Best song of Aaliyah

There is a reason why thoughtco ranked this song as the best pop song of all time. RIP Aaliyah

2 One In a Milion

This is "The" Aaliyah song. It was the first time that Timbaland's futuristic, unorthodox beats hit the airwaves and Aaliyah was the perfect vehicle to deliver them to the space. Her voice is perfectly meshed with the beat, the crickets create a dramatic crepuscular atmosphere and that amazing bass line is still untouchable.
It's not her best vocal performance, nor is it probably her very best song ("Are You That Somebody? " is perhaps the height of her vocal delivers AND of Timbaland's ridiculous creativity), but it's her signature song and the tune that fits best her style and her persona.
It's Aaliyah at her most. And best.

Amazing song along with amazing lyrics. I hope she found peace and I just wanna let A aliyah know we still love and adore her music, her legacy still lives on and we haven't forgotten her. MAY SHE REST IN THE ARMS OF GOD FOR ALL ETERNITY.

This song is one in a milion!
