It has been a long time since fans of the late R&B/pop superstar Aaliyah have pleaded for all her music to be added to the largest streaming services, but their requests have gone unfulfilled. As of now, we know the paperwork has been settled, so everyone who loves and misses Aaliyah can scratch a task off of their checklists: Be available for the return of her music. Due to the fact that her entire discography has been virtually nonexistent digitally, it is very exciting to discover that it is finally available. One In A Million, Aaliyah’s second studio album sets up camp in all streaming platforms today (Aug 20). 

Since June 16, 1997, One In A Million has been certified 2x platinum. It is not known how many more have followed since. This is the first in a series of releases that will continue through early October, with new titles appearing regularly. Her September schedule will include soundtracks for Romeo Must Die, in which she co-starred, and her own self-titled album. In October, she will also release the compilations Ultimate Aaliyah and I Care 4 U, rounding out the eagerly awaited releases. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Aaliyah signed a record deal at the age of 12 with her uncle’s label. Hankerson landed her a distribution deal with Jive Records two years later. Jeff Sledge, former A&R for Jive, recalls her as “very intuitive”. 

A Grammy-nominated powerhouse who was airlifted to the grave in 2001 after her plane went down in the Caribbean, she has stood out as one of the few major acts not on streaming platforms like Spotify or Apple Music for years. The situation is better today since that was the case earlier. Before this exciting moment, she had only released one full-length album through streaming services, Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.
