LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyrena announced today that it is releasing Aaliyah kwa Xyrena, a fragrance tribute to the late performer, who was known as the "The Princess of R&B."

'Washington Post' dubbed Aaliyah "Hip-Hop's Lady Di"
From Drake's reported tattoo of Aaliyah on his back to Timbaland's admission to being in upendo with her, the late singer has been the talk of the blogosphere recently. Aaliyah, wewe recall, died at the age of 22 in a tragic plane crash with eight others weeks before 9/11. Unlike other watu mashuhuri who have died young, drama hasn't really overshadowed Aaliyah's legacy. Perhaps that's because she kept her family close.

From siku one, they were extremely involved in her career. Her mother's brother, Barry Hankerson, who managed R. Kelly and had also been married to Gladys Knight, initially managed her career. When the R. Kelly marriage rumors surfaced, her father, Michael Haughton, became her personal manager with her mother Diane assisting heavily. Her brother Rashad and her cousin, Jomo, Barry Hankerson's son, were consistently with her when she worked as well.

But potential career-ending scandal aside, Aaliyah was a promising artist from the beginning. Her debut album, Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, was a mixture of the old, with its obvious riffs off the classic sounds of The Isley Brothers and Betty Wright, and the new, with its hard-edged, hip-hop...

Aaliyah strikes a pose in New York City, 2001
AALIYAH starts speaking about a dream: [i]I lift off, I feel free. No one can reach me. A wonderful feeling. Still, I'm worried that dream a little. What does he want to tell me? That I would escape from the pressures of success?It is dark in my inayopendelewa dream. Someone followed me. Why, I do not know. I'm afraid. Then suddenly I lift off. I fly it. Far away. How do I feel myself? As if I sponges in the air. Free.Weightless. No one can reach me. No one can touch me. A wonderful feeling.Still, I'm worried that dream a little. What does he want to tell me?I would also like to fly in real life sometimes? What? Before the success? From the pressures of onyesha business? No. I enjoy every sekunde of my fame. If I could start my life over again, I would change nothing. Honest.Even as a little girl I knew, I will be famous. On this dream I have been working. Hard. Very hard. I took imba lessons, I took part in school performances. I was doing everything possible to be a good entertainer. After all, a pretty exterior does not make wewe a star.Neither the muziki nor the film industry.Looking back, I assume many people, I would have had no real childhood. A lie! My parents are always careful...

Aaliyah album released in 2001
"We wanted to get it out before 2000 was over, but I couldn't finish it. I wanted to put a lot of time into it. I wanted it to be the best."

"It still has my signature style, but zaidi of a rock flair to it. I feel each song has something wewe don't normally hear today. "

"Just think about love. Most songs are about love. I got happy and sad upendo songs together."

"I decided to self title this album Aaliyah, and I wanted to do that cause my name is Arabic and it has a beautiful meaning. It means the highest, most exalted one, the best, and I want the name to carry through the project. Its different from the last LPs because, its, I'm older, wewe know, I'm zaidi mature, and I think that very evident on the album. So it really showcases Aaliyah, and who she is right now."

"Now that I'm older, I mean that I'm an adult now, and I want that to onyesha through on the album. So my writers and that, we talk, wewe know, they ask me how am I feeling, just as a person, wewe know this point in my life, the things I want to talk about, and they incorporate what I told them.. in the lyrics."

everyone was put on earth for a reason.
Aaliyah's reason was to sing us muziki which she did but went above and beyond.
Aaliyah's muziki actually spoke
her muziki was muziki people could relate to
if she was standing on this earth right in front of me i would tell her how well she accomplished her goal in life
and how much she inspired me to become a musician and actor because of how well she handled her muziki and herself
we'll miss wewe Baby Girl
