but it would be interesting to see parallel if say Rihanna's life was cut short.. everyone would argue she had some monster singles but shit albums..
One in a Million is still a dope album to me, the 1st album is dear to me because her voice had way more range than any of them after and to be 15 she had exceptional vocal control when you put things into perspective considering technology wasn't where it is now a la auto tune now. The last one you could tell her & Timbaland were just getting started on something that potentially could have been great down the line.
imo Aaliyah had dope songs on their own..but how can you judge one off 3 albums???? I always say it's like saying Big was the greatest off 2 albums, shit just don't mesh.
Whoever said she was everything for any female around 30 from that era (I'm 29) hit it on the nail. She wasn't stuck up or portraying something she wasn't like some females of that era and we gravitated towards that. She's EVERYTHING that Keri, Ciara etc aren't. She knew her limits and worked it with dope production and played up her dancing. THAT is the reason she could have very well been the next Janet(who at one time played to the same strengths and weaknesses).
I want to talk to Jesus, my mama, and Marvin Gaye when I get to heaven.
