Year: 1999

Aaliyah was once asked on an episode of MTV Stipped if she liked rock music, to which she replied, “[I] like rock and all kinds of music.” Specifically, the singer happened to be a big fan of Nine Inch Nails.

In 1999 she reached out to Trent Reznor to produce a song on her last album. The two camps engaged in discussions before her death but, ultimately, scheduling conflicts prevented the collaboration from happening.
