Aaliyah's music coming to streaming services in January.

Better late than never
Aaliyah's uncle Barry Hankerson has announced that her full discography will be available on major streaming services on what would have been her 41st birthday: January 26th, 2020. Well technically, her birthday is actually the 16th, so a week after I guess. Only Aaliyah’s debut album, 1994’s 'Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number' was only made available for streaming and that's only because Hankerson didn't own the rights to the R. Kelly-produced project. Now fans will be free to stream her two other albums—1996’s 'One in a Million' and her third and final studio album, 2001’s 'Aaliyah.'  I have ALL of Aaliyah's music in physical format, so this news isn't really a big deal on my end personally. I am happy for her fellow fans that rejoice in this development. But she passed away 18 years ago, and this is something that should have been done a long time ago. Screw Hankerson.
