As announced today by Rashad, there is an Aaliyah fragrance available!
It can be pre-ordered from the Xyrena online shop. All pre-orders are to be shipped in mid-October. Read more about the fragrance:
Aaliyah™ by Xyrena is the first and only official fragrance tribute to the Princess of R&B. Developed in close collaboration with Diane & Rashad Haughton (the late singer and actress’s mother and brother), Xyrena crafted a true aromatic tribute inspired by actual fragrances Aaliyah wore. Aaliyah by Xyrena is unisex but leans masculine, as Aaliyah favored traditional men’s scents in line with her signature, sexy tomboy image. The formula is also a hue of black which was Aaliyah’s favorite color. Aaliyah by Xyrena has base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, amber, and jasmine; middle notes of black pepper, violet and leather; with top notes of mint, lavender and mandarin.
5% of all sales from this release will be donated to The Aaliyah Memorial Fund.
As todays marks 14th anniversary of Aaliyahs tragic death we decided to share many beautiful things to make this day more bearable. Despite all the sadness this day carries lets cherish everything we have: videos, photos and especially music. Therefore the Aaliyah.PL Team decided to share many amazing photos of our BabyGirl, a few audio tracks and a video of Aaliyah performing ‘Are You That Somebody?’ on KMEL All Star Jam.
Recently a quite big movement started among Aaliyah fans. The goal is to get Aaliyah make-up collection done by MAC Cosmetics, a brand that she loved. It is going great, but still all support the TeamAaliyah can get is needed, as well as signatures for the petition that was made. Yet the most important part of this is the fact that the Haughton Family is on board with us:
Today Aaliyah would have turned 35. After accomplishing so much by the tender age of 22, one can only imagine where she would be in her life and career today. A unique, gifted, giving and extremely humble artist and human being, Aaliyah left a lasting imprint not only on our hearts and minds, but on the music industry as a whole. So let’s celebrate her life and the legacy she left behind for us to cherish. Take a look at a few high quality photos from her childhood & reminisce along with us.
Happy Birthday LiLi!
With Aaliyah in our hearts,
Zee, AzzIzz, AaliyahAlways & Sabrina
Is a posthumous Aaliyah album still in the works? After announcing plans to spearhead the project, Drake is now uncertain of its future.
In August 2012, the Toronto MC announced that he and producer Noah “40″ Shebib had been tapped by Blackground Records to produce a new album from Aaliyah and had received the family’s blessing. But once word got out, Aaliyah’s fans and close collaborators expressed their disapproval.
During an interview with Elliott Wilson for his CRWN series this week, Drake was asked about the project’s status.
“I don’t know. I think the press got out of hand and they maybe had a different vision for it or something,” he said. “It was sounding great to me. Whatever they end up doing with it, I wish them the best of luck.”
While he may not be as involved, he hopes that his song will still make the cut. “There might be a record on there with me and her, I’m not sure. It was great. It sounded really good.”
One year ago, Drake released his Aaliyah collaboration “Enough Said” to mixed reviews.
Aaliyah’s friends including Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and DMX were critical of releasing new music from the late singer. “We’re talking about unfinished music and we don’t know her reasoning for not putting those records out,” said Missy.
There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Chris Brown’s new single “Don’t Think They Know’ featuring the late Aaliyah. Of course fans of Aaliyah would already know that the song is actually a remake of the record she originally recorded with Digital Black from the R&B group Playa. YouKnowIGotSoul had a chance to speak with Digital Black about the history behind the track “Don’t Think They Know”.
The origins of “Don’t Think They Know”: It was a trip, J-Dub gave me the track in Australia when Aaliyah was working on “Queen of the Damned”. It was one of those records that I specifically wanted to do for the fans because Aaliyah really cared about her fans. It was a song to give back to them. Just knowing her and being around her, I just tried to write a record to let the fans know that we would do this thing for free because it’s an honor for people to appreciate our music. We recorded the record when we got back to LA and that was after they had mixed and mastered the album, so it was supposed to be on Playa’s album.
Finding out Chris Brown would be remaking the song: I was blessed, I felt it was an honor because of how many songs Static and I had recorded that haven’t been released. For him to choose a record that was probably already heard, it was an honor. In this business, you do it with a chance of making money which is good, but for me it was also confirmation that the Playa sound is still alive. I always felt we were underrated as a group, so it’s just confirmation that years later, a record that wasn’t even heard, would come out. It just shows you that you’ll never know how long it takes for that seed to become a tree, but once it becomes a tree, it bears a fruit. It’s a blessing.
Chris Brown’s version: I love it. I’m a fan of Chris Brown. He’s one of the true singers in the younger genre of R&B/Pop. I’m just being honest, it’s a dope record. I love what they did.
Thoughts on new artists using unreleased Aaliyah material: It’s a touchy subject. I’m indifferent with it because I feel both sides. I understand the people who say the stuff shouldn’t be touched and I feel the people who feel like it should come out. Aaliyah poured her heart out to everything she did and sometimes you feel like it’s a shame that some of the stuff won’t be heard.
Playa’s influence on the new generation: Drake sampled us last year and Chris Brown is using our record now. I know I can speak for Static Major and Smoke E. Digglera on this, when you do music you want people to enjoy it. Sometimes it takes a minute for people to catch on. I know we have a huge underground following and I know I’ve heard people say that Playa was the most underrated group. I guess our legacy is still being written. I’m just enjoying my view right now. I mean come on man, Chris Brown and Drake listen to our music. I wish Static was here to see it. It feels pretty good though, I can’t complain.
Future plans: I’m working with my son on his project right now. I’ve been working with a few producers and just getting my feet wet again. I still do music when I feel like it because I’m a father as well. The next thing is definitely my son Richy B, he’s only 18. All my kids sing and I wasn’t singing as a good as my daughter when I was 14. You definitely heard the last of me because with music, you’re always a hit away.
The long-awaited song and video featuring Aaliyah is finally released! The official title was changed to original “Don’t Think They Know”. As we could see in the preview, Aaliyah was included in the clip with few short scenes from her “Try Again” and “If Your Girl Only Knew” videos. Also, at the end you can read a dedication from Chris speaking for the whole new generation: “Dear Aaliyah, we love and miss you, thank you for inspiring us all”
The song will be available on up-coming Chris album, “X”, out July 16th.
