9. Her Past Work
The thing that made Aaliyah such a influential figure in music was her hits. Her sole number one single "Try Again" was one of the best songs of 2000, garnering her two VMAs for Best Female Artist and Best Video From A Film. "Are You That Somebody" was the 3rd most played song on MTV in 1998, and "At Your Best (You Are Loved)" is now more known than the 1976 Isley Brothers version that she originally covered. We welcome the new Aaliyah songs that are sure to come, but we'll never forget her impeccable music catalog that already exists.
