The ’90s introduced us to a number of talented R&B artists, but few stars shined brighter than Aaliyah Dana Haughton’s.

From the moment she stepped on the scene with her signature bandana and dark shades it was clear that what we were witnessing was something special. Although we lost her in the physical form during that tragic plane crash in 2001, her legacy continues to burn stronger than ever through her catalog of timeless music.

And being that tomorrow, January 16th, would’ve been her 35th birthday, we thought it was only right to present to you the 10 Aaliyah songs everyone should know.
