Aaliyah’s Music Is Coming to Streaming Soon, Her Estate Says
On Monday (Aug. 25), the estate of Aaliyah Haughton announced meetings to pair the singer’s catalog with a record label and move her music to streaming services have begun. In a heartfelt message sent to Twitter, the “Back In One Piece” singer’s team confirmed the news.
“To our loyal fans: We are excited to announce that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s music catalog, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future, the post begins. “Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates to come!”
The good news arrived on the 19th anniversary of her death in 2001. On Aug. 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight team members were killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas, coming back from filming the music video for her upcoming single “Rock the Boat.”
If everything goes according to plan, then Aaliyah albums like One in a Million and Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number along with the possibility of tracks that have yet to be heard by fans will arrive on Apple Music and Spotify. This will also be the second time her music has been made available for fans, back in 2017, Aaliyah’s greatest hits were made available for streaming for 24-hours-only before being yanked away from fans.
