Top 10 Aaliyah Songs

Singer, songwriter, model and actress Aaliyah Dana Haughton aka Aaliyah was an angel on earth and she continues to be an angel in heaven. She was born in Brooklyn and raised in Detroit, Michigan. At the tender age of ten, she appeared on Star Search and things went uphill from there. Aaliyah signed to Jive Records and her uncle Barry Hankerson’s Blackground Records at twelve years old. Hankerson introduced her to R. Kelly, who became her mentor as well as lead songwriter and producer of “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number,” which sold three million copies in the United States. She would move on to work with Timbaland and Missy Elliot on her ‘One In A Million’ album.

Today, she has left with us a legacy of a beautiful and talented young woman. Even new artist like Drake pay her homage. It wasn’t hard to see the light that shined bright threw her smile from her spirit. Her music is a testament to who she was as a person as well as an artist. Here are ten songs we knew and loved from Aaliyah. (Not in a specific order.)

So I Decided To Write I’m Sending Him A 4 Page Letter,
And I Enclosed It With A Kiss.
And When I Write Him He Better, Get It On Time.

Are You That Somebody

I’ve been watching you Like a hawk in a sky That flies,
and You were my prey (my prey) Boy,

One In A Million

Baby you don’t know,what you do to me.
Between me and you, I feel a chemistry.
Won’t let no one come and take your place.
Cause the love you give can’t be replaced.
See no one else love me like you do.
That’s why I don’t mind to spend my life with you.
Wanna please you in anyway I can.
Wanna share my world don’t you understand.
Your love is a one in a million

We Need A Resolution

If you had let me know,

Miss You

It’s been too long and I’m lost without you

Is your heart still mine?
I wanna cry sometimes

At Your Best You Are Love

When you feel what you feel
Oh, how hard for me to understand
So many things have taken place
before this love affair began
But if you feel, oh, like I feel
Confusion can give way to doubt
For there are times
when I fall short of what I say
What I say I’m all about,
all about

Try Again

If at first you don’t succeed
Dust yourself off and try again

If at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again
