Aaliyah’s catalog is finally making its way to streaming services. First up, is her sophomore album, One in a Million. It arrives just a week ahead of the album’s 25th anniversary (released Aug. 27, 1996) and five days before the 20th anniversary of the singer’s tragic death.
One in a Million features some of Aaliyah’s signature songs such as the title track, “4 Page Letter,” “If Your Girl Only Knew” and “The One I Gave My Heart To.”
Fans can expect the rest of Aaliyah’s catalog to release on streaming services over the next few weeks, courtesy of Blackground Records and EMPIRE.
On September 3, the Romeo Must Die soundtrack, which features the chart-topping hit “Try Again” and “I Don’t Wanna,” will arrive.
On September 10, her self-titled album will be released. Lastly, her compilation albums I Care 4 U and Ultimate Aaliyah will release on October 8.
Aaliyah’s catalog rollout arrives nearly a year after her estate hinted that her music would be hitting streaming services.
“We are excited to announce that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s catalogue, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future,” the Aaliyah Estate said in a statement. “Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates to come!”
Ahead of the official announcement made by Blackground Records in early August, the estate released a counter statement about protecting her legacy.
