This feature is a part of Aaliyah Week, celebrating the 20th anniversary of her debut album. Check in every day this week for another feature on the hit-maker.
Aaliyah was many things to many people. According to friends, collaborators, and associates she was at once beautiful, elegant, approachable, and friendly. “I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original,” she told Jet magazine in 2001, shortly before her untimely passing in August of that year.
We did some digging to find photos of Aaliyah from throughout her brief career that epitomized all of the above qualities. From hanging with fellow stars like Jay Z, Puffy, and Missy Elliott to spending quality time in the spotlight, here's 50 Photos of Aaliyah That You've (Probably) Never Seen. This is a wonderful trip down memory lane you'll want to take with Baby Girl.
