Remember coming home from a late-night of hanging out in the city (NYC). Saw this on Yahoo News and asked my brother if he heard.

Upon Aaliyah’s death, every female that had any clout began jockeying for position to claim her audience, since Aaliyah was the only one ushering forth a futuristic sound, thanks in part to the production talents of Timbaland and Missy Elliot (who were, shockingly, not famous until they hooked up with Aaliyah in the first place, who became their muse).

But let's be honest, would Beyonce be anywhere if it wasn't for Aaliyah?

Such a beautiful Girl inside and out. Very influential on female R&B. She was classy, not sure that influenced carried over on all R&B female artist but you can recognize that she did. Set apart.
