Aaliyah’s album has finally come nearly 20 years after her death.
The sophomore album, One in a Million, is now available on streaming platforms, and includes production from Timbaland and Missy Elliott on tracks like “If Your Girl Only Knew”—which peaked #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, “4 Page Letter,” the album’s hit title track, and more.
Complex writes that One in a Million’s “re-release was made possible due to a partnership between Blackground Records 2.0 (which owns Aaliyah’s catalog and is ran by her uncle, Barry Hankerson) and EMPIRE. It also may be the light at the end of the tunnel that Aaliyah fans have anxiously awaited. Additionally, they have created merchandise to accompany One in a Million’s arrival on streaming.”
The news of the album had stirred controversies, with the Estate of Aaliyah Haughton struggling to protect her legacy by rejecting the posthumous project.
