Today marks the 15th anniversary since R&B singer and actress Aaliyah died in a place crash. And every year on the anniversary of her death, people like to speculate about where she'd fit in with the current landscape of music. And then inevitably, they start to make those dreadful Beyoncé comparisons.
They say if Aaliyah was still alive it wouldnt be a beyonce— LEO SEASON 8/11 (@__Camron) August 25, 2016
Aaliyah was good at what SHE did. Beyoncé is good at what SHE does. Stop this.— (@MicBEENKnew) August 25, 2016
Queen Bey hears everything. Therefore, she posted this video of her fangirling (like the rest of us) and interviewing Aaliyah on the red carpet before what presumably was the VMAs. Also, her cohost was Sisqó. #TBT, for real.
RIP, Baby Girl.
