Aaliyah’s legacy will not die: a new book about her is on the way
Aaliyah to release her songs on streaming platforms soon as fans are demanding her music.
Billboard exclusively revealed that the new book: Baby girl, better known as Aaliyah will be dropped on August 17th, 2021. The book by Kathy Iandoli will be about the young artist’s career and life, which tragically ended on August 25th, 2001, when she was 22.
Aaliyah’s fans have not forgotten her, as they cannot wait to read this book. On the nineteenth anniversary of her death, they even feared her musical legacy might be forgotten, and demanded that her remaining two albums become available on streaming services. They argued that it was fundamental that music by Aaliyah was available to everybody, just as it is only fair that everyone has access to all the music from other important musical figures.
The R&B singer, whose full name was Aaliyah Dana Haughton, started her music career at the age of ten, releasing her first album, Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, when she was fourteen years old. Her contribution to R&B music was extremely important, which is proved by all the awards she won during her short career. Billboard Music Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards are some examples of all the victories and nominations her music got. Those interested in seeing them all may go on her official website.
Her music is described as R&B featuring a mix of pop, soul and hip hop. Her influence in R&B became fundamental, and her combination of what Bruce Britt defined her “schoolgirl charm” and “urban grit” are to be found in many of her albums. Some of them are Rolling Stones, One in a Million, and the self-titled Aaliyah.
Baby girl, better known as Aaliyah will include information about the investigation on the plane crash during which the young girl passed away. It will also feature some details about her personal life, such as her controversial relationship with R.Kelly and other things which were completely unknown before.Iandoli declared that she wrote this book as Aaliyah’s fan, hoping that it will honour her memory as she deserves.
