The R&B singer Aaliyah, who would have turned 35 this January (she died tragically in a plane crash in 2001), has become an icon for many current artists.
While Aaliyah enjoyed success during her lifetime, with multi-platinum albums and a #1 hit, she didn’t have the commercial power of TLC or Destiny’s Child, and never got the same level of critical respect as Missy Elliot (a hard, fiery rapper, who garnered more praise than a plain-old singer) or the women of the neo-soul movement, like Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, with their explicit links to the ‘70s. Despite this, Aaliyah’s vocals have become a touchstone for a large group of musicians—the latest being the English singer Katy B—many of whom were teenagers when Aaliyah was on the radio.
