AALIYAH’S biggest albums are to be made available on streaming services, after being out of circulation for the last two decades.
In a statement, Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager, Barry Hankerson announced the news and said he had entered a new partnership with music distribution company Empire, “to introduce Aaliyah and Blackground’s legacy to a new audience”.
It will also enable the label to release albums by Timbaland, Toni Braxton and JoJo which have also been absent from streaming services.
The rollout begins on 20 August with the release of One in a Million.
New titles will be released throughout the rest of the year, including the soundtracks to the film Romeo Must Die, in which Aaliyah co-starred, as well as the compilations Ultimate Aaliyah and I Care 4 U.
