Aaliyah - Rock The Boat
"Theres something about her. To this day, even 10 years after her passing in 2001, Aaliyah draws you in. Her allure lies upon the medley of her velvety vocals and her effortless transition from vulnerability to sensuality and back again. We still fawn over each piece of Aaliyah's legacy -- her sound, her style, the beauty in her subtleties. We get lost in daydream of the icon she was becoming." -Rolling Stone
