20 years have passed since the US release of Aaliyah’s self-titled album, also known as ‘The Red Album’. This was sadly her final studio album.
The album produced three timeless singles: ‘We Need A Resolution’, ‘More Than A Woman’, and ‘Rock The Boat’.
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.
