When considering Aaliyah's track record, it's befitting that her name means "The highest, most exalted one, the best." In 1994, at the age of 14, Aaliyah released her first album, Age Ain't Nothing But A Number. It was an instant success.
In 1996, Aaliyah released her second record, One In A Million. The first single, "If Your Girl Only Knew," went double platinum and contains Timbaland's signature syncopated beats and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott's poignant lyrics. "4 Page Letter" and "Hot Like Fire" were also well received. "I love working with Timbaland," Aaliyah said. "He understands what I can do and always wants to try new things. We have a great chemistry, we are musical soul mates."
Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, J. Dibbs, Daryl Simmons, Kay-Gee, Vincent "V.H." Herbert, and Craig King were also involved with producing One In A Million. The album was multi-platinum and an international hit.
