August 25th, 2001 was a painful evening. Receiving word that R&B recording artist Aaliyah lost her life in a tragic plane crash along with nine others was way too much to handle. She was on the way to bigger and better things. Superstardom was inevitable. Her absence is still glaring yet her influence on today’s rising female R&B artists is undeniable. I could without question call myself a fan. DJ Brainchild was another.
After some reflection and perfect timing, he sprung into action. The end product? A superb mix of her biggest singles as well as album cuts, remixes, b-sides, guest appearances, and soundtrack contributions to commemorate her departure of our physical world (released on the exact day of the tenth anniversary).
