There’s recently being a clamor for late American artiste Aaliyah songs to be added onto streaming platforms.
The singer who died in a plane crash would have turned 42 on Saturday, January 16th. Coinciding with her post-humous birthday, her estate released a statement saying it was working to get her music on all streaming platforms.

“We hear you and we see you,” the statement from the late singer’s Twitter account reads. “While we share your sentiments and desire to have Aaliyah’s music released, we must acknowledge that these matters are not within our control and, unfortunately, take time. Our inability to share Aaliyah’s music and artistry with the world has been as difficult for us as it has been for all of you. Our priority has always been and will continue to be Aaliyah’s music.”
Much of Aaliyah’s music, most of which were certified double platinum never made it to streaming platforms. However, her debut album “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”, is available on major streaming services.
Her 1996 follow-up, “One in a Million” and her 2001 self-titled album are still unavailable for streaming.

Her estate has now annouced that it’s only being careful so as to protect her legacy.
“In the meantime, however, we are working diligently to protect what is in our control — Aaliyah’s brand, legacy, and intellectual property,” the estate continued. “In doing so, we will continue to release unique and exciting projects to keep Aaliyah’s legacy and light shining. While we understand this may be challenging, we need the support of the fans Aaliyah loved so dearly, until we can resolve all the issues in freeing her music. Undoubtedly, we understand how frustration can lead to angry and disappointment. However, we ask all of you for your continued support and love as we aim to achieve these goals for all of you and our babygirl. We appreciate you.”
Aaliyah real name Dana Haughton died in a fatal plane crash on August 25, 2001, at age 22.
