The loss of sexual innocence 1999 watch online free
On August 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight others were killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas after filming the music video for the single "Rock the Boat".
The pilot, Luis Morales III, was unlicensed at the time of the accident and toxicology tests revealed that he had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his system.
Aaliyah's family was very close due to the struggles of her grandparents and when the Haughtons moved to Detroit, the Hankersons were ready to take them in if necessary.
These same bonds led to ties in the music industry, under the Blackground Records label.
In 2000, Aaliyah appeared in her first film, Romeo Must Die.
She contributed to the film's soundtrack, which spawned the single "Try Again".
The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 solely on airplay, making Aaliyah the first artist in Billboard history to achieve this goal.
"You always have to deal with people who are jealous, but there were so few it didn't even matter.
Her cousin Jomo had a pet alligator, which Aaliyah felt was too much, remarking, "that was something I wasn't going to stroke." Her grandmother died in 1991.
Years after her death, Aaliyah said her grandmother supported everyone in the family and always wanted to hear her sing, as well as admitting that she "spoiled" her and her brother Rashad "to death." She also enjoyed Aaliyah's singing and would have Aaliyah to sing for her.
Aaliyah has sold an estimated 24 to 32 million albums worldwide.
She has been credited for helping redefine contemporary R&B, pop and hip hop, earning her the nicknames "Princess of R&B" and "Queen of Urban Pop".
