One in a Million

That album title of Aaliyah's about "one in million," is an underestimate. The R&B genius is one of a kind. While other divas were slowly figuring the whole hip-hop thing out, Aaliyah embraced it with open arms. On tracks like her magnum opus "Are You That Somebody?" she soared over and slide with beats that could be effortlessly rapped over. Working with producers like Static Major and Timbaland, she simply couldn't be stopped. All these years later, her songs remain stunningly fresh. Her life may have gone too soon, but her music will live forever. 

In honor of what would be her 33rd birthday, here's a video retrospective of her greatest moments.
