Ginuwine Says Aaliyah Would Be 'Neck & Neck' With Beyonce
 

 

R&B songstress Aaliyah Haughton would have turned 32 years old back in January. After her tragic death in 2001, many female artists drew comparison to the R&B singer with fierce dance moves. However, if you ask Ginuwine, Beyoncé is the artist that reminds him most of Aaliyah.

"Aaliyah was in a class by herself," Ginuwine tells The BoomBox. "If you're talking triple threat of a writer, singer and actress, that would probably be Beyoncé. If Aaliyah were still here, she and Beyoncé would be neck and neck."

Beyoncé's career with Destiny's Child was already thriving when Aaliyah was alive. The trio released their self-titled debut in 1998, and Aaliyah passed just three years after that. Both also went on to pursue acting alongside music. Aaliyah added actress to her resume with roles in 2000's 'Romeo Must Die' and a lead role in 2002's 'Queen of the Damned,' which was released after the singer passed away.

The DC front woman had parts in films like MTV's 'Carmen: A Hip Hopera in 2001,' along with ancillary roles in 2002's 'Austin Powers in Goldmember' and 'The f!ghting Temptations' a year later, before really driving the point home with her riveting roles in 2006's 'Dreamgirls' and 2008's 'Cadillac Records,' which really solidified the artist's position as a serious actress. While Aaliyah's life was cut short and she was unable to continue her career, Ginuwine is confident that Miss Haughton would have been equally successful.

While the Aaliyah comparisons with newer artists still float on today, Ginuwine says it's nothing to shun. "Ain't nothing wrong with that," he says. "I think everyone should aspire to be someone great, and that was one of the greats. Aaliyah was one of the great ones."

I hate when people say this. Nobody would really know, Aaliyah could've ended up like Lauryn Hill, unless you were able to see a parallel world where she was alive, nobody knows sh*t.

she was just starting to come into her own when she died. she was alive, i think the album she would've made after the self-titled one would've blown up

Damn, it's crazy how the hip hop scene would be if Aaliyah didn't go.

I think the type of music she made fit her time... She probably wouldnt be able to make pop music for this era and do well...

She'd be on the level of r.kelly... musically, and orgasmically.


you crazy....timbo said he had so much music for aaliyah still....tim was trying to make aaliyah the biggest pop star ever.....if tim is lacing justin timberlake with work....imagine the work he had for aaliyah...he LOVED her..

i believe so too. did everyone forget that aaliyah had serious talent in each of those arenas, equally as if not more beautiful, cross-over appeal like crazy and also that beyonce is a terrible actress whereas aaliyah was respected on that front?

she'd be a cash cow and have just as much exposure. her career was just taking off into the stratosphere when she passed.

with the way album sales are today she probably would have turned more to acting than singing, she didn't seem like the other artists out back then, she would have figured out some way to stay in the spotlight, i don't think she would have ended up like tweet, ginuwine, or even torrey carter.

Yeah. You can hear it in some of the work. Cry Me a River is such an Aaliyah song.

And to whoever said Beyonce can't sing... um... she can clearly sing better than Aaliyah. I don't like Beyonce's music at all, or her personality.. or whatever.. and Aaliyah is an angel.. but come on.. Beyonce is clearly the better singer between the two.

Aaliyah could've kept the Roc together
