When is Aaliyah’s music dropping on Spotify?

Aaliyah’s second studio album, One in a Million, finally hit music streaming platforms on August 20 for the first time, 20 years after her death.

After years of waiting to hear all of her music, including her three studio albums, on digital music services, like Spotify and iTunes, Aaliyah fans were finally treated to a new release.

Though her debut album, Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number, has already been on there for a little while, August 20 brought the first time her sophomore release, One in a Million, found its way onto the platforms.

Originally released on August 27, 1996, when the singer was 17 years old, all of the songs, including its six singles, like If Your Girl Only Knew, are now available to stream.

It immediately made its way to the top of multiple digital charts, which excited fans were happy about and even predicted.

Next up, the soundtrack for action flick Romeo Must Die, which she starred in alongside Jet Li, will come out on September 3 and features her hit song Try Again.

The singer’s third and final studio album – the self-titled Aaliyah – drops on September 10, and the compilation albums I Care 4 U and Ultimate Aaliyah both come out on October 8.

Where is Aaliyah buried?

Born Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the 22-year-old had finished filming the music video for her hit song ‘Rock the Boat’ when she and eight others decided to travel back to Florida almost immediately on August 25, 2001.

But shortly after take-off, the plane crashed in Abaco Islands, the Bahamas.

Everyone on board the plane died.

An investigation declared the singer had suffered “severe burns and a blow to the head” due to a fatal plane crash.

A private funeral mass was held on August 31, 2001, at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in Manhattan following her death.

Her body was set in a silver-plated copper deposit casket and carried in a horse-drawn, glass hearse.

An estimated 800 mourners attended the procession.

Among those in attendance at the private ceremony were hip-hop superstars Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Gladys Knight, Lil’ Kim, and Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs.

Aaliyah is buried at Ferncliff Cemetery in the town of Greenburgh, Westchester County, New York.

Did Aaliyah not want to board the flight that killed her?

Aaliyah didn’t want to get on the doomed flight that caused her death because the singer was worried the small twin-engine plane was overloaded, a new book claims.

It was later revealed that the pilot, who wasn’t qualified to fly the plane, had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his body.

It was also discovered that the Cessna 402 twin-engine light aircraft had exceeded its maximum weight capacity by several hundred pounds.

That weight had also not been evenly distributed, making the aircraft harder to control once it was airborne.

Why the plane was cleared to take off in the first place has largely remained a mystery since the devastating crash almost two decades ago.

Aaliyah, a known anxious flier, actually reportedly refused to board the small plane, believing the size of her seven-person entourage and all of their luggage would be too much for the jet to bear.

A team member then handed Aaliyah a pill, Russel claims, which she took before falling “into a deep sleep”.

She was then carried onto the flight unconscious, he claims, after the pilot finally caved and allowed her team to board.

The flight took off at 6.50pm. It had only got between 60 and 100 feet in the air before nosediving back down to the ground.

Aaliyah and six of the eight others on board were killed instantly. Two others died in hospital.
