Still the Princess

After seven years, I still can't believe she's gone...

On Saturday, August 25, 2001, the world lost one of entertainment's brightest stars. Aaliyah Dana Haughton died tragically in a plane crash after concluding the video shoot for the Hype Williams directed "Rock the Boat".

Back in the day, Aaliyah was music's "it-girl". Her final studio album, Aaliyah, received 4 out of 5 stars from Rolling Stones, and went on to sell over seven million copies worldwide. In addition, she was one of the few singer turned actresses that could actually act. Her performances in Romeo Must Die and the posthumously released Queen of the Damned garnered praises from both critics and fans.

What was your favorite Aaliyah song/video?
