Happy birthday Babygirl Aaliyah.. x

January 16th, 2011


When Aaliyah passed away it was definitely a ‘where we you’ moment and I know I remember where I was. Everyone says how differrent the music game would have been if certain entertainers were still alive – Tupac, Biggie and Aaliyah falls into that category.

Today would have been her 32nd birthday and in honour of that here’s a timeless Aaliyah song, in her memory.
