Twitter Remembers Aaliyah

Fifteen years ago, the unthinkable happened. Aaliyah Dana Haughton died in a plane crash shortly after taking off in the Bahamas. The beloved singer had just finished shooting a video in the Caribbean nation, when her life was tragically cut short, ending her promising career and changing pop culture forever.

Since her death, Aaliyah has been celebrated by popular artists like Drake, Big Sean, and of course, her frequent collaborators Missy Elliot and Timbaland. Missy took to Instagram to remember “Baby girl.”

“I can still hear your laughter I can clearly see us dancing in the studio me u @timbaland @ginuwine Magoo the whole clique we miss u so much there’s not a day u aren’t thought of!” Missy wrote.
