Aaliyah Dana Haughton was a singer and actress from the United States who died on August 25, 2001. She has been credited with helping to redefine contemporary R&B, pop, and hip hop, earning her the titles “Princess of R&B” and “Queen of Urban Pop.”

She rose to fame at the age of ten after appearing on Star Search and performing in concert with Gladys Knight. She was born in Brooklyn but raised in Detroit. Aaliyah signed with Jive Records and her uncle Barry Hankerson’s Blackground Records when she was 12 years old.

Hankerson introduced her to R. Kelly, who became her mentor as well as the lead songwriter and producer of her debut album, Age Am not Nothing But a Number. In the United States, the album sold three million copies and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Following allegations of an illegal marriage with Kelly, Aaliyah left Jive and signed with Atlantic Records.

Aaliyah collaborated with Timbaland and Missy Elliott on her second studio album, One in a Million, which sold three million copies in the United States and more than eight million copies worldwide.

Aaliyah made her film debut in Romeo Must Die in 2000. She contributed to the soundtrack of the film, which spawned the single “Try Again.” The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 solely through airplay, making Aaliyah the first artist in Billboard history to do so. 

Following the completion of Romeo Must Die, Aaliyah filmed her role in Queen of the Damned and released her third and final album, Aaliyah, which topped the Billboard 200 in 2001. 

Aaliyah died in an airplane accident in the Bahamas on August 25, 2001, at the age of 22, along with eight other passengers, when the overcrowded plane she was traveling in crashed shortly after takeoff. The pilot was later discovered to have cocaine and alcohol traces in his system and was therefore unqualified to fly the aircraft designated for the flight.

 Aaliyah’s family later filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Blackhawk International Airways, the aircraft’s operator, which was settled out of court.

Aaliyah’s music has maintained commercial success in the decades since her death, thanks to several posthumous releases. She has sold 8.1 million albums in the United States and between 24 and 32 million albums worldwide. 

According to Billboard, she is the tenth most successful female R&B artist in the last 25 years, and the 27th most successful artist in history. Her awards include three American Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, and five Grammy nominations.
