Picture this! It’s a hot Friday night in mid-June. You’re cruising down the block in your first car and headed to pick up your friends. What was the one R&B jam you had to be bumping in your car to set the mood? We’ll give you a hint, it’s this week’s Throwback Thursday song — Aaliyah’s breakout hit “Back & Forth,” from her 1994 debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number.”
Blended with the sounds of modern R&B and hip-hop beats, “Back & Forth” captured the attitude of every teenager across the world during the summer time — having a good time with friends. R&B fans had such a good time, it earned Aaliyah a No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles. The song also peaked No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The gold-selling single was one of many of the late singer’s hit records. Not only during the summer, but anytime of the year, we can continue to go ‘back and forth.’
