Aaliyah means ‘highest most exalted one’ in Swahili. It’s been 8 years since R&B princess Aaliyah left us. Today we celebrate her beautiful spirit and music. Aaliyah Dana Haughton was wrapping up the video shoot to her single ‘Rock The Boat’ in the Bahamas whenÂ her plane crashed. The world mourned the loss of this talented ‘Queen of Urban Pop’ who was on her way to become one of the biggest artists of our generation. Rest in Peace, Baby Girl.
