RnBJunkieOfficial Presents... Aaliyah's Top 10 Best Songs



In Aaliyah’s short 7 year career, she accomplished more than most could imagine from three multi-platinum albums, Grammy nominations to starring lead role in Blockbuster films. August 25th marks 17 years since her untimely passing. @RnBJunkieOfficial felt it was only right to look back at her best songs and impact they’ve made spanning her albums and featured soundtrack appearances in our latest edition of Top ten Best Songs. We’ve also included Honorable mentioned cuts.
 
Let us know if you Agree/Disagree with our list…

10 COME OVER
From the Album: I Care 4 U
A standout Johnta Austin cut that didn’t make Aaliyah’s third album and later used on her posthumous album. It became a top 10 R&B hit. Sidenote: R&B duo Changing Faces recorded a version for their third album Visit Me.

09 HOT LIKE FIRE (TIMBALAND’S GROOVE MIX)
From the Album: One In A Million
Often praised as the standout version over the original album version and rightfully so.

08 AT YOUR BEST (YOU ARE LOVE)
From the Album: Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number
At the tender age of 15, Aaliyah skillfully showcased her angelic and melodic voice on her cover of this Isley Brother’s classic. Reintroduced to both the old and new, Aaliyah made it a classic again in her own right.

07 MORE THAN A WOMAN
From the Album: Aaliyah
This Timbaland produced and Grammy-nominated song represented just what Aaliyah was. Released as the second single from Aaliyah’s final album it became a top 10 R&B hit.

06 IF YOUR GIRL ONLY KNEW
From the Album: One In A Million

Released as the lead single from Aaliyah’s sophomore album and the song that really put Timbaland & Missy on the map. The song became Aaliyah’s second No. 1 R&B hit up to that point.

05 MISS YOU

03 ONE IN A MILLION
From the Album: One In A Million

Chosen as the second single in the US from Aaliyah’s sophomore album. While it missed both the Hot 100 and R&B charts, this Timbaland & Missy Elliott penned song would go on to become one of her most innovative and identifiable songs amongst critics and fans alike.

02 ROCK THE BOAT
From the Album: Aaliyah
