Click here to check it out.)
My main issue with the movie was the lack of music. I was an Aaliyah fan from the moment I heard her debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number”. I was 10 years older than Aaliyah but I admired the woman’s style. She had an allure of confidence and mystery about her that drew you in. The talent was undeniable and she had unlimited potential. When she died, I cried like I had lost a sister.
Fortunately, the music lives on. Here are my favorite Aaliyah’s songs. Enjoy!
One in a Million
Are You That Somebody
More Than a Woman
