Aaliyah was R&B's sweetheart. She spent her career working closely with super producers Timbaland and Missy Elliot and went on to sell millions of records. Aaliyah was also known for her sexy tomboyish style, which caught the eye of film executives. The singer began to transition into acting starring in Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned. In 2001 Aaliyah was killed in a tragic plane crash after filling her last music video, Rock the Boat.
