Fifteen years ago today, music said goodbye to one of its brightest stars. On the afternoon of August 25, 2001, R&B singer Aaliyah’s plane crashed in the Bahamas, killing her and eight others. The “One in a Million” hit-maker had just wrapped production on the music video for “Rock the Boat” when the accident happened.
Aaliyah would have been 37 today if not for that fateful flight, but even in death, her legacy lives on. The New York native is inarguably one of the most successful R&B artists of all time, selling approximately 32 million records worldwide.
People have been taking to Twitter all day to honor the singer, including Beyonce, who posted this vintage red carpet interview she conducted with Aaliyah.
