This year, there has been renewed interest in Aaliyah, someone who had mostly gone overlooked, over time. During her era, Aaliyah was easily one of the most-popular singers in the game. Blending soul, pop, hip hop, and R&B, she inspired many artists.
However, Aaliyah was not long for the world, dying in a horrific plane crash. The purpose of the trip was to film her “Rock The Boat” music video. Posthumously, the song has become a classic, in part due to her essentially sacrificing her life to bring the video to life.
Over the years, there have been a lot of Aaliyah tributes. No doubt, this is what Kim Kardashian was trying to do with her Halloween outfit. But, because of her controversial role in this reality TV-era hip hop industry, she is catching heat on Twitter for choosing Aaliyah’s look in the “Try Again” music video as her Halloween look.
