Aaliyah was hailed as the singer's most mature project. Nearly all of its tracks were written by Steve "Static" Garrett, with Missy Elliott contributing the album's fourth single, "I Care 4 U". Written and demoed by Elliott and Timbaland for One in a Million, although Aaliyah did not record the song for that album (it was determined that there was no room for it), and instead recorded the song for this album. The album was also nominated at the 2002 Grammy Award's for Best Contemporary R&B Album but lost to Alicia Keys.

The album was definitely a crossover hit, while still keeping Aaliyah's huge status in urban music. The album is mainly composed of soul ballads, pop rock songs, and contemporary R&B songs. The R&B song "We Need a Resolution", the reggae-influenced "Rock the Boat", and the dance-pop hit "More Than a Woman" were released as singles worldwide. The soul ballad "I Care 4 U" and the pop rock track "I Can Be" were released in the U.S. only, with "I Can Be" not even being an official single. The soul ballad "I Refuse" was exclusively released in France.

Aaliyah - Biography - AOL Music (1013 words)
Aaliyah's death came on the heels of her third and most accomplished album, making it especially unfortunate that she was robbed of a chance to continue her creative development.
Aaliyah Dana Haughton was born January 16, 1979, in Brooklyn, and named after a Swahili word meaning "most exalted one." Her uncle, Barry Hankerson, was a manager and entertainment lawyer who was married to Gladys Knight for a time, and her mother, also a singer, enrolled Aaliyah in voice lessons before she'd even started school.
Aaliyah subsequently completed filming on the Anne Rice vampire flick Queen of the Damned, playing the title role as a vampire queen, and was cast in a prominent role in the two sequels to The Matrix.
Aaliyah at AllExperts (2648 words)
