13 years ago Aaliyah and her crew blessed us with another masterpiece to cherish! This album was, one more time, full of surprises and sounded different from what she had done before! It was always like that with our BabyGirl, she always offered to us something new and ahead of it’s time! Play this album today and it’s still sounds way better & appart from what you’re hearing on the radio! Aaliyah was definitly in the futur and far away from all the artists out at that time!
This album proves it! Like One In A Million proved it in 96!
That’s also why people are missing her like crazy, I mean, we aren’t the only ones, die hard fans, who miss her, even people who simply loved her music and unique style miss her and still talk about the impact she had in this music industry and into the R&B…
Well, today is the self titled album day!!! So enjoy your day my Aaliyah fam ;)
My top 5 from the album is:
- We Need A Resolution
- Rock The Boat
- More Than A Woman
- It’s Whatever
- I can Be
Guys, the book is there! See pic number 4! There was some beautiful flowers! I bought her favorite flowers and left a cheque for the Aaliyah Memorial Fund. I also took a picture with a shirt of aaliyahalways design, it looks amazing! And with my new Jacket!
I just broke down in tears because I couldn’t leave her, I don’t know why but I’m like: “I want to stay close to her” I really can feel her presence with me when I’m there! So I stayed there untill almost 4PM, untill Ferncliff close its doors. The taxi man said to me when he saw my shirt: “Aww you’re gonna see Aaliyah. It’s crazy, a lot of people go to visit her, I’ve never seen that!”
To know that she receives all this love warmed my heart at a point you can’t imagine!!!!! Untill next time Lili and Michael.

Today, May 24th 2014, marks 20 years since the release of Aaliyah’s debut album ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number’.
Shrouded in mystery & baggy clothing, Aaliyah acquired the world’s attention at the young age of 15 when her first single ‘Back and Forth’ landed #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart; dethroning her then album producer R.Kelly and his track 'Your Body’s Callin'.
The song was released as the album’s lead single in early 1994 and was certified Gold by the RIAA on June 9, 1994.
Shortly after the release of ‘Back & Forth’, the album was released under Jive records on May 24, 1994. Another Top 5 Gold single was spawned. Not only was this single a remake of an Isley Brothers classic, but it also flexed Aaliyah’s octave range and vocal versatility. Her rendition of ‘At Your Best (You Are Love)’ ripped the airwaves and its listeners with its tumultuous and sensuous harmonies. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on October 25, 1994.
'Age Ain't Nothing But a Number' was released as the third (and final single in the United States). Two more singles were released internationally: 'Down With The Clique' and 'The Thing I Like' which also featured on the soundtrack for the action-comedy film, A Low Down Dirty Shame.
Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number received favorable reviews from critics. Many noted Aaliyah’s vocal ability and praised the soft spoken enigma for her distinct singing style that set her apart from the masses. The Teen Queen, whose name (pronounced Ah-Lee-Yah) meant, the Highest, Most Exalted One…The Best, often hid behind dark sunglasses & a strong sense of bravado. Aaliyah was credited for redefining R&B by blending her voice with Kelly’s new jack swing. The album peaked at #18 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum by the RIAA on September 01, 1994.
It was last certified 2X Multiplatinum on October 24, 2001.

Try to send me your picture before tomorrow (sunday) cause right now I’m working on it & I think I’ll order it tomorrow ;)
Happy 20th birthday to Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number. I did a photoshoot to celebrate it while blasting the album so loud (sorry my neighbors lol)! 2014 is a very special year, Aaliyah would have celebrated her 20 years of career! I’m preparing the book this week-end and truly hope it’ll touch the heart of Diane and Rashad.
I’m so thankful that her family supported and helped her to achieve her dream, it allowed us to appreciate her talent, to be touched by someone so special and down to earth. We are so lucky, she is precious
Right now, I’m just on a cloud! You know sometimes I just think that BabyGirl is sending me signs to find THE ITEM!!!!
The first picture is a small part of my One In A Million collection with the plaque I actually have. Every fans who know me very well know that I’m a One In A Million addict! Like a junky you know!!! I’ve always been addicted since this masterpiece came out… And I came across this second plaque I was searching for years and years on internet (second picture)! But it was still so expensive for me and I was like “Ok!!! So I’m gonna send an email to the seller and see what happen!”
The seller answered me and asked me why he should reduce the price like that except if I’m a die hard fan and I can prove it… I sent him a picture of me at Ferncliff, a picture of my room “Aaliyahnified” and a picture of my 2 tattoos about her :) :) :) “
He finally accepted my suggestion and added that he was impressed by my dedication! Well…. Did I say that I’m in paradise right now??? I should receive it between May 12th and May 21st! I just can’t wait, I’m all excited!!!!!!!!! I’m gonna ask someone to hang them all on a wall in my appartment and I will take a picture!
The message is: never doubt about anything be confident!!!! ;) <3
These pictures will be posted on Aaliyah.pl in HQ so stay tuned, I’m still a part of it and I haven’t posted since a long time but I have some issues with my computer and need to fixe it before scanning and posting pictures for y’all! But my co-workers are doing the job for the exclusives things ;) ;) :)!
