It peaked at #1 in the US, and has reportedly sold over 13 million copies worldwide.

The ‘Aaliyah’ album was awarded ‘Favourite Soul/R&B Album’ at the American Music Awards in 2002, winning against Janet Jackson and Alicia Keys.

It is still cited by critics as one of the best R&B albums of its time.
