A star in the R&B world before she was even out of her teens, Aaliyah's promising career was tragically cut short by her death in a plane crash at age 22. With only three albums under her belt, she'd already earned a place as a talented trendsetter among the R&B elite, having played a major role in popularizing the stuttering, futuristic production style that consumed hip-hop and urban soul in the late '90s. One in a Million and Aaliyah both featured the production of Timbaland, which helped make them some of the most forward-thinking albums of their time, and Aaliyah also enjoyed success as an actress. ~ Steve Huey
