#TBT: Are You That Somebody – Aaliyah

Hello my humble readers, no need to fret. Matt is here taking over #ThrowbackThursday for 789!

For my first selection, we have “Are You That Somebody?” by the ever so beautiful Aaliyah (RIP). 

Rolling Stone ranked this jam at number 24 on its “50 Best songs of the nineties list,” where hip-hop saw its finest days (though this is technically a pop song) and was even featured in the movie Dr. Dolittle with Eddie Murphy. With a powerful voice like Aaliyah and backed by the production powerhouse that is known as Timbaland, this song officially slaps. Aaliyah would go on to win a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.

Tune in tomorrow for #FreshMusicFriday

Released in 1998
