Maybe an album every now and then. Hopefully would’ve improved her roles from Queen of the Damned.

I mean, she was always good...but, that Aaliyah album with Rock the Boat and More than a Woman was different. Her star was so bright.

IMO Keybeats and Static were an amazing combo...

I do wonder if this was gonna happen. We forget the pressures of the early 2000s and I don't think that album does well if she doesn't pass. The vampire movie she was in that was supposed to be her acting breakout was terrible.

The beef with the Hankersons and timbo was already full blown (which is why he only has 3 songs on it) and they are the reason that her songs still weren't on streaming until recently.

So we have label beef brewing and her hitmaker estranged.. if the album doesn't do well then there could've easily been some terrible decisions made at the time. Even when we look back at Beyonce's transition through that period there are some really rough patches.

Can you expound? What was the issue with the label (or was it management only)?
What rough patches did Beyoncé go through back then?

It is the same issue as it is now...

The label is HER family (uncle). Just the typical bad business. I mean this is the same dude who let all the R Kelly stuff go down.

You can ask Jojo how bad the situation was over there

https://www.vulture.com/2015/10/jojo-fighting-the-major-label-man-in-her-own-words.html

So if this was how they were playing I think what happens is the album underperforms... Timbo and Missy are off to make a new superstar (They both got labels at that time.) and then Aaliyah is left w/o that direction and magic from the OG team.

She probably jumps fully into Hollywood... Ashanti and Beyonce still happen and then she fades a bit.

5 million or something sold, no - but her and Static were in SYNC on that album.

And her uncle Barry Hankerson is a POS. He kept JoJo's music hostage forever too.

We Need A Resolution and More Than A Woman didn't really move the needle as singles. Who knows if Rock The Boat would have actually hit like that if things were different.
That's the part nobody wants to talk about.

Aaliyah received highly positive reviews from critics and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, but sold diminishingly afterwards. When Blackground and Virgin wanted a high-charting single to increase the album's sales, Aaliyah shot a music video for the song "Rock the Boat" in the Bahamas, but died in a plane crash on a return flight to the United States on August 25.
