Aaliyah's album was flopping before she died. "we need a resolution" was a disappointment. Rock the boat probably would have still been a hit though and that may have saved the album.

easy to speculate, but as has been mentioned before in the thread, her ability to diversify to keep her appeal in somebody's spotlight was the key to her success.


one thing is for sure, i know we all, fans and potential doubters alike, would give a lot to see how things would be different had she lived to see today

also, remember the number of projects that fell apart and/or didn't go as far due to aaliyah's death? mainly movie stuff, she was to play the lead in honey and then the remake of sparkle was canceled and i believe there was another movie canceled after her death. she also filmed portions of matrix: reloaded and had already signed to reprise zee in matrix: revolutions...

that's five major studio movie projects in the wings within a 2-3 year span all re-cast or cancelled because she passed...aaliyah was savvy when it came to the business and seemingly had a lot of loyal people in her corner which is rare in entertainment

Not really overrated..shes rarely even mentioned.

Shes being overrated in this thread tho.She was always good but she was never GREAT..not yet anyway.She was just starting to grow into her own person artistically when she passed.im not gon speak on what she COULD HAVE been bcuz nobody knows.She could have been great,she could have fell off.she could have put music on the backburner & focused on movies.she coulda got hooked on drugs & went to rehab & disappeared.who fu*kin knows.The same can be said for any other artists who passed away.

Ppl just get caught up in all the potential that she had.But anybody can tell you that potential doesnt always produce results.
Of course Ginuwine would say this tho,they were close.
RIP to her tho she was a beautiful person in many ways.its sad how she went.

when i say overrated, i don't mean in the sense that she's being put up there with michael, prince. etc. just when people talk about her, especially on here, they overstate how good she was.

she definitely had talent, but she was far from being complete as an artist. she very well could have gone down as the queen of rnb.

i dont know why people call her last album a flop, she died like 6 weeks after it dropped and she was only able to release one single before she died and it was still gold around that time.

and I don't see anybody calling her the queen of r&b. Janet and Mary J pretty much run that. It's about Beyonce, who's music isn't nearly as amazing as Janet and Mary J but she's the "it" R&B singer of today. In my honest opinion all of Beyonce's albums were pretty underwhelming and One in a Million and Aaliyah both shyt on everything B released...

Everybody's just saying in this thread how she was rising up to becoming huge, in movies and music and I agree.. That's not overrating. If anybody is one of the most overrated artist it has to be Beyonce even though I respect her a lot as a singer. It's all speculation though but it's obvious she was on the rise rather than decline..

The thing is, her album was not a disappointment, it was more left field because of what she had becole known for, and she was stepping out of her comfort zone by not relying on Timbo's production and Missy's songwriting as much. I honestly believed, that had she been still alive, she would literally sh*t on beyonce's career. Moreover, artists like ashanti and Ciara would either not been discovered or possibly would have deemed knock-offs of her and maybe would have had marginal success. I'm not saying she was the greatest singer but I'm simply saying that she died at the pinnacle of her career's rise, and we unfortunately didn't get to see her whole story unfold

I disagree

Not saying A wasnt talented , but most artist from the 90's are not here today due to how much the game / customer's changed and the digital age. She would have had to re-invent herself kinda like what Madonna has been doing the 25 plus years. Aaliyah was going straight into movies and most likely would've stayed an actress. Sorta like what Queen Latifah is doing.


But homegirl could sing and not to be fu*ked with during her time.
