Happy 31st Birthday Aaliyah

Today marks the birthday of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, who would have just turned 31 if she hadn’t have lost her life in a tragic plane accident back in 2001.

I (like many others) remember when Aaliyah died quite vividly. That day in summer 2001 I was at the Notting Hill Carnival putting up posters for Def Jam when I first heard the news break. Don’t know what thoughts passed through my mind… But I know that the ΛΛLIYΛH album was the soundtrack to the rest of the year.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AALIYAH, we still miss you and cherish your music.
