Reason #2: This movie proves that Aaliyah still has a hold on modern pop culture.We all know how passionate Drake feels about Aaliyah. From his numerous Aaliyah references in his songs, to his open letter, to his infamous tattoo of her face on his back, he has reintroduced Aaliyah to a generation that hasn’t spent much time with her.
There are some singers out right now who have an obvious fondness of her image, and it’s interesting seeing not so old school being fused with the newer school. Numerous artists (i.e. Cassie, Ciara) have taken a page from her four-page letter and referenced her either verbally or visually.
