Aaliyah fans have been patiently waiting for the singer’s music to be placed on streaming services — and the late singer’s estate offered a recent update as to when and if fans could expect her catalog to be placed on streaming services in the near future.
“We hear you and we see you,” the statement from the late singer’s Twitter account reads. “While we share your sentiments and desire to have Aaliyah’s music released, we must acknowledge that these matters are not within our control and, unfortunately, take time. Our inability to share Aaliyah’s music and artistry with the world has been as difficult for us as it has been for all of you. Our priority has always been and will continue to be Aaliyah’s music.
“In the meantime, however, we are working diligently to protect what is in our control — Aaliyah’s brand, legacy, and intellectual property,” the statement continued. “In doing so, we will continue to release unique and exciting projects to keep Aaliyah’s legacy and light shining.”
At present, Aaliyah’s debut album, ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number,’ is widely available on major streaming services, but her 1996 follow-up, ‘One in a Million’, and her 2001 self-titled album have not been made public.
The statement concludes, “Undoubtedly, we understand how frustration can lead to angry and disappointment. However, we ask all of you for your continued support and love as we aim to achieve these goals for all of you and our babygirl. We appreciate you.”
