99 Jamz Remembers Aaliyah on Her Birthday, Wednesday, January 16
Even though Aaliyah was only in her teens when she sang most of her songs, she, along with the whole world, already knew that she wasn't just "anybody." She was definitely that somebody. Aaliyah sang timeless songs with the help of producers and songwriters R. Kelly (to whom she was also married as a preteen...), Timbaland, and Missy Elliott. Together they created a short but enduring body of near-perfect work.
"Are You That Somebody"
