Can you believe that 24 long years ago, the late great Aaliyah dropped her debut studio album “Age A’int Nothing But a Number”? The album did really well, releasing two singles off the the album that went Gold; Back & Forth, and At Your Best (You Are Love). Her mentor at the time R. Kelly wrote as well as produced on the album. The album itself however, went two times platinum.
Even though she was before my time (releasing her first album two years before I was born), hearing her musical content makes me truly believe that if her life wasn’t cut short tragically, she would have been considered amongst the R&B greats when it was all said and done.
