If Aaliyah were still alive would she still dominate the scene?

Don't know....she prolly still be hot, but music change, peoples taste change. Ciara is a little clone of her so it's kinda good to see that come back...B wouldn't have been so hot. AKeys might not have been either...whose to say.

Same thing can be said of Jay-Z if BIG weren't dead...whose to say.
i say alicia keys would still be what she is today cuz imo Aaliyah was not the great artist that everyone says she was if you ask me she is just another artist that wasn't known as great until she died there are some that are more talented her

Did She Ever Really "DOMINATE" The Scene?
uhm .. can i ask a ? .. where were you between the years 96-2000 .. did u watch t.v.?? .. did u go outside ?? and see what girls were wearing .. what the majority of scrappers were bumping? ..

she was on her way to her creative peak, so she most likely would of been on top. It probably would of been her, A Keys and B as the top 3.

brandy and lauryn hill had the late 90s. aaliyah doesnt even have anything to show for the late 90s. her stuff was straight, but she didnt dominate anything. she was maintaining. she'd probably be in Felloffsville with Brandy and Ashanti right now if she was still alive. she was b-list before the crash and then all of a sudden all these closet fans come outta nowhere and start buyin her cd's and tryin to pass her off as a legend. exact same thing would happen to a guy like Mario if he died today and we all know he isnt runnin anything

wow .. ok- she was a waaaay more popular singer than mario that`s for sure. then u say b-list??= impossible can u think of any rnb female that warner bro`s would seek after for the matrix (2 & 3). .. 3 mil is not b-list bro. =].
--BRANDY went gold .. Ashanti goes platinum-but she can`t hold her own[period]

I didn't feel Aaliyah one bit. Her entire career was Timbaland just like Magoo & Bubba Sparxx. She may have been fine, but her singing was on the same level as...lets say...Ashanti or Nivea. No strength in Aaliyah's voice at all.

Yo, are you serious? First off, she was hot from her FIRST album (which was produced by R. Kelly), so Tim obviously wasn't her ENTIRE career. Aaliyah brought a whole style of her own to the game. What you call a weak voice, was actually a perfect compliment to those bass-heavy beats she sang over. Plus, she had excellent timing when she sang and her voice was smooth and relaxing, kinda like a young Sade. Everyone can't have powerful pipes like Mary and Faith or ridiculous range like Mariah and Whitney, but Aaliyah could actually sing, which made her 10 times better than Ashanti and Nivea (and you can throw Ciara and that horrible Keisha Cole chick in there too) will ever be. Holla.

prolly, i mean she could dance real well and she still had that 90's style rnb in mind when she recorded. only female artists i mess wit are alicia keys, destiny's child(survivor album), TLC. Ciara is kinda coo.

agreed with you guys that she wasnt anything special, she had catchy songs like everyone else in the game, she wasnt in her own class or anything, just cause she dead now you acting like she was some legend. She had some R & B songs and they werent that even that hot. They were alright songs but she got nothing thats a classic or anything. Acting like she all that or like she even dominated back then, please she wasnt a huge star back then and she wouldnt be now

she wasn`t a legend yet. she was just legendary material. but that wasn`t the topic.. "If Aaliyah were still alive would she still dominate the scene? " <- wether u want to believe it or not she did have most of the 90`s on lock, and still managed to come back in 01` and sell 200, 000 da first week. in about 3o years "one in a million" will be a classic.. trust.

straight up its simple...the sh*t that everyone is coming out with nowadays doesnt even compare to aaliyah stuff...during the 90s thats when msot of the HUGE talent came out...and its still around...you have your pac and biggie you have your jayzs your faith and your mary j...and aaliyah was riding that wave...she was destined for huge success...all thse artists are still huge today...You cant even use ashanti in the same sentence as her...thats just disrespect...girl had talent and could sing

^Co signs.
Personally i think aaliyah was better looking than any R&B chick today. Milian comes close though

i would say it would be a tight competition between her and ciara, aaliyah was overly talented and i even could see that she'd probably be doing nuff of the dances ciara comin in with. But don't sleep on Mya that girl can dance her a.ss off too. I think it would be really tight btwn aaliyah and ciara. the media would make all comparisons btwn them.
