i’m not gonna lie to you foxhole,
but i didn’t believe aaliyah’s music would ever get to streaming.
they played my ass plenty of times before when it came to her.
between her estate and that uncle of hers,
after 20+ years,
i just didn’t believe it.
didn’t believe the #aaliyahiscoming and this interview with the uncle of hers:
when i woke up today,
hopped on twitter,
i saw they legit put her album,
“one in a million“,
on my spotify…
I legit bawled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ugly fuckin’ cried for 15 minutes!!!!!!!
it was so ridiculous.
i am such an aaliyah stan and once they stopped putting cd drives on laptops,
it was over for me to listen to her music.
the laptop that i had all her music on died years ago.
i’d go to youtube to listen,
but it didn’t feel the same.
since streaming is here to stay,
i wanted her in on spotify with the rest of my favs.
“one in a million” is the first aaliyah album i bought as a kid.
my best friend at the time older sister was listening to it and i really liked it.
something about the songs really resonated with my spirit.
i liked the other r&b gals (brandy, monica, and mya),
but something about aaliyah really drew me to her.
i begged my mother to buy all of her singles with all the remixes to this album.
i loveddddddd the “one and a million” remix with ginuwine,
but i got that on napster.
remember napster and limewire?
this album was everything for me and really helped me through a lot of my struggles.
the fact that after they released it and this happened:

…shows this is something we all wanted and needed.
their fighting and selfishness truly stopped the bag.
the fans were gonna show up and support our girl.
even writing this is making me cry because it’s been so long and it wasn’t fair.
i’m so happy today that ya’ll don’t understand.
I would tweet my feets on their necks all the time.
they did her so wrong in death,
and even when she was alive,
but i feel that baby girl can transition peacefully and can stop haunting their asses.
lowkey: i hope they drop the singles from this album.
i hope they drop every aaliyah EVERYTHING since they got their shit together.
i’m ready and they gonna do her right.
i will pay them a compliment:
